  1. What a splendid list. Are you going to do some word art with it and frame it? I think it would look especially nice! It reads beautifully and makes me wish that I had written it. I couldn't get to ten. Perhaps I ought to try...

  2. It's interesting that the majority of the things on your list are of little or no monetary value. Proving, I suppose, that it isn't money that makes us happy.

  3. What a good thing to do now and then, Brenda. And I like your friend Vee's suggestion of some sort of Word Art. Has me thinking now!

    Enjoy your day!

  4. What a wonderful idea, Vee... word art... I like it.

  5. What an absolutely wonderful list. And I do think it would make some lovely word art. Maybe we should all make a list and have a favorite things list party day...

  6. This was such a lovely list to read. I especially liked all of the items related to reading and writing. The bowl full of colorful ribbons was an unexpected surprise. I don't think I've ever seen one before but can picture it vividly.

  7. I share so many of your favorites...we may be kindred spirits!

  8. What a wonderful list, Ms. Brenda! I love it! I especially like the food and writing! What a perfedt world! :P

    Have a great week!

  9. Just reading this list makes me relax and smile. Just wonderful!

  10. Hi Brenda! I love your list. I made a list of "100 Things I Love" a few years ago. I go back every once in awhile and add things to it and reread it. Sometimes it is just the thing I need to energize myself! Have a lovely evening! Delisa :)

  11. What a delicious list, Brenda! (I share many of your favorites!)
    So many simple gifts from our Father...

  12. I think this could easily be my list too! Well written!

  13. Hi Brenda, I was thinking about you this afternoon and just thought I would pop over and say hello! I hope you have had a good week. I have been making chocolate cup cakes this afternoon. I send my wishes for a beautiful afternoon! Delisa :)

  14. I love your list and your lovely blog. Hope you have a lovely weekend.

  15. i am with you every one ... Love Helen, Darcy and Bingley xxx

  16. Hehe 'English Country anything' so funny to hear when I live in the English Countryside (Wiltshire). It is mainly smelly farmland around here, quite flat and uninspiring, although I am learning to appreciate the beauty. What I wouldn't give for a trip to beautiful Canada! Perhaps we could house swap! x

  17. Hi Brenda and Happy New Year to you!!!( 2023!☺️) I want to send you greetings with so many thanks for the many ways your “thoughtful self” offers so many gifts of the heart to so many people , like me.
    I send along a prayer that you are well and will know good health in this upcoming year.
    I pray that 2023 brings much joy to you and your family.
    Thank you!! ~ Ann
