10 Things I Can’t Live Without

What are ten things right now in life that bring you enjoyment or make your life a little easier.  We all know that faith, family and friends are on the top of that list but I’m wondering about tangible things.  I figure as we grow and throughout different seasons some of these probably change.  I’d love to know what are your top ten?  For me . . . here’s what I think would be my top ten right now and not necessarily in this order (except for number one) . . .

  1. My Bible/Devotional – Starts my day off right, encourages and lifts up, inspires and provides wisdom.
  2. Coffee – I’m not a coffee a holic but having worked shift work all my life at least one cup a day helps get me going.
  3. Paint and paintbrush (or is that two?)
  4. My IPAD that serves as my organizer of recipes, my connection, my news and more
  5. My Creative Planner – allows me daily creativity as well as keeping me organized.  Also connects me with other friends.
  6. My photo albums – to remember where my family and I have been, where we come from and what God has done for us
  7. Music – it moves me!
  8. Camera – to capture moments in time!
  9. My phone.  I remember being overseas and we didn’t have cell phones.  I’m appreciative of this technology as long as it doesn’t distract or get in the way of family time.
  10. Karate and my boxing gloves – I love the exercise of the mind (memory) and body as well as the reminder that I am can do hard things (with God all things are possible).

Now, how about you?  What things inspire or make your life easier?  I’d love to know.
