One can never have enough canning jars,

sunny weather on a Spring afternoon,

words to express satisfactory joy,

favorite ice cream flavor for dessert,

good sleep after a hard day of labor,

imagination to taste the future,

enthusiasm for one’s progeny,

books to browse in a brown study of books,

yearning for spring during cold winter snow,

seeds to plant in a vegetable garden,

memories to recall in later years,

friends to appreciate your wit and smile,

gratitude for the gift of life and love,

and many more things than listed above.
