    Sarah, thank you so mch for this great list. I’m going to print it and send a copy to my 2 children—they’re pretty good kids tho and really do these things.
    I, on the other hand, will strive to do better on # 18.

    Thanks Sarah!I am so touched. I needed to read something like this Really. I had this huge argument with my daughter. In my car I was asking God to help me to be more self disciplined and later we both sent each other messages to say how sorry we were. She is the most sweetest girl a mother could have. When I read this I have to say I take it as a God send.

    here are gorky’s lyrics to Happiness:

    Oh my heart’s been beating sad
    Can’t help thinking about
    Times that we’ve had.

    Pictures on wall, to minds that fall
    It’s hard knowing some people
    Don’t care at all

    But Happiness will come our way
    And magic comes just not today
    When ships are sailing across the sea
    The lights are on, inside we never see

    So here’s to the day, the dying day
    I’ll carry on drinking but
    I’ll find another way

    And how we soared
    When times are good
    Seems to look these days
    The moon is never full

    But Happiness will come our way
    And magic comes just not today
    When ships are sailing across the sea
    The lights are on, inside we never see

    How long to go?
    I don’t know,
    I don’t know.
    You’ll look in her eyes
    And you’ll know and you’ll know..
