What do YOU like?

In the Huffmans' playroom, they have a Caroline poster...

I just love that!

Here's the fine print, from the bottom right....
Look at her favorite song!
(Elizabeth told me that Caroline sings at the top of her lungs in church.
Is that not wonderful?)

And look at her favorite place to go!
Mimi and Pop's house.
(One of these days I'm going to go there.)

That poster is so great.

It helps me get to know (and appreciate even more) little Caroline.

So what's YOUR favorite book, toy, song, place to go, restaurant and movie?

I think thinking about the answers to that is fun.
And healthy.

It's hard to think of what you like - and worry at the same time.

It kind of fits with this wonderful Bible verse:

Philippians 4:8-- Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

So let's think about our favorite stuff, instead thinking of our worries or aggravations.

Me, I'm thinking (this minute) of the book, THE BODY IN THE LIBRARY (Agatha Christie),
 the toy, "Mr. Potato Head,"
the song "My Girl",
the place to go as Ken and Pat's house in Waco,
the restaurant as Pappadeaux (seafood),
and the movie THE SOUND OF MUSIC.

That was off the top of my head.

What do YOU like -  off the top of YOUR head?
(well, besides hair if you're bald)
