Things I Need & Love

Today's challenge is to write about 10 things I couldn't live without... for example, if I was stranded on an island. Well, living with chronic pain / illness can actually sometimes feel like being alone on a stranded island. My world is primarily within the walls of my apartment. I venture out as much as I can, but I spend the vast majority of my time here.

So, the things I need and want in my home now are the things I would need and want if I was stranded on an island. For this blog post, I'm going to change the prompt a bit. Here are 3 different lists: what I need / love the most, what I'd like to have, and what makes life worth living.

5 things that I need / love the most:
  1. The unconditional love of our Father in heaven.
  2. The strength and love of my amazing husband.
  3. The love and support of my parents / family.
  4. The encouragement and support of my (online) friends.
  5. The hope that there will be days with less pain in the future.
5 things that I'd like to have:
  1. A journal and pen.
  2. Scrapbooking supplies.
  3. Cell phone with internet access, so I can keep in touch with the outside world.
  4. A soft pillow / blanket / bed.
  5. Migraine meds.
5 things that make life worth living:
  1. Faith
  2. Hope
  3. Love
  4. Health
  5. Laughter
