1.Listen to great music.
2.Do Saturday-morning cartoons in your jammies.
3.Sit outside and enjoy the sun on your face.
4.Keep an eye on squirrels, bluejays, and children-- there's always a comedian around, if you look.
5.Play "Name that cloud."
6.Count your blessings.
7.Look at family photos.
8.Sit quietly with someone you love.
9.Smell flowers, babies, or the ocean.

14.Throw a tantrum.
15.Meditate and pray.
18.Let people pamper you.

I very much enjoyed this post but it also made me very sad. These are things that many of us take for granted each day. Terri has been confined to that room in the hospice for so long now. Michael Schiavo has forbidden the staff to even let her be wheeled outside and insists that the blinds of her room be drawn so she doesn't get to feel the sun on her face. Her time with her family is severly restricted so I doubt she gets as much cuddling or pampering as she needs.

I pray that she survives. If she does, she deserves to be with the family that loves her . . . and to enjoy everything on your wonderful list.

I hope you don't mind but I linked to this post and the "Why Is Terri Schindler-Schiavo My Problem?" post. Both were excellent!
