A Few of My Favorite Things

These are a few of my favorite things.

  • My creativity. I love that I can write, draw, paint, and photograph.
  • My optimism. I am always certain that if anything can go wrong, it will.
  • My wife. It took me three attempts to find the right lady but now, life with her, is wonderful.
  • My children. I have two of the most wonderful children in the world. Of coarse all fathers are going to say that but in my case it is absolutely true.
  • My introversion and my extroversion. In college, my fellow nursing students voted me the most extroverted introvert they had ever met. As the years have passed, I have become less extroverted. There are times when I wish I was more outgoing, but I like my alone time by myself or with my wife.
  • My eclectic taste in music. I like country, classical, rock, and folk music. I like Monet and The Far Side. I like “How The West Was Won” and “Airplane!”
  • My sense of humor. I can make myself laugh. I can make everyone laugh. I cheer people up. Lately, this is a precious gift.

“My Favorite Things” is a show tune from the 1959 Rodgers and Hammerstein musical The Sound of Music.

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things.

Cream-colored ponies and crisp apple strudels;
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles;
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings;
These are a few of my favorite things.

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver-white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites,
When the bee stings,
When I’m feeling sad,
I simply remember my favorite things,
And then I don’t feel so bad.
