This was amazing. I'm in awe of you, I'd stopped at 15, and 14 of them would have been boring as hell. Good job Jan! Also, an excellent way to let us get to know you, and love you all the more!

I liked your list. I am sorry for some of the things you have had to endure. I am glad you know how to forgive. I was not bored, but enlightened. Now, I know you better.

I like that you named your truck.

You are a stronger person than me, I would still be very angry over some of the things you have endured.

I wish you and Bob all the best, sounds like you deserve each other.

Thank you for this list.

This is a WONDERFUL list! I read every last one and was not ever bored! You silly goose!! :~) I read these lists that people post and you know, I feel so lucky. I cannot believe what you've had to endure. I posted my list somewhere in my September posts. I thought I'd never think of 100 things, and yet I did and now could keep going. Funny how sitting down and putting it makes so many more things come to mind. You're a strong Gal and you should be very proud of your life.

I enjoyed reading your list. Number fifty-nine was a childhood favorite of mine and I couldn't agree more with seventy-eight.

You have helped inspire me to attempt this on my own. Thanks!

You have such a nice smile and pretty eyes which hide some of the absolute Bs you have had to endure. Shame on those who projected their fears and inferiorities onto you.

I hope Bob gets there soon for you.
