I believe

No matter how difficult life gets, I still believe the best about life and people and God and how things will end. There is so much I believe and this little short list does not cover it all. 

This list represents just some of the things that came to mind as I sat to think about what I believe. Some are serious, some are fun and I hope this list get's you thinking about what you believe in too and I hope the funny ones make you smile. 

Enjoy the short read and if you have some time today or this week, consider creating your own list and have fun with it. Throw in some funny stuff too.
