“Sir” and “Ma’am” are not just for occasional usage.
Men hold doors for women/ seniors.
If someone else needs a seat, you give them your seat, and you don’t complain.
“Being a good Samaritan” is not just a saying, its an understood way of life.
"Darling”, “Sweetheart”, “Honey”, and “Dear” are used, for the most part, as endearing expressions.
You can dislike someone as much as you want, but when you see them you act cordially.
When you bump into someone you say “pardon” or “excuse me.”
Waving at people you don’t know or asking how they’re doing is not to be looked down upon.
You can take time to slow down. Slower paced lives are happier lives.
Say “God bless you” when someone sneezes.
When in doubt, be as polite as possible. Only confront others when confronted.
People hug one another, its OK.
If you disagree with something, be polite. “Oh….I see,” or “Oh…thats nice, Darlin” will suffice.
Saying grace at the table, even to yourself, should not be looked upon with disdain.
The only place where cars still stop (even on the highway) for funerals.
ALL people have the ability to behave like Southerners, though not necessarily recreate the accent.

2. You think people who complain about the heat in their states are sissies.
3. A tornado warning siren is your signal to go out in the yard and look for a funnel.
4. You know that the true value of a parking space is not determined bythe distance to the door, but by the availability of shade.
5. Stores don't have bags or shopping carts, they have sacks and buggies.
6. You think everyone from a bigger city has an accent.
7. You measure distance in minutes, not miles.
8. You listen to the weather forecast before picking out an outfit.
9. Someone you know has used a football schedule to plan their wedding date.
10. You aren't surprised to find movie rental, ammunition, beer, and bait all in the same store.
11. You think that Krispy Kreme donuts are the only ones that exist.
12. You actually get these jokes and are "fixin' " to send them to your friends.

Thank you, God, for everything
The big things and the small,
For every good gift comes from God
The giver of them all.
And all too often we accept
Without any thanks or praise
the gift of God send as blessings
Each day in many ways.
And so at this time
We offer up a prayer
To thank you God for giving us
A lot more than our share....
First, thank You for the little things
That often come our way,
The things we take for granted
But don't mention when we pray,
Then, thank you for the miracles
We are much too blind to see,
And give us new awareness
Of our many gifts from Thee,
And help us to remember
That the key to life and living
Is to make each prayer a prayer of thanks
And every day Thanksgiving.

I miss . . . my father. No longer can I pick up the phone to speak with him or travel back to visit him.
I think . . . my husband is the best in all the world!
I love . . . shopping in unique shops/boutiques, not malls (everything seems to be the same).
I know . . . I'm supposed to drive 70mph on the freeway!
I want . . . to leave behind a lasting impression on my family and friends.
I search . . . Google.com for knowledge, answers to questions, curious topics . . .
I wish . . . upon fallen eyelashes I find!
I hate . . . onions and good-byes.
I am scared of . . . rodents of any kind, any critter with a long thin tail.
I fear . . . I could have another mini-stroke or even worse a full blown stroke.
I am always . . . browsing catalogs/magazines/newspapers.
I hear . . . trains running on the track in the distance.
I don't always . . . answer phone calls, return e-mails, answer the door, etc . . .
I wonder . . . what the future holds, guess I'll have to wait to find out.
I care . . . too much about strangers. If I see an ambulance or a stranded vehicle, I pray for 'em.
I regret . . . don't even get me started, there is always something I could have done better: raising my sons, being a daughter, ... Or something I should have done: made a call, wrote a note, visited, ...
I believe . . . the bible is the inspired word of God.
I danced . . . the night away at my son Jordache & Sabrina's wedding!
I write . . . whatever pops into my head, dangerous, huh?
I win . . . something occasionally when playing Bunko!
I lose . . . everthing - battles, my mind, eyeglasses, keys, remote controls, self-control, . . .
I never . . . refuse dessert when it's offered, thus my size!
I listen . . . to my playlist selections (they're on my blog). It's quite a mix of music styles.
I can be found . . . sitting at the computer making graphic designs, posting a blog, checking e-mail, and reading facebook entries.
