You know, I love all of your reasons, but I especially love #50. Chosen. That speaks volumes. To be chosen is to be singled out and to be designated, which is special in any aspect. To be chosen seems to give purpose, if you will. Chosen to be you; chosen for your family and chosen to mother your sweet babies; chosen for your soulmate; chosen and eternally inscribed in the Lamb's Book of Life. How nice it is to be "chosen." I love it.

Proudly, your "chosen" blog friend,
