A Dozen Simple Truths Learned

If you're not sure about a person, watch your dog's reaction to them.

Fresh fruit and vegetables -- REALLY fresh -- are the best.
      (Otherwise, don't bother, unless they're on sale.)

Pick up twelve things a day.
(You'll be amazed at how much tidier it looks in just a short time.)


Always keep an emergency twenty in your wallet. 


Keep a list. Do at least one thing a day from it.


You can best trust the friend who stuck with you in hard times. 
(Make sure you're the kind of friend who reciprocates!)


The honest opinions of said friend are worth more than diamonds. 

If you give your word - you keep it. No matter what.   (My dad was a stickler for this. It also meant you don't give your word lightly!)


Cook with butter.
(It's not that many extra calories, and you can tell the difference.)


Buy a higher grade of coffee and tea. You won't regret it.


Spend at least a few minutes a day digging in the dirt, or sitting in the sunshine.

God can be trusted -- in every situation, every day, no matter what. 


Trent over at the Simple Dollar has a whole list of these: my favorite, though, is this one:

    People don't want to hang out with you because of what you have -- they want to hang out with you because of who you are. 
    Except for teenagers, maybe!
