My friend N made me dinner last night. As we sat down to eat, she lit candles on the table.
"I believe in candles on the table," she said.
I got that. I started to think about all the things I'd list after "I believe."
I believe in Sunday Night Dinners, roadtrips with the top down and late night porch talk. I believe in keeping secrets in the vault. I believe that what goes around really does come around. I believe that if you work hard enough, you'll get where you want to be. I believe in thinking big. I believe in the law of attraction. I believe in real food and good sheets. I believe in watching sunsets. I believe in smiling at strangers. I believe that stopping to chat with an elderly person is one of the most valuable things I can do.
I could go on forever.
But what about you. How would you fill in the blank?
