The ten things I know to be absolutely certain have changed over the years. The current list:
1. My dog loves me, unconditionally.
2. My parents love me.
3. My husband loves me and is a very good person.
4. The moon affects the tides.
5. The beach speaks to me in a way that no other place ever will.
6. Some people will always have their kooky thoughts, and there is nothing I can do to change that.
7. Some people will always be nasty to other people to get ahead in their own lives, and there is nothing I personally can do to change that on my own, although as a group, if we banded together, it could be changed.
8. The stock market will go up and down.
9. Recycling is a good thing to do for the planet.
10. Most caring people will always like handmade gifts.
