I love the list! You're very creative.

And I hope I'm not reading too much into - what I see as - descending order within each letter. Only brother and sister were second to Bible and salvation. Nice touch!

Hope you enjoy your week. Tell your in-laws I said "hi!" (Not sure I remembered to tell you that in all the whirlwind transfers yesterday!)

I agree with your mother! Great list! I think I will "steal" your idea and put my own list on my blog! Hope you and your famil(ies) have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
