And thanks also to Group Beyond Blue member Plaidypus for this charming entry, which can be found on the “This I Believe” thread at Group Beyond Blue at Beliefnet Community.

I believe that I am a person of worth.. created by God…to love and enjoy life… and Him..

I believe that all people have value, regardless of mental or physical capacities…

I believe that the Brady girls must have had another closet .. becasue there is no way that 3 girls could share a small closet like that…

I believe that if you don’t succeed at first keep trying.. and that faliure teaches us about success…

I believe that laughter is the best medicine…

I believe that the best revenge against your enemies is to dress better than them…

I believe that God has a sense of humor.

I belive that A & W root beer is the best root beer.

I believe that if we could harness the energy of Libby ( my daughter) we would have so much excess… we’d be selling it to the Saudi’s…

I believe that there is only one holiday fruitcake…it just get’s passed to people…

I believe that egg plant, is one vegetable that shouldn’t be eaten…

I believe that chocolate is a food group and must be consumed at least once a day…

I belive in the trinity… and the Bible…

I believe that overweight women shouldn’t wear a see-through skirt without the proper undergarment… as those looking will be severly tramatized…

I belive that children are God’s blessings… and are to be treasured…

I belive that you are never to old to play or have toys….

I believe that Pixe the cat is the best cat around… and the cutest…

I believe that God hears my prayers…and cares…

I believe in forgiveness, and change and hope…

I believe that the Patirots.. are one of the best foot ball teams ever…

Wonderful post Therese and Plaidypus–thought-provoking and funny at the same time. I agree with so many of the statements–like the Patriots and the eggplant, which is the worst veggie out there (my apologies to anyone who loves eggplant and is reading this).

Plaidypus… I loved your entire piece (even the eggplant part and I love eggplant!!). It is always great to read/hear something that makes you both think and laugh.

Plaidypus…I loved your piece as well, even though you haven’t had the deep fried egglplant at Balistreri’s.
As for the Patriots, sorry, I’m a Packers fan, although I wish the best for Brett Favre and would like to see him play for another team if he can’t work it out with the Packers (except the Bears or Vikings).
I actually laughed out loud, and thank you, Therese, for posting this.
