    All of the Little, Simple Things.

    And it isn't a whole lot, either.  But, you know, I think it's a lot more than many people do have, so I'm looking at the glass as being half-full.  Bashing myself for what isn't right or what's missing never helped me in the past.  Rarely has being hard on myself...
