    Hello, I like the first one. I remember laughing at my best friends dream one time, when I had to try really hard to get him to open up to tell me in the first place. Then I remembered how weird my own dreams were. So now I don’t laugh. I also like #37 and #28 🙂

    wait, wait, wait…one thing you told me that I think of DAILY…”Don’t sweat the small things.” My own personal Steffism?

    • Steffanie says:

      How could I forget that one?? And I can’t take credit for that one. A true genius thought that up long before I told you.

      • Keri says:

        I totally give you the credit. I see your smiling face every time it enters my mind and it has got me through so much.

      • Steffanie says:

        Awwww, thanks baby! Phil has a new one that I really love. “Is the lion fixing to eat me?” Whenever you are feeling stressed and overwhelmed, ask yourself if the lion is fixing to eat you. For example, you just got fired or you totaled your car, yeah, the lion is licking his lips. If you just received word that a loved one has passed away, yeah, the lion just took a bite. We both find that it helps determine if we should really take notice and action or if we should just let it go. You’ll be surprised at what you can and need to let go!
