    ...In your life? Pets? Job? Property, children? Internet trolling? Money?
    I think it might be interesting to see everyone's answers!

    This is by far the most important part of my existence. When I really think about it I may be passionate about things like animals and gardening, but this is the only thing I TRULY give a hoot about.

    Oxygen is at the top of my list of most important things of life, followed close with water in second place and food in third place.

    Fourth on down has various things vying for better rat race position day to day. :)

    Hugs, smiles, love and snuggles combined with the freedom and secure environment in which to enjoy them. Puppies are pretty cool too.

    Most of us personally will not do anything to better mankind. We will not invent, write, or produce something artistically inspiring or start a business that has that effect. However our progeny may. That means children are the most important if you believe in advancing mankind.

    The most important thing in my life at this moment? Humm, guess it would my continued ability to keep my mouth shut. Better to let one think they know then to prove them wrong and up-set the proverbial apple cart. :mad:
    And how's your family???? :cool: :D

    My "Heavenly Father" is first. He granted me the right to come to this earth and be tested so that I might have opportunity to return to his presence.
    Do I always make the correct decisions toward that end? No. But he gives me the right to repent and try again.
    In my opinion, all else comes after.

    I believe it's how we treat/"touch" others on a daily basis is how we "better mankind". One person at a time.
    Unknowingly, we also may be that spark that ignites.

    Family first. Not just immediate family or those with whom I share DNA. My circle of peeps including old dear friends and co workers who have become family. Followed by critters, then money.

    I spent part of the day today in a cemetery, finding graves of mom's mom's side of the family back to before the Civil War.

    id like to think the most important thing in my life is--- "my wish" to help the poor of our world to grow their own food ,even if its only part of their food :) its a great relief to know if your paycheck bounces your foods in the windowbox or back yard still :)

    My Love for Jesus Christ and my relationship for Him is first.
    My wife of 47 years is my second.
    My third is my 5 grand kids.
    My church and my social work.....Soup Kitchen and Gideons Int is next.
    We have 2 dogs, Rusty and Rags who my kids think are ahead of them and they could be right, under certain circumstances;^).
    I don't fish or hunt but I do love to "piddle" on our small farm, Gardening, woodworking, and old tractors take up the rest of my time.
