Can you see me? I'm blushing! Brandi was so kind to think of me when giving out this award! She is so sweet, and I always enjoy reading her blog. You should swing by her place and visit. And please keep her precious dog Carmen in your prayers, too! He has cancer, and she needs all the prayers and good thoughts out there. Having been through this myself (we lost our Booger in 2004 to cancer), I know how heart-wrenching it is.
list 6 things I value and 6 things I don't and then pass this award on to 6 people!

2. my husband and my family
3. my animals...heck, all animals...I love those critters
5. good friends

6 things I don't value (in random order):
