Sunday Seven #392


What couldn’t you do without? Beyond the obvious choices like water, food, oxygen and other necessities that are so necessary that life literally can’t occur without them?

That’s the list for this week. Are there seven things you can come with that you’d have a hard time doing without? I’ve made my list. I invite you to do the same.

If you choose to answer as well, (and I hope you will), you can either answer with your list in a comment, or, if you’re in need of something to post on your own blog, feel free to post your list there and leave a comment here that links to that post. That way others can see what things you think you couldn’t do without these days.

Here’s mine:

7 Things I Feel I Couldn’t Do Without

1. God

My faith is very important to me and there are times when I feel God’s presence moving in my life. I’d hate to be without that.

2. Family

I’ve always been close to my parents and many of my extended family. I’d hate to lose that connection.

3. Friends

In a handful of cases, there are friends who know me better than my family does. Those are very valuable relationships I treasure.

4. My Dog

I’ve often wondered what it would have been like to witness the first human/canine relationship and the moment at which our ancestors first realized that besides hunting partners, dogs provided a great deal of company, too. I’m just glad they made that discovery; I can’t imagine living life without our four-legged friends.

5. Television

It’s probably not a surprise that I’d mention this one since I work in it, but I do enjoy certain shows, particularly reruns of older shows that were much better produced than a lot of what’s out there today.

6. The Internet

I’m by no means a millennial, but I use the internet today as though I’ve always had it. It’s so easy to learn new things and verify old things that I’d have a hard time suddenly being without it.

7. Humor

They say laughter is the best medicine. They also say laughter extends our lives. I don’t know about the latter, but the former is definitely true.

How about you? Can you name things you couldn’t do without?

Thanks for reading the Sunday Seven and I hope you’ll be back next week!
