All That Matters is #100

Browsing the bloggy world today I came across this fun meme at The Mommy Diaries who found it at another site. I thought I would do it and see how many things I could cross off the list as things I have done personally...those are in bold.

So just what is it about #100....Although the other 99 things were experiences that God has allowed me to have they only define me if I choose them to do so. Most certainly I believe that I am completely defined by #100.
I am proud to say I am indeed a child of God. On December 21, 197o, I was baptized in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. On that day, my name was written in the book of heaven.
#100...all that matters.
