#5 - Beans - I've got a pot of homemade beans on the stove right now for a family dinner. They're a staple.
#4 - Dead Mosquito - I know this is kinda sick, but I can't stand these little buggers. I was welcomed by them as soon as I got to the Midwest. Bangladesh and Nigeria both have them pretty bad. They're my lot in life.
#3 - Roses - This year was the first anniversary in 29 years that Mama and Daddy were away from each other, but Mama still got her roses. Daddy's the man.
#1 - Family - I love being back with my family for a short time. They are the best (even when my brother squeezes my hand until I say uncle).
