12 Day Meme - Ten things I like about my personality

Awkward....and it shouldn't be.  I like myself.  There are things I would change and things I have been trying to change for years but for the most part, I like who I am.  I am also a proper midwesterner and we don't talk about things like that because it would be bragging and that's not done.  To have to make a list of 10 good things about me is incredibly difficult in light of that.  What if I think I've got a good quality and no one agrees?  Pride goeth before a fall and whatnot.

The thing that cracks me up about this piece of the meme is that it reads like the Girl Scout law.

I will do my best to be
honest and fair,
friendly and helpful,
considerate and caring,
courageous and strong, and
responsible for what I say and do,
and to respect myself and others,
respect authority,
use resources wisely,
make the world a better place, and
be a sister to every Girl Scout.

Also, this day of the meme reminds me of the kid's book, The Tenth Good Thing About Barney.  It's essentially a story to help children deal with the death of a pet.  When they are raising a glass in my memory and telling stories about my life after consigning my body to the deep, I hope the things below make the list.
