I've been intrigued by this thread every since it opened. Early on, I quickly clicked on the OP to get the gist and closed it. I wanted to come up with the 6 words on my own and knew I would be influenced by the all the great postings of others. The exercise was only more challenging given I couldn't rely on adjectives. Anyhoooooo, here goes:

Family
Friends
Faith
Community
Commitment
Gratitude

Now I get to go back and read what very one else has written - how fun! I promise not to come back and change my list.
