Generations: What is one thing you couldn’t live without and why?

OutreachNC asked adults and children our January question. Share your answer on our Facebook page.

My dog. She’s my best friend. She’s always happy to see me.  – Bobby, 12

Coffee. I think it’s in everyone’s best interest we keep up that relationship. – Amy, 44

Football. I’m the only girl on the team, but that’s okay. I love it. – Kate, 7

People. They give me energy. And if people aren’t considered ‘things,’ then plants because they need me. – Bobbie, 71

Books. Even when the Internet goes out, I have my books. – Isabel, 14

My man cave. I get some peace and quiet and nobody says anything about watching car repair shows. – Bob, 67

Pens. They allow me to learn and draw. – Maggie, 14

Yoga. It keeps me calm and happy. I wish I’d known about it when I was a younger woman, especially when I was parenting and had kids in the house. I could have saved us all a lot of tense moments. – Kathy, 72

My cat. She is easy to care for but seems to know exactly when I need her to come out from her hiding spot and sit on my lap. It’s a comfort. – Jean, 62

The tree in my backyard, but I can’t tell you why. – Sean, 7

My church family. They’re there whenever I need help and when I don’t need help. They’re just there, for the good and the bad. – Jim, 73
