To Do or To Don’t

Who has a daily “TO DO” List?

I worked for a very strong business woman for 8 years who insisted and practiced a daily “TO DO” list. She is very successful and I learned many things from her.

I have not practiced having a list recently and I feel a little scattered. I love check lists. I love to feel accomplished. Sometimes seeing a list on paper with items crossed off makes me smile.

Today is Thursday. I am blessed to have a part time job that takes me away from home Monday – Wednesday. Thursdays are my days, usually. My favorite things include home, working at home, hanging out in the carport working on something, having on paint splattered clothes. Well you get the idea.

I have a list today. It might be a little ridiculous, but I have a list.

  1. Stay in PJ’s until 9:00am 
  2. Watch the Summer episode of Gilmore girls on Netflix
  3. Write a blog post
  4. Figure out a snack to take to small group tonight
  5. Finish my project involving cow print material.
  6. Paint the bed in Naked Girls Room.
  7. Sew curtains
  8. Small Group
  9. See my husband for the first time since Monday.
  10. Sleep like a baby

What I didn’t include on my list was

  1. Love on my family.
  2. Be an encouragement. Even if it’s to one person today.
  3. Be a glass half full kind of girl
  4. Don’t be snippy or over sassy. (This is a hard one)
  5. Have people wonder what I have that they want. Jesus friends, just Jesus.

I will start #2 with you.

If you read about my life on this blog, thank you. I started this blog so that my family and friends, near and far could follow along with the old house renovation.

It has become so much more.  Sometimes it’s silly, sometimes it’s thought provoking, but I hope it always to be encouraging. I want others to know that you do not have to have a lot of money to create beauty in your homes. Believe me, the cash doesn’t grow from trees around here. You only need an imagination and the “want to.”

I want the blog to show love and compassion, empathy and understanding. We are in this life together. Sometimes, a lot of times it SUCKS!!!!! But most of the time it’s wonderful. Full of amazing family and people. People that I may not ever get to meet. I have had blog readers from other countries and that still amazes me.

So on this Thursday, don’t forget to smile. Today might be the day that is not great. However, tomorrow will come. I pray for my readers. I don’t know who you are, but Jesus does. He loves us, one and all.
