Why I Make Lists

When I was first married I noticed my groom always had a list.  It could be anything from jobs he wanted to get done, shopping needs, or vacation wishes.  But I would never make a list.  I thought I could rely on my memory.  And for the most part I could.  But everytime I forgot something, John would always say, "You should have made a list!"

 After four children, and 13 years of marriage, I have finally acknowledged that my brain cannot hold anymore information!  I now find pleasure in my lists.    The best part of my list is it helps me prioritize.  The things I need to get done first are in my line of vision and I don't loose sight of the goal.  And the feeling of accomplishment is amazing when I get to cross something off my list!
