A list.

1.  Lost my child today.  Yes, I was with him.  Let's just say he arrived via golf cart.  More to come on this later.

2.  Cakes baked, not decorated.

3.  House needing to be cleaned.

4.  Dinner to take to friends.

5.  I am listening to my soon to be 5 year old count- he's on 45 right now.  He's supposed to be asleep, but how precious is that?  

6.  I am taking time to slow down a bit.  Thankful the party isn't until 3 tomorrow and enjoy serving my family.  It is too easy to become resentful of our duties (service opportunities) as a mom.  So, I am choosing this minute to embrace them and do all that needs to get done with a cheerful heart.  It is about the heart isn't it?  So, even if I check off my to do list and I do it with grumpy pants on-what does that make me?  Answer: A grumpy list checker.   I think I'll opt for the happy heart and get done all that I can and what is undone will be there tomorrow.

Amen, Andi. It's better to be a half-done happy list doer than a fully done grumpy list doer. Hope you have a grand party. Wow...your 5 year old counting to 45. I don't believe my soon to be 8 year old neice can count that high. He must have one smart momma who's teaching him. :-)
