The List….

My friend Bridget wrote about list making today. I love to make lists, too. I have one this morning for errands P and I are suppose to run later today.

She tells a wonderful story of how her daughter wrote a list of things she is good at. It inspired Bridget to make a list of her strengths. (which is hard for us to do as adults!)

Thanks to Bridget’s encouragement, I’ve made my own list.

Here it is:
*Top three are stolen from Lydia’s list

Eating
Sleeping
Living

Laughing
Cooking
Giving hugs
Smiling
Listening
Reading books
Preaching
Meeting new people
Dreaming
Sitting outside
Singing silly songs
Loving
Encouraging
Volunteering
Parenting
Exercising
Planning
Snuggling

It’s hard to write down my strengths. I kept wanting to write justifications or think of judgements (“well, except”… ¬†or “only if..”) Every time this would happen, I’d say to myself, “Stop. Just write the list. Embrace it.”

What’s on your list? Comment below or post it on your own blog. Go… write your list!
