Writers Workshop

Option #4
I debated back and forth on the letter to someone I miss, and something that I could do that would be a little more light and fun. The letter would have definitely been to my mom. The past 16 years without her have seen so much joy and sadness, that I would love to write to her. Today though, I just don't have it in me and I went with easy going. The letter though, it may come soon enough.

10 Things I Believe In

1 I believe that there is a right and wrong way to load a dishwasher
2 I believe it is impossible to be too nice
3 I believe you should practice what you preach
4 I believe you should think before you speak
5 I believe all grocery stores should double coupons
6 I believe that things like Christmas, Disney World and birthday parties are truly magical when seen through the eyes of a child. We have not been blessed with children of our own, but had the honor of waking up this past Christmas morning at my brother and sister in laws house with our two nieces. I have always loved Christmas, but it was so fun seeing the excitement on Christmas Eve and joy the next morning.
7 I believe people who enter the 10 items or less line with more than 10 items should have to put back items until they get to ten items.
8 I believe its OK to be 31 and want to sew, bake, and cook on the weekends.
9 I believe life is way too short to live with regret
10 I believe you should always remember to thank people, let them know they are appreciated, and be grateful for the people in your life.

One last thing...I know in my heart that man is good. That what is right will always eventually triumph. And there's purpose and worth to each and every life.
That's one from Ronald Reagan (no political affiliations referenced here, I just really like this quote)

That IS a good quote and I needed it (if you saw my post from a couple days ago you'd know why). I think you and I may have been separated at birth though b/c your list is stuff I would have picked too. :)

#2-3 are guiding points in my life. I need to practice #4 a little more. And you are living proof that #8 is GREAT :)!

i love these workshops--and yours is always the first one I read!

Great beliefs! Why does all the food on your page always look so darn good. It doesn't look like that at my house.

Oh it drives me NUTS when my husband loads the dishwasher! Sometimes I think he does it 'wrong' on purpose so I don't ask him to do it often. HA!

Great list, girl!

Number eight is my favorite...and I'd like to add guilt to that list...

I love your list. SO many of you are making the list & so much of what you share I have to agree with!

7 - I think those who have more than 10 should have to leave - then I don't even have to wait for them. ;) I don't do that & wouldn't ever. I just don't understand why others do.

6 - Christmas is magical! I never thought I'd enjoy it again like I did when I was a kid, but I think I enjoy it more now. It's awesome!

9 - life is too short to live with regret or stay angry about anything. I believe in happiness.

Great list - I could go on, but I won't.
