I like my lists. I know you know. When I just need to get something (anything) down, lists are how I fill my page. Yes, the to-do lists (there’s always a current to-do list). But the other lists. The ones for gratitude, the ones for right now, the ones for dreams. I like the way lists tell a story.
If I write a list of five things for my Tuesday morning, here’s what comes to mind:
- a sunny and cool autumn walk with my favorite girl and our pup
- gratitude for being home this morning
- a hot cup of tea and then toast for me and waffles for the kids
- reading with the kids and the discussion that ensued
- tissues and tea and a longing to lay down (I’ve got a cold ;)
It’s simple, this list. But it captures the morning perfectly for me. It’s a little story for this Tuesday. My story.
And now the giveaway part…I’ve got an upcoming run of Just Five Things starting in November and I’d like to invite you to join me. You can read full details about the class by clicking here (dates for the class are November 7 – November 20).
In order to celebrate the opening of registration, I’m hosting a giveaway this week. Hooray! Two spots in the class. To enter the giveaway, share a few things you might list for your day. You don’t have to write five. You could write one. Or ten. As you wish.
Comments will close Sunday, October 9 at midnight PST. I’ll announce the winners back here, in this post, on Monday. Comments are now closed. The two winners, selected at random are: Heidi Johnson and Betty Tusing. Congrats, ladies + I’ll be sending you an email shortly!
Thanks to all of you who played along. I enjoyed reading what each of you shared; so many things listed brought a smile to my face. (And if you didn’t win…and, really, I wish you could all win…send me an email reminding me that you played along in the giveaway and I’ll send you a discount code to use for class registration). xo
I can’t wait to read your
Sending a little love your way, m
