HMMM...It's The End of the Year and Time for my Annual LAUNDRY LIST!!

Well, dear friends, as 2009 comes to a close; I find myself making my LAUNDRY LIST. In case you don't know what that is -- to some it is called taking a personal inventory.  Perhaps, many of you out there do the same.

On MY LIST are things like:

Was I empathetic when the situation presented itself?

Was I compassionate?

Was I controlling?

Was I critical?

Did I complain too much?  I CALL THESE MY 4 "C's".

Did I hold my tongue when it was called for?

Was I truly present in my life every moment?

Was I as loving as I  could be?

And last, but not least:  WAS I GRATEFUL?

I had a friend who used to say that every donut has a hole.  I want to be as grateful for the hole as for the donut.

Cicero said," Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues...but the parent of all others".

Now that 2009 is almost complete, I  can begin on my list for 2010!!  Gads!!!!

Blessings in the New Year to you all,



  1. I get the feeling you accomplish all of these things on a regular basis.

  2. I think you did very fine last year. Wish you a happy 2010. @nne

  3. I think I'd better grab your list!!

    happy new year

  4. Great list. The "4 "C's" I think I will have to remember that~

    Have a blessed New Year~

  5. Found you as I was strolling though blogland. The name of your blog caught my eye and my ♥. I'll be back for sure. Lovely blog, just enchanting.

  6. Hmmm, sure gives us pause for thoughts of our own lives.
    Thanks for posting.

  7. I'm thinkin I'd better make a list myself. Sort of take stock as to where I've been and where I'm going and how will I treat others along the way.

    Happy New Year, may it be wonderful and blessed.

  8. Ouch!
    Well said and certainly some things i should be asking myself.
    just not sure i will like the answers.

Mother's Day is always a bittersweet day for me.  I lost my own beautiful mother many, many years ago and miss her still. How...
