A few of my favorite things....

I LOVE to make lists!  I am sure it has to do with being a little type A and needing some control.  Is there such thing as "a little" type A.  I really never thought I was but my family reminds me of when I was little (ok I have used that word 3x's now) and I would constantly ask what we were going to do and where we were going.  I had to know the plan for the day.  Yes...my way of feeling in control.  I look forward to vacation time......when life slows down and the kids are home from school.  However...I am so much more productive when I am on a schedule.....so there...I admit that lists, schedules and a PLAN is what makes me feel safe.  I know there is a saying that if you make a plan......God may just change it....because he is in control...not me. That is why my BFF and I always say......GOD WILLING we will do this or that.  We have learned over the years that making plans are ok...but we must realize they could change and we need to submit.  Thankfully I surrender to that realization most days but it is a weakness of mine.  Well....now that I have explained my need to make lists.....I will share what I love...not in any order...just what comes to my mind as I write.  Hopefully someone will share a few of their favorites, too.
