The List November 25, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — Amanda Lynn @ 2:55 pm

I’m a list maker.

Since probably 2nd or 3rd grade when “jump on the trampoline with Adam” was on the list.

Now a’ days it’s things like “finish project proposal” or “get an oil change”.

Every year on my birthday and at the start of a new year I make a list of goals.

I love lists. I love scratching things off. I love getting it all down on paper so that my head doesn’t pop off. I love categorizing things on the list with astrics for the reeeeally important things.

All of that to say, I’ve had a running list for life. Things I MUST do before Heaven.
