  1. Such a wonderful post. Your list is a wonderful reminder of keeping your eye on what is truly important.

  2. I’m in love with this post. You are such a great writer, thinker, inspirer (yes, that’s a word).

    Thank you.

  4. Elizabeth – you are fabulous! How did you know I needed to read those exact words? I think I will print this post and hang it nearby.
