A List for All Times

A list for all times. Titled "Counseling Notes." On the counter of the kitchen was this list. This list was put together by my daughter. I unsure who the counselor is except the counselor at school, although these look like a list I prepared for her about a year ago in the form of affirmations.

I will find out about this list and how did she come up with such a beautiful things. It's a list for all, young and old, home or at work.

Here it is, in it's entirety, as it was handwritten.

A great list - we all need to be reminded of these things from time to time! Great that your daughter wrote these...and it's a credit to you as well!

Aw! Joe, I was moved that you thought to share this. The little list gives a peek into her psyche and is a reminder that kids really do take on a lot at home. It's clear that she understands what the word responsibility means -- that's more than we can say for some adults!
