Amazing (there’s that word again, hope I’m not being boring, but it really is) how much easier it is to begin, work on, and finish a job when there are two doing it together who enjoy each other’s company.  Hey Michelle! Look at this picture of you at two!  A deadline is a whole lot of help, too–along with the reminder to myself that this was in celebration that I could DO these things this time this year, when last time around the sun, no way.

But first I had to get past the “Begin: the rest is easy” part.

Michelle really wanted that thing given a makeover, and I looked at her this morning and said: “So does that mean I can’t sing in desk-can’t?”

Oh yeah, “Many hands make light work.” I believe the Amish have it on us with that one.
Go Michelle! May I borrow her for the next few days? 😉

Our youngest arrives later today so my bloggin’ days will be delayed ’til after the new year. For now, I will wish you and yours a lovely holiday season. )

If two heads are better than one, it makes sense that four hands would get more accomplished than two. 😉

In my humble opinion, it’s a lot better to use “amazing” as often as you do than to be taking things for granted and just report on them. You still have the ability to be amazed, which is no surprise with as big a heart as you have: there is lots of room to be amazed with!

You just use whatever superlative you want, as often as you want. The first half of 2009 was a rough one for you and your family, so if you’re finding extra joy in the last few days of the year, share it!
