that's amore monday

next week will be something picture-ful & dainty i promise -- a 'love' that is filled with pretties for your enjoyment & inspiration.  today for that's amore monday however i'm going to honor something a little more intangible.  today i honor...the sense of accomplishment.  you know i love organization, planners & to-do lists but more than just having them i LOVE to check things off of them.  i love knowing that you set out to do something & followed through.  you know that it is complete. fulfilled. satisfied. accomplished. mmm what a fantastic feeling.  and what's great about the sense of accomplishment is that you can feel it over small, even trivial tasks.  i cleaned our shower yesterday.  important?  not really.  did i get a bundle or gratification out of it?  heck yes!

don't get me wrong...i know that i can accomplish nothing apart from our good God who provides so much for us but you know where i'm coming from.  with so many projects going on at the brzinski home, places to go & things to do... i hope that we will have this 'sense' many times over.  sometimes my evil laziness creeps in & tells me that i don't really want to do what i do want to do, during those times i just have to keep reminding myself how glorious it will feel to check that chore, task, errand or visit off my list.

i hope you get to gettin' this week & get all kinds of things accomplished that make your heart sing.  i know i'm going to try while vigilantly attempting to keep my plans in their rightful place...under HIS plans {they're always better}.

jeremiah 29:11
"for I know the plans i have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."


  1. Love it! Nothing gives me greater satisfaction than checking something off my list.Especially if that list is on paper :).

  2. Great post!! I've been working on my list for the past two days, and it makes me feel so much better when I can cross items off! :)
