Making a list, checking it twice

This is my great-niece, she's six now and we call her "KK".  Resplendent in her pilgrim attire, KK shared with me her check lists at our family's recent Thanksgiving gala.

KK generously crafted this list for "Nonnie", her grandmother, to keep Nonnie on track. I appreciate KK's fine attention to detail.

But I like this list the best. I'm enchanted by her hieroglyphics accompanying each task. But most of all I love her reminder to herself to "go to sleep", "have sweet dreams", and "wake up".

In fact, this reminds me of another wonderful book illustrated by the aforementioned talented Melissa Sweet called:
Click me!

But as we consider all kinds of lists this holiday, I think one of the most meaningful is a gratitude list. I'm grateful for YOU Dear Reader. I hope 2014 is filled with sweet dreams and happy wake-ups for you. 

I have little friend named Hermux who also keeps a gratitude list. We'll talk about his next.

Happy Holidays and 1 trillion hugs and kisses- Miss Kitty.
