If I were to sit down and write down all the things I have to do in the next week or so--even just the next 48 hours--I'm sure it would end in chocolate and tears. Which may or may not be a bad thing. So I'm not going to bother with making a to do list. And if I start to feel down, I'll just take a moment or two to count my blessings. After reading This World We Live In by Susan Beth Pfeffer, I have no reason to stress. I'd take my life over Miranda's any day!
