    I love this idea. It’s hard not to be encouraged when you can look back on all the wonderful blessing just in the past month. I’m thinking of doing this for May. Thanks for the inspiration.

    From Marlena:

    This IS a great idea. I think I’ll give it a shot for May. And I am very happy to be a part of #16.

    P.S. If you want to finish your desk before baby Meredith makes her grand entrance, just let me know. OR if you need / want help with her room too.

    This is such a wonderful idea! I usually list some good things in my life on a weekly basis, but I like the idea of one per day.

    This is a really cute idea – just a simple, easy way to sort of take a positive stock in the day to day. I might have to nab it! :)
