From the time I was able to put pencil to paper, I’ve been a list-maker; in fact, I’ve been known to make lists of lists I need to create! As a result, I’m excited to participate this year in Moorea Seal’s 52 Lists Project; look for my list every Monday.

List 18: List the things that motivate you.

1. Love for my children

2. Fear — healthy fear

3. My faith

4. Love for learning and knowledge

5. A desire to have a cozy, comfortable, simple home

6. A desire to travel, to see different places

7. The need for companionship/friendship
