Top Twenty: #4-1

Posted: May 5, 2008 in Uncategorized

Wow. Have you ever had a weekend just seize the reins of your life and run willy-nilly all through the town? That was my weekend. I think I’m still twitching a little bit from the whole ordeal.

Okay…so here they are. The last few crumbs of the Top Twenty Things Every Woman Should Know.

#4 How to ask for help: You know, women tend to be reluctant to ask for help when they need it and often will just project frustration instead. This leads me to number 3…

#3 Who to call for help: “Help with what?” you may wonder. Well, with anything. I have go-to people for the Big Issues of Life. They’re like my Big Issue Gurus. For me, these fall into the categories: Spiritual stuff, car stuff, finances, cooking and just good wisdom stuff like “My daughter wants to go cliff jumping with her friends and hasn’t quite mastered staying afloat in the water yet…what should I do?” Those things. Seriously, get to know people who are both smart and wise. People you trust. People who have not made silly mistakes in their lives or – better yet – HAVE made silly mistakes, but have learned from them.

#2 How to balance your checkbook: Really big thing that surprisingly few women know how to do. Slacker alternative: get good at using online banking.

#1 How to pray: See number 3.

And that’s it. The full run down. Did I miss things? Certainly. Are some of them out of order? Absolutely. That’s what makes life fun. It’s always turning and changing and wonderfully textured. This week is looking to be more out-of-control than last week, so I don’t know that I’ll frequent these parts much…but if you think of it please pray for the Revolutionary Parenting Conference this Saturday. It’s gonna be grand!

Loving my Lilac Trees,

  4. bolovesjoe says:

    Corina – yes, but the phone calls lasted until the batteries ran out on my phone, so does that really count as ONE? 🙂
