Reader you must know if I didn’t have the incentive to share this on my blog, I’d never have treated myself to this planning help…I’m such a “Nelly, Needs to Help Someone Else, To Help Myself!~” We each have a motivating need, to get us going “Keep it Simple Sally; Needs to be Organized Wilma, Needs to Have a little Fun Forenza!~ Ida Needs to be Inspired…and my need to help someone else too, is helpful for me but I hope its not annoying to you. Bless you for being gracious, but I suppose that is what the blogging role can be filled with, so its not too uncommon for everybody sharing this and sharing that! But thats my motivation behind it, now you know the truth.
