I really like them. Lists, that is. I have all kinds of lists. I have lists of things I like to do, and lists of books, and lists of things I want to teach future children, and lists of things to do, and lists of words I like, and lists of things in my hope chest and lists of... tons of other things.
Even a list of things I'm looking for... in a husband.
Which is a very accepted and encouraged practice in many of the books I've read... And, I thought, a good idea.
I also kind of had a vague idea that I also ought to make a list of the sort of wife a husband like that would be looking for... but never really got around to it. Didn't give it that much thought... My husband list, on the other hand, is all typed out, and even has a few versions.
Why on earth am I telling you this?? Well, because I watched this video. (That means, please go watch it yourself, otherwise you'll think I'm just babbling or something. :D)
After watching that, my focus has changed somewhat. :) I still think it's a good idea to have a list of things that you're looking for, but instead of focusing on the kind of husband (or wife) we would like to have, we really ought to focus on what kind of a wife (or husband) they'd like to have, and work on becoming that person.
