My good friend Mary Beth's daughter is getting married next weekend. For months Mary Beth has been spending every waking hour working and planning and pondering the big event.
This morning she came to my desk and said that now...a week away from the wedding...her husband has begun to join in the fretting and had a suggestion for her. Last night he told her that she should maybe...make a list.
Make a list.
Mary Beth has spreadsheets and charts and graphs and lists that help her to keep track of her lists. God bless you, Mr. Mary Beth. It's comforting to know that if you're ever in charge of planning a wedding, that seven days before the wedding, you will make a list.
