The five most important words: “You did a good job.”

The four most important words: “What do you think?”

The three most important words: “You go first.”

  1. Beautiful.

  2. You changed your look again! Fun…isn’t it. A lot cheaper than a day at the beauty parlor.

    • Yes! I’ve been bored & goofing around with the layout. The problem is that I didn’t think to write down the names of the ones I liked … so I’ve been playing here & there :). Thanks for noticing! MJ

  3. Brilliant, MJ! I completely agree.

  4. I am not sure which is better – the list or the photograph.

  5. great list…although for the three word item “I was wrong” ranks high…

    • I completely agree, Coop .. although I think the first one “sort of” captures it … But I didn’t write this. Personally I think “I was wrong” is just as important as “I love you.”


  6. Love this! What a nice synopsis of important words! Thanks for sharing. I collect quotes I like, and this will definitely go into the collection.
