Do Before Picking Up

 I Will Do These Things 

BEFORE Picking Up Sugar, Flour and Quantities!

[Helps are not listed in order of importance, 

depending on my need I choose one, several or all before  I pick up.]

                 Keep coming back, it works if you work it.  

Give it a lot of love and don't pick up no matter what! 

Yea, Boundaries!
