Bucket list is a fairly new word according to Webster’s Dictionary, coming from the phrase “to kick the bucket”. It is defined as
a list of things that one has not done before but wants to do before dying
I haven’t given much thought to things I want to do before I head to eternity to live with my Savior. Before I was married many years ago my to do list was get married and have kids. I wanted to be a wife and mother and twenty-nine years later I have four beautiful children who are making their own lists. Their adventures and ambitions to live life to the fullest has been my incentive to make a list. My nest will soon be open not empty so it’s time to make another list before my kids have kids of their own when I will love them like I’ve loved my own.
- Get my manuscript published.
- Make more time to write, write.
- Visit major cities with my husband.
- Take a short term missions trip.
- Open a coffee/bakery shop with my daughters.
So excited one of these is in process, hoping sometime this year I can come back to this list and cross off #1.
