The Bucket List

Okay, time for some group participation on this blog. I recently saw the movie The Bucket List. It's about a couple of guys who discover they have terminal illnesses. They end up making a list of things they want to do before they 'kick the bucket' and then they set about doing the things on the list. So I want to know...what's on your bucket list? What do you want to do before you die?
Having a dream is one thing. Sharing it is another. Please consider sharing your dreams and goals on this blog. Who knows...maybe you will inspire someone to pause and do the same...and
ultimately maybe you will inspire yourself to achieve the goals you have written down! Some maybe deep and take a huge commitment. Some maybe spiritual. Others might be just something fun you've always wanted to try or somewhere you want to visit. There are no right or wrong answers. The more participation I get the better. After all I need amusement. I live in Bolivia for pity's sake.
Don't wait. Make and share your list now. I've had way too many friends pass on to the next life at too young of an age. In fact a few years back Joe and I had decided to take a cruise for our 20th wedding anniversary. Well during our 18th year of marriage we had three very good friends die. We decided, why wait? Let's go now. So we went for a cruise on our 18th wedding anniversary. It was so fun we went again on our 20th and our 23rd too. :>) Why not start working on accomplishing your bucket list now?

Just post it as a comment or send it to me by email if you'd rather. (denise.holman@sim.org) Thanks in advance for sharing and entertaining me.

hmmm...I'm going to have to ponder this Denise...Oddly enough, it seems to be simple things. I really want to see Monticello. I want to walk through Boston and Philadelphia on historical walking tours with someone who would enjoy it in the same manner. My family simply does things like that to humor me and then I feel rushed because I know none of them have the same interest...
But there must be more.....

So sorry your pregnancies seem to fill many days with morning sickness all day long:) ) but you're absolutely wonderful how you project such happiness and grace in spite of that nauseasness...God Bless you Denise! You are an inspiration and Christ shines through you:)

My "bucket list":
1. Witness more
2. See a game @ Fenway.
3. Spend extended time on the beach in Hawaii with Larry and the kids.
4. Hold grandkids (no, none on the way yet, but hopefully in the next 5-10 years at least!)
That's it for now; I'm sure I'll come up with something else!
Thanks for doing this!
Praying for you all daily!
Kathy

As soon as I saw the preview for this movie I wanted to see it, b/c about six years ago I created a "30 by 30 list." Now that 30 is so very few months away, and I still have some things to cross, I've decided to make it a 40x40 and give myself an additional 10 years to do the rest :)
Parasailing was the most recent thing I crossed off it! AMAZING!
Love to you :)
