Got a Bucket List?


My bucket list changes with the seasons of time; what I consider important to do or see in one season of my life, changes in another. Funny how life is that way too. Bill and I had a bucket list of memories we wanted to make together. One day it dawned on me that the “list” Bill and I had made didn’t hold meaning without him, and he would want me to come up with a new and different list – something I could look forward to, plan for, and dream of in this season of my life.
It’s not a long list, but it’s a beginning. I’ve reached inside myself and discovered a few things that would make me laugh, challenge me, give me a thrill, and even make a memory. I can hear Bill say, “You can do it… go girl!”
  1. Ride on a motorcycle.
  2. Water ski. (Used to be pretty good, back in the day…)
  3. Go back to New York and see a Broadway play.
  4. Have a girl weekend—with my daughter and daughter-in-law.
  5. Throw a huge gratitude party in honor of all the friends who have breathed life into me through random acts of kindness for the last three years.
If you don’t have a bucket list, maybe you should start one too. I’d love for you to share yours with me. I’ll be the whisper in your ear that says, “You can do it… go girl!”
