My Bucket List

At first when I looked up exactly what "bucket list" referred to (I mean, I knew it was a "goal" list), I was pretty freaked out. It comes from the English idiom "to die." So I was like, ewwww! I think I'll call it something else. But then I read further that the American idiom, and it's more like "kick the bucket," therefore, a list of things to do before you kick the bucket. (Yes, I'm always like this.)

So....without further ado, here is my bucket list:

1. To see my son know and love God.

2. To not just write, but publish, a book about my life with Myasthenia Gravis.

3. To see all of the continental United States.

4. To learn how to play the banjo. Well.

5. To adopt at least one child.

6. To homeschool my son through high school by age 16 (he's a genuis : )

7. To live in Colorado some day.

8. To learn sign language.

9. To learn Spanish (again) as I teach it to Jacob.

10. To earn a second Bachelor's or get a Master's in Theology or English.

How about you? What is ONE thing on your list?
Happy Monday!

I love your list. My one thing would be to see my son grow into a man before I kick the bucket. I hate the thought of not being around for him when he needs me.

Great list! I'd buy a copy of your book. I'd like to write a book about the stories my grandmother told me about her childhood.

I think having hosted a Spanish Exchange Student this year, I'd love to visit Spain and see his family and him in his own environment is on my "bucket list."

Fortunately all my children have made professions of faith and I feel they have a good foundation upon which to grow.

That's one great list! Oh dear, it will take me a while to come up with something worthwhile...
