Life...It makes you think!

Life is full of surprises, good and bad. I prefer the good surprises but only some can be so lucky. This past week, life definitely surprised me....and a couple of my friends, too. I'm a part of a playgroup where I live and the moms range anywhere from 21 years old to 38. Yesterday morning, we all recieved the news that one of the moms had suffered a heart attack and was in the hospital on a breathing tube. This woman, who turned 28 today, is a mother of three young children. It was an event that made us all think, She's so young and has so much life left. It definitely made me think, more about what happened if that was me. Have I lived my life to the fullest, of course not. Would I have died happy, most definitely. But there's so many things I want to do before I die.
A movie came out with Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson a couple years ago called The Bucket List. It was a film about two men who write a list of things they want to do before they "kick the bucket". I think my list is fairly decent and within reach. Some may seem average and some may seem over the top. Others may seem as if they don't even belong on the list, but realistically it's everything I want to accomplish.


  1. Purchase a House
  2. Complete our Family
  3. Pay Off Debt
  4. Go Skydiving
  5. Go back to Australia
  6. Go Back to Europe
  7. Go away with my husband to Fiji & stay in a room with a glass floor
  8. Have one professional photography shoot or sell my photos of nature
  9. Run a marathon
  10. Lose some money in Vegas...not alot, just some!

    This is just a rough draft. I have lots more to add, but so little time. I'll be back to add more and to check items off that have been completed. So stay tuned!

    ***As of this morning, the mom who had the heart attack was aware of her surroundings and alert...squeezing hands when asked. They were to take her off the ventilator tonight or tomorrow. No other news as of 11pm est 11-19*** Please keep her and her family in your prayers.***The mother is doing well, sees lots of doctor's now to try and avoid the same situation in the future. Please continue to pray for her!***
