There are a lot of “bucket lists” circulating lately. While I find the lists interesting, the term is a little too, well—terminal. So I have decided to make a “life list” instead. Inspired by a list I found that Nora Ephron made of things she will miss (RIP Nora), I thought I should think about the things I still want to accomplish and enjoy.
Some of Nora’s list took in things that mine will not, as she was a bit more sophisticated than I. A few of my favourite things mirror some of hers: Thanksgiving dinner, Christmas trees, Fall, reading in bed, bacon, our kids, a walk in the park, and the idea of a walk in the park.
In no particular order, here are a few things on my “life list”:
Seeing my first book published, then my second,…then…..
Celebrating my 50th Anniversary in twenty years.
Organizing a yearly family reunion
Being so organized that I won’t know what to do with myself.
Being a help and not a hindrance.
