I listen to the gentle murmuring voice
Of our city, awake despite the hour
And I linger, unwilling to return
To the television world inside — droolingmonkey

My own Bucket List


I went and saw the Bucket List last week and its a wonderful,funny,poignant story of 2 men (Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman)who,after finding themselves with cancer decide to make a list of all the things they want to do before they die.
Its a beautiful movie and I loved it.
While it reminded me that I must always live each and every day as if its the last,it also made me think about what I would put on my own bucket list.
I want to travel more and see things Ive only read about..
I want to make others smile and give some kindness every day.
I want to see my grandson grow into a good kind man,achieving his highest potential.
I want to see my son finish his new degree and find a job that satisfies him.
I want to ride,ride ride!!
And when I lay my head down for my final time,Iwant to be remembered as someone who loved and was loved.

It truly was some time to pause for thought wasn't it? Now, you have read mine, but I would like to add that I hope to make a difference, a true difference in the life of someone who needs me.

Kudos, my friend

OMG, you made me cry but in a good way. Yes, I'll be able to say that too; we are lucky women. :)
