A Bucket List
My Bucket list
your fingerprints never fade from the lives you touch
I realized (not too long ago) that we cannot take anything with us when it’s our time to go to eternal sleep. the only thing we can take with us is our memories, our love, and our experiences. Do things, if you have been in one place all your life, now is the time to venture out. After all you can be sorry about the things you did not do in your life at the end of it, but if you have time, do stuff, now.
I have, during the course of the last 5 years undergone dramatic surgery for various ailments relating to my left shoulder, arm and my neck. These operations also included two operations (the first failed) to give me my voice back (I got a super bug in the hospital and lost my voice for 4 months due to paralyzed central nerve).
So one of the things on my bucket list cannot be sing to my favorite song, because I can only do the base voices while my daughters angel’s voice soars for both of us.
Yes, I am only 42 at the moment, but after spending months on the mend, just to have another and another operation with the subsequent mending time, rehabilitation, and trying to keep my business afloat, and raise my two kids a person starts to get their priorities straight.
So I decided to create a Bucket List, of all the things I want to see, experience or do before I leave this world:
