My Bucket List

My Bucket List

I’ve been working on my bucket list for a few years now. It’s not terribly exciting. I’m not young any more. It keeps changing…like celebrating my mother’s 100th birthday. She died last August at 99 1/2 years. A couple of days before she died she told me she didn’t think she was going to make it to 100! I assured her it was okay. But here it is today and I just deleted that date. I may add a few more hopes as time goes by. I must also say that I had many adventures before I even thought of a bucket list so they’re not even mentioned here.
