Some people love to ask the question, “Do you feel any older?” Well, I guess I would have to answer no more then on any other given day. I started to think about this year. I belong to an online pediatric brain tumor group, and very sadly death is a topic that comes up. Families sometimes have to face treatment options that run out and then they have to face quality of life till the end. One of the Dad’s quoted William Wallace character in the movie portrayal Braveheart; “Every man dies, not every man really lives.”
Once again the old wheels in my brain started turning… I want us to be purposeful about our lives and really live. I decided as I am now 37 I would make a list of 37 things I want to accomplish before next year.
7. Make a quilt
All I have to say is I am glad I am 37 and not 73. It was not easy coming up with 37 things. Some will be much easier than others. Some will require constant attention. Some may depend a bit on finances to accomplish. It may be lofty but some of these things I have been talking about for years so maybe it is high time I attack some of these things. Honestly the only way I see myself failing would be not to do any of them (then I’d have a nameless child)… but if I can accomplish a few then I am already succeeding and if I start the path and improve some of these areas even better and if I accomplish them all well WOW! I’ll keep you posted and I promise I have no new lists planned for the immediate future yet I reserve the right to throw the odd one in here and there!!!
