Love this movie-it’s hilarious and thought provoking. Though my bucket list is for when my husband kicks the bucket, which I know is terrible, but that’s how I cope with his continuous unhealthy choices despite his family’s history of strokes and heart attacks. It’s too painful otherwise, so I make jokes saying, “When my hubby kicks the bucket…”. Anyway, when he kicks the bucket, I will get a big fluffy dog, a real Christmas tree for the holidays, and…that’s all I want to share for now.
In the movie, Carter asks Edward to answer these questions, and it got me thinking…
Have you found joy in your life?
Have you brought joy to others?
These two questions are my bucket list for my own life…I want to make sure that I’ve found and brought joy. It’s tough to measure, and a process…
I also view my work with children, families, and colleagues as my legacy, my mark left on the world.
And then there’s my son. I’m the voice in his head, the smile on his face and I’m those rolling eyes!
And of course…this blog. I hope it helps just one person…of course, it has helped me which has made me a better mom, wife, daughter, friend…so I guess I’ve achieved that goal at least!
…I know that when he died, his eyes were closed and his heart was open.
…I’m deeply proud that this man found it worth his while to know me.
