This past weekend I spent time with a long time (over 50 years) dear friend. She is dying. She has just made the tortuous decision to stop treatment and let nature take its course. She is starting to make plans for her funeral service. I think she is mostly at peace with her decision.
It may be too late for her to have a Bucket List—all the things you want to do before you die, but it made me think of what I want in my bucket. Most of all, I want time. Time to enjoy life without having to go to work day in and day out. Time to enjoy the grandchildren I hope to have someday. Time to enjoy the family and friends already in my life. Time to dig in my garden. Time to make quilts, and knit, and refinish furniture. Time to travel to unseen places and return to places I already know and enjoy. Time.
What is on your bucket list?
