what do you want to do before you die

have you ever seen the buried life on mtv?
if you haven't its a story of a group of boys who travel the states in a purple bus crossing off the top 100 things off of their bucket list. everytime they cross something off their list... the help another random stranger cross something off of their list...


i have seen them... help deliver a baby, ask out the girl of their dreams, make a toast at a strangers wedding...
and they have help strangers by...helping a dad find his long lost son, help a teacher help his school get their first working computer

it got me to thinking...
what do you want to do before you die..

honestly..
my #1 would be.. to watch my children go through life without having to worry about "can we afford it"... life has been so full of ups and downs.. and we find ourselves every day saying "hunnie... we can't.. we don't have the money" and this is very honest and raw..."babe, im sorry we cannot go to so and so's bday party bc we can't buy a present"... i cannot see us changing that phrase in a long time... and the day my kids never have to worry about any of that.. is a day where i feel like i can breathe.. and maybe go onto the next item on my bucket list.. but until then.. i strive to cross that off...


SOOOOOO what do you want to do before you die?!?!

Interesting... I had seen that show on MTV before, but never stopped to figure out what it was about. I just might have to watch it now... geez, thanks for adding to my TV addiction, Sam! Lol...

Interesting post... I have to share a story with you. My mom used to tell me stories about when she was little her family was so poor that her mother would send her to birthday parties with a few yards of fabric to give to her friends for their birthday presents (so the mothers could make their children something to wear with it). She said she was horrified and embarrassed by it and never wanted her own children to go through that same thing and we always had just what we needed (maybe not everything we wanted, but enough to be happy). I think recognizing what you want to change is the first step to doing something about it. So, keep your head up and work towards your goal and you can absolutely make it! You truly are such a wonderful and caring woman (which is very evident by your #1 thing you want to do before you die ;).
