Thursday 13 – My Bucket List

I was very moved yesterday with news about baby Avery and her parents’ very inspiring Bucket List. Avery was born with SMA – Spinal Muscular Atrophy. Avery passed away a few days ago. She was only 5 months old, but in that time, her parents made sure she lived, something that we fail to do at times.

For more on Avery’s story and to contribute to finding a cure for SMA, you can click here.

So today’s Thursday 13 is a list of things I’d love to do before it’s time to move on and here they are:

1. See that my daughter has her happily-ever-after in love, business and life in general.
2. Visit Macchu Picchu.
3. Take a cross-country road trip through the U.S.
4. Visit Chichen Itza.
5. Go to a shooting range and fire a gun.
6. Drive really fast on a race track.
7. Own an incredible inn on the shore and teach writing to guests.
8. Swim with dolphins.
9. See the Mets win another World Series.
10. Make the NY Times list again.
11. Visit every ball park in the U.S.
12. Regain my optimism.
13. Help others in need.

It’s a doable list I think and I’m hoping there are some on there that may happen soon, like #1. In fact, my daughter gets her MBA in just a few weeks, so I’m really happy about that. Which I guess means I’m on my way to #12.

But there is one that I am totally doing right now – #13 – and you can help me with that! You see, I am donating a portion of the royalties from THE CLAIMED to HOPE FOR THE WARRIORS. Please take a moment to visit the SOS ALOHA Blog and share this information with others!

Another way you can help is to tweet/share the following:

  1. Well, I tend to wish for the impossible. I’d certainly love to see the world compleely at peace while I am still alive. Unfortunately, there is very little I can do to bring that about myself other than praying for it. I’d love to see both my girls happy and settled (jobs would be nice) and a cure for migraine headaches and, while I’m at it, cancer would be great to see while I’m still alive. If possible, I’d like to go to England again and I’d like to finish the book I’ve been working on for so long. That is about the only thing I can really hope to accomplish. I like your list, though.

  2. I’ve been hankering for #3 myself for about 15 years now. Maybe a Writer’s Tour with a group of us…one of these days. How awesome would that be?

    Oh, and you’ll be on that NYTimes list again because you’re awesome. :-)

  3. My number 1 is very like yours except for both my kids; number 13 is also an issue with me. And there are probably a few others that I should consider.

  4. My list isn’t very long. Of course I have lived a lot longer than you so many things that would have been on my list have been done.I never longed for a lot of things. I wanted to find love that lasted–checked off. I wanted to see my children grown and happy–checked off.I have 6 beautiful grandchildren that I dearly love. What more could I want?I have traveled over most of the country except the Northwest but that was not on my list anyway.Thanks to my daughter and son-in-law, I am most likely going to visit Japan in the next year or so. I have a very good life for the most part so I only want to live the rest of it the same way. God has been good to me so I thank Him everyday. Hugs to all.

  5. You know something funny, My bucket list is small, I really only ever wanted a book signed by an author. Thanks to you & my signed book THE LOST I accomplished my bucket list. I do not know how you came up with 13. My only other thing is to laugh as much as possible & thanks to my silly hubby & kids that is a daily thing.—Rachel
