Friday Five: The Bucket List

Singing Owl from RevGals writes:

I wrote this Friday Five a while back but was unable to post it. Just saying, so you know I am not ill! :-) Actually I am heading out of town and will not be able to read your posts till sometime early next week, but I'll do so then. Have fun, and don't think too hard about this one. I figured we were due for some fun after Lent and Good Friday and Easter and all that churchy stuff!

Four days of being mostly in bed with a really bad case of flu (do not worry--I will give no detail) has me pondering the fragility of life. LOL! Death, however, has been cheated in my case and I am up and taking nourishment. In that vein of thought, do you have a "Bucket List"? In other words, from the movie of the same name, five things you want to see, do, accomplish, etc. before you kick the bucket?

I'd say learn to skydive. But if you know me, that's a laugh. SO with some degree of seriousness, and in no particular order...

1. Go with the Bearded Brewer to Ireland. I've been, he hasn't.
2. See our kids be established and happy in the places God has gifted them to be working. (we still have two in school... I am planning on a long life!)
3. Write a book. Not sure what kind. There's too many words in my head and ideas floating around and I've love to get them on paper... (and they don't have to be in Turabian formatting!)
4. Maybe pastor-by-the-sea? Or pastor-in-the-mountains?
5. Visit all of the places across the U.S. I've never seen, but want to (mostly west of the Mississippi).

Happy Friday, everyone...

Maybe BE could work on an Ireland trip (wouldn't THAT be awesome). That wouldn't address the matter of getting the bearded guy there, but I'm just thinking out loud. I'd like to go to. (Don't read that as inviting myself along on your trip, however...)

I love your list.

I hope west includes Texas!

mompriest said...

Diane said...

Yes! I hear you on the travelling AND the book....

we're right on the Mississippi, does that count?

Sophia said...

Come to California, too, please, and we can walk the beach!

Ireland does seem to be a recurring theme--wouldn't it be cool to take a RevGal field trip?

Sue said...

Great list Deb. How about traveling North????

Interesting about another RevGal who wants to go to Ireland. #2 is beautiful and what I hope for my children, too--what God wishes for all children I believe.

Maybe the switch to Turabian is what keeps me from writing my papers?? I always need another excuse. . . .
