My Bucket List

We recently saw the movie "The Bucket List" with some good friends of ours. Afterwards at dinner the conversation naturally turned to what each of us would include on our list. As I have no great desires to thrill seek or travel the world, I had trouble creating my list. After mulling it over for a few days, it dawned on me. I would like to have something that I have written be published.

Oh, to be a published author! As long as I can remember, I've loved writing. Letters, stories, e-mails, even school reports and term papers, any reason to put words on paper. There's nothing quite as gratifying as crafting words into a cohesive and entertaining narrative.

So in this age of online journaling, I've decided to take the plunge and create my own blog. I'm not sure what I'll write about. It just seems like life needs to be recorded. It won't be eloquent or full of Solomn-like wisdom, but it will be real and honest. And, with a husband and four kids I'm sure there will be moments of humor as well! I hope that it will be a blessing to anyone who reads it and that above all that my words will bring honor to my Savior and family. I can't wait for my next entry!

Simply stated...I need to write.

You sure do know how to put words together. Even if you are never pulished, you are a writer, and I'm so glad you've been there to write for me.

Thanks for sharing Carolines birthday with us. It was not as good as being there, but we'll take what we can get. I like your little piece on "spending". now lets see if you can practice what you preach. (Love you)
