Should I be blessed to enjoy a long life and one day find I have plenty of time on my hands, I should read this list and remember the things I didn't have time for now, but should do then.
Paint the kitchen Sherwin Williams Windy Blue
Go on a Mission Trip
Scrapbook old photographs and write down the names of everyone in the pictures
Take the Viking Cooking course in Greenwood, MS
Send your kids a surprise check in the mail (and no they didn't insert this)
Sit at the base of Mt. Whitney and drink Pinot Grigio with my brother
Visit the local library
Take a train ride anywhere
Visit the beach in the winter
Be a ridiculously big tipper to those who least expect it
Carry silver forks in my purse
Always have something nifty to give to a child
Sit with strangers in a nursing home
Read all the classics
Record the stories of those older than me
Travel to France and never cross the Atlantic to get there
A list of such import cannot wait for old age. It's time to visit that library, sit on the floor and re-read a book, yes a great childhood classic with pictures and wonder, one you enjoyed when you were exactly the age of that angel by the Christmas tree. And so your list will be shortened, your task made easier.
Joy will be yours as you draw a line through each item, and find peace sitting quietly with that glass of Pinot Grigio.
