Top Five on my bucket list

Bucket List

is a fun one this week!  So much of a Mama’s energy can be spent on making sure her kids experience all they want to.  We forget that we aren’t done living yet!  My kiddos are growing more and more independent with each month that passes.  I’m so thankful for all of the opportunities they have been exposed to like learning horseback riding and playing team sports.

I have a bucket list of my own which seems to grow with every step of independence my kids make.

Here’s the current top 5 on my list:

Learn to play guitar: 

In Junior High music class consisted of learning to play the guitar for a few month.  I really enjoyed it and would love to be able to play more than scales.

Travel to Greece and do a tour of Paul’s Journeys 

I remember when I traveled to Europe in high school with my choir.  It was so humbling to be around such amazing cathedrals and such.  When we traveled to Rome someone in our group pointed out that Paul had possibly walked the same streets.  I have to admit I’d yet to connect the dots on that, but in that moment, the Bible got a little more real. I’d love to see all the places Paul traveled!

Finish my Book Lessons From The Sidelines

I’ve have a book project that is in the works. Some day I to publish and turn many of the thoughts on this blog into a book.

Master Knitting 

I really enjoy crochet, embroidery, and knitting.  I find it relaxing to create something with my hands.  Unfortunately, I’ve not been able to spend much time focusing on anything but the basics.  I’d love to knit myself a sweater some day!

Attend IF: Gathering in Person 

Our campus ministry hosted IF: Local last year and we intend to do so again this year. It was a great time and I have learned a ton from each of the conferences!  I’d LOVE to grab a few girlfriends and experience everything in person.

    You rock! We mamas do put ourselves last and don’t allow ourselves to dream. Hopping here from Crying in my Cheesecake…and I may have cried in some Friday!

    Love your list! And I love that you are dreaming some dreams for yourself. I am not so interested in the knitting or guitar; my fingers and I don’t agree on such skilled movements. But the rest of it is high on my list. I would LOVE to go to Greece! Thanks for linking up!
