MY BUCKET LIST
When I learned my cancer had returned it was quite a shock; I immediately became angry. After all I had just returned to work and even though I had lost my ability to eat solid foods, life was going very well. I was building significant momentum for the coming year; I was sure I was cancer free.
What a shock to be told to think in terms of about a year to live. I definitely had not thought this was possible. I certainly had not prepared for this news. The response that came naturally was anger and I was good at it. In addition, I began to isolate and avoid family and friends.
It wasn’t long however, before I knew I needed to slow down, accept what was happening and re-invent myself. So I prayed for guidance, and God answered those prayers. That’s where the idea came for my bucket list.
My Bucket List was originally the five people I wanted to be in heaven with.
After spending time with each of the individuals on my list and finding out they were all also interested in spending eternity together - I decided to expand my list and find 20,000 people, each willing to put 5 people on their bucket list and thus, encourage 100,000 people to join us in heaven. And that has become my new purpose in life.
