What have I done or not done...

I got this "Bucket List" from the Glunt Quartet blog. The blue ones are the ones that apply to me. Are there any that surprise you? (DEV see #26-you know the story!) Do you have numbers you would like to share that you have done or numbers you would like to do? I thought this was fun and made me reflect a little and look to the future a little. I hope this post prompts you to remember some of the important things in life and maybe to enjoy your many blessings a little more thoroughly today.
