40 before 40

Standard

So this past Friday, I turned 35.  Age has never bothered me and each year I take some time on my birthday to reflect.  This year as I reflected in light of what my life is going through, I thought how important each day is and that I should make the most of each day because as the Bible states, “Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.” James 4:14.

With that thought in mind, I am stealing the idea from a friend and creating a 40 before 40 list.  This will be a list of 40 things I would like to accomplish before I turn 40.  To stay on track, I must complete at least 8 of these things each year.

Here is the list so far:

1. compete in a Disney race

2. learn to decorate cakes

3. create a family cookbook for Maddie

4. attend a painting class

5. sew a dress for Maddie

6. watch the sunrise on the beach

7. take a Disney tour

So I still need a few things to fill my list.  What are your suggestions?
