In the hopes it will help me to overcome some of my fears, achieve goals, realize dreams and find fun ways to to spend more time with my family and friends, I’ve decided to start a life list. It’s all about experiences. So many times I have said ‘I want to do that one day’ but then I sort of forget about it or never find the time for it.

  1. This is a fantastic list!! I would love to see you say “I do”, and I pray that Randy gets back to Ottawa. Two more beautiful grandchildren would be fantastic, and to see them all in Disney, omg!!

  2. I daresay you’ve already accomplished some/many of these Alia. Very great and very inspiring … now I’d better get busy!!
