What would you do with your time, if you found out that you only have ten days to live.? Have you ever thought about this before and made any decisions about it?

I would spend them with my family I do not know where that would be but I would want my kids, and their spouses/significant other to be there and my sisters and some of my husband's family.

I would spend every moment of my last days with my children. I would make each day count and make them the most memorable that I could. I would also create a video of my children and myself for my kids along with other things for them to remember me by.

That is so very sweet! It reminds me of the Sally Feild movie, did you see it? She made a video for all of her children when she found out that she was dying. It was a very precious movie. Appreciate the response!

First off, it's always been a goal of mine to see Africa before I die especially my friend's school for disabled children in Uganda. So I think I would have to go there for part of that time if I hadn't already been there (which I hope to be well before I die). Then, of course, I would have to spend some time with my mom, other relatives, and important people in my lives. I wonder if I could just bring them all to Africa with me so we could all have one last grand adventure together.

Well, personally I hope that my Life would never come to this as I feel it would be a life changing experience for sure. But if this would ever happen to me, I would be spending my last 10 days with my husband. I would make sure that he and I could do some things together that would make him want to remember me always. I also would be calling my Pastor, and everyone I knew to Pray and believe God for a Miracle. I would also be Praying myself making sure I was ready to meet God when the right time comes as well. As I believe in Miracles I know it would be truly up to god what happens from there.

The first thing I would do is call the kids and ask them to come home....so I could spend my last days with my children and grandkids....I would divide up my personal belongs so they each have what I want them to...give them all the info they need to know......and just spend my time sharing my last few days with them.

I agree with you. I would rather give them what I want them to have while I am still here if given the choice.lol but I would want to spend the time with them too.

I would spend my last 10 days with my husband, children, grandchildren, my brother and his family. I am not sure what all we would do but as long as we were all together is all I would need.
