Things you want to do before you die...

Have you ever have some regrets of not doing something when you had the chance? I had this chance to scuba dive years ago but since I am claustrophobic and not a good swimmer, I became afraid to try it out even though I was told the I don't have to be a good swimmer to scuba dive. Now I regret why I haven't tried it. Another thing that I regret was not being able to do something to its finish. In one team building exercise I had participated, we were asked to climb a pole about 12 inches in diameter and 100 feet high. Once we get to the top, we have to stand on the disc on top of the pole, jump and touch a hanging rope about seven feet away from the top of the pole and 5 feet away from where one should stand. I got to the top of the pole alright, but I felt like passing out when I was about to stand and can't even come down because I felt so weak already with fear that my teammates have to pull the rope attached to me to so that I would get to come down. I promise myself that I would try them again before I die. Do you have anything you want to do or try before you die?

The only thing I know that I want to do before I die is to be able to finish all the albums I have started for them . In their albums I have tried to convey just how much they were always the best part of my life and that each and everyone of them was special to me in their own way . Because there are five of them , I don't want one of them to ever feel excluded and to think that I didn't love them as much as the next one . I am in the process of trying to write each one of them a letter that they can have when I did so that they will have something personal just from me that I am trying to put into words just how important they always were to me and how they were what made my life have meaning .

Oh my that is very sweet of you and what you have is a very good idea. It is something that is very tangible that your children will still have even if you are no longer with them. Thanks for sharing and for planting the idea in my mind too. More power to you and your family!

I think I would want to make sure that my children had the best possible start to life and were able to look after themselves. Then I would be happy.

A lot of things. I want to sing in front of people like I use to do as a child. Now that I am handicapped I feel embarred for wantng to do that. I want more corage also.. I want to loose more weight and find the right man to get married to. It will be my second. The first one went downhill but with prayer and hope I will find the right man

You could still sing even if you are handicapped. Singing is a talent that no one could take away from you. All you have to do is find in yourself the courage to do that. As to losing weight, well I have that problem too...he he he! But I know that weight has nothing to do with finding a man and it is ones confidence that is in question. You are lovable just as you are and are blessing to those people whose life you are able to touch. God bless!
