30 days to live

There is a new book I just heard about that is called: One Month to Live: Thirty Days to a No-Regrets Life

I haven’t read it yet, but it got me to thinking this morning. If I KNEW that I had only a very short time left to live, what would I do?

Well, the first thing I’d do is probably disconnect my laptop. I spend way too much time on it. I’d also stop spending so much time in the kitchen and start taking some shortcuts there. Many people start trying to tick things off their “lists” that they haven’t done. This doesn’t appeal to me for some reason. Instead, I would just start trying to jam-pack every day left with “little things”. Start trying to create little lasting memories for my children that would stay with them for years to come. I would also write something special to each child (this includes Ava and new grandbaby to come, too!) that they would have to save. I’d write a long letter to Leonard, as well. Getting something recorded on audio would be an interesting thing to try to do as well.

I think adopting a “Live Like You Were Dying” (I love Tim McGraw…LOL) mentality would be a really great thing to do. Think I’m gonna try to be more aware of this in my daily life.

Do I have any readers who would like to share what they would do?
