Another year has come and gone. I started my Bucket List 3 years ago. Each year I pull it out to see what I've accomplished during the year.
I've given birth to a beautiful daughter, survived a divorce, given the United Stated government 35
34 32 years of service, raised a daughter as a single mother, sent her through college, watched her get married and give birth to a beautiful son son and daughter. I've traveled, made new friends and kept old ones, purchased a home, a luxury car and I've been able to bank a few dollars. I've survived my father's death and become closer to my siblings. I've strengthen my faith in God, I'm giving back to the community, and I can truly say that I'm working to be an example.
Even at this stage of my life, I still have work to do. I've been thinking about retirement in the next 2
3 5 years and what I want to accomplish before and after I reach that milestone. I decided to make a Bucket List. Here are a few items that I've added or achieved to date:
- Drive Across Country
- Travel Abroad - Africa, Italy, Hong Kong, London, Thailand
