My Bucket List

Can't Wait For This To Be Me

Who Is Going Zip Lining

For Christmas my children and their spouses gave me something I have always wanted to do. I am going to have to wait for warmer weather but Zip Lining is in my future. I can’t wait.

For years I have heard of my friends going with their families and have always thought, “Boy I wish I could go” But I didn’t want to go by myself. I wish my husband would like to try these sort of things but he won’t even get on a roller coaster.

My daughter-in-law apparently heard me mention I wanted to do this and suggested it would be a good gift. Now that conversation we had a few months ago makes sense when she was questioning me about if I would really ever go zip-lining.

I found this photo and I can just close my eyes and know that will be me. My arms opened wide with a big smile as I check off something on my bucket list.

More On My Bucket List

Should I mentioned to them some of the other things on that list? Things like a Hot Air Balloon Ride, seeing the Grand Canyon, or going to Ireland? I always wanted to parachute but I crossed that off the list after seeing some nasty aftermaths of jumps gone wrong. Bungee jumping off a bridge would be fun. So many things I have always wanted to do.

A Gift Of Experience

I am not sure about you, but giving the gift of an experience is wonderful. In the past few years my kids have gifted me with a cooking class, a two hour one on one glass blowing class and last year they gave us a subscription to Netflix. Did you know there are no commercials when you watch these shows on Netflix? They go right into the next show and before you know it 4 hours have past and you have watched 3 seasons of Longmire.

I hope you all had a wonderful safe and happy Christmas and I wish you a joyful New Year. Hopefully you too will check off a few things on your bucket list in 2022.

Stephanie Fleming was raised at Behnke’s Nurseries in Beltsville. Her Mom, Sonja, was one of Albert & Rose Behnke’s four children. She was weeding from the moment she could walk and hiding as soon as she was old enough to run, so many weeds, so little time. Although she quickly learned how to pull out a perennial and get taken off of weed pulling duty.
