  1. For your bucket list #3….attend a spiritual retreat, monthly “service” or giving project with your kids (IE. prepared bags of needed items for homeless shelter, bring donated items to pet shelter, cookies to local police or fire station)….of course it is easy for me to offer my personal bucket list items to someone else to accomplish! But you did ask – insert smile here!
