Bucket List or Live List

February 25, 2021

The first She Words Podcast reflects on creating a "Bucket List or Live List." As a mother of three children and one exceptional needs, confusion and uncertainty regarding our son's future pulled me into understanding the importance of living for today. Our son was born with Agenesis of the Corpus Callosum in 2001, and we were told he may not live long or if he did it would be with many limitations and possible deformities. We were scared, confused, hurt, and saddened. Today he is 19 years old and we are excited, happy, driven, and peaceful. How? Because as a family we decided to LIVE!

Are you living life to the best of your ability? Do you wake up excited and ready to embrace each new day? In this podcast, I discuss what happens when one organizes your dreams, goals, and wishes into creating a "Bucket List or Live List" for you and your family. Our son Jeremiah opened my eyes to understanding how to enjoy the journey of life. Each small accomplishment is a step in the right direction. I know how to make a glass of lemonade out of lemons, how to see my glass as half full and not half empty, and how to lay down in peace at night knowing I did not waste a moment of this precious life given to me. Take a moment to listen and learn, the importance of creating a LIVE LIST.
