Last Thursday while at the Songs of Water concert I was so moved by the music that I started thinking about what I wanted to do with my life. There are two things I am certain I want to do and that is to stay close to The Lord and close to my family no matter what. Other than that these are a few things that I'd love to spend the time in my life doing. Bucket lists are a pretty personal thing but here is mine for the sake of posterity maybe finding it one day or an older version of myself looking back to see what I actually ended up doing.
