Hello my dear readers, not that I even have any as of this point. Today was day two of Texas snow storm 2011 - which means I was stuck at home with very little to do. Sure, I could do homework. Sure, I could get a head start on Spring cleaning. But no, I would rather not thankyouverymuch. So instead, I allowed my bookmarked blogs to lead me to other blogs I had never been to. I found myself at one where a lady created a list of things she would like to do in her 48th year of living. Well heck, I didn't want to have to wait another twenty years, and with my birthday a week away......I decided what the heck, why not.
So without further ado......here is my list of things to accomplish in my 27th year of life!
I don't know exactly what a prayer is.
I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down
into the grass, how to kneel down in the grass,
how to be idle and blessed, how to stroll through the fields,
which is what I have been doing all day.
Tell me, what else should I have done?
Doesn't everything die at last, and too soon?
Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?
