Live Every Day Like it is Your Last



When I woke up this morning I went downstairs, brewed my coffee and turned on the local news like I do every single day.  The first thing I heard on the news was that there was two separate fatal car accidents that occurred earlier that morning.  Traffic in and around Spokane usually isn't too bad so a car accident of any kind is big news.  It really got me thinking.  The first thing that came to my mind was Tim McGraw's song, "Live Like You Were Dying."




As my 36th birthday gets closer (it just happens to fall on Mother's Day this year), the "what if's," come to mind. What if I get in a car accident today or tomorrow? What if I find out I have cancer? What if something happens to Chris when he is traveling for work? He is turning 40 the day after my birthday. What would I do if something happened to him? What would my family do if something happened to me?


Have I accomplished everything that I want from this life on earth? How will my kids remember me? I have not gone sky diving or Rocky Mountain climbing, but those things are not on my bucket list.  So from now on I must live like I am dying.  

I need to...

  • Kiss, hug and tell my kids and Chris that I love them every single day.
  • Pray harder and more frequently.
  • Read my Bible more.
  • Smile every single day.
  • Write that book that I have been thinking about but haven't started.
  • Create personal videos for each of my kids so they will remember me.
  • Call my old friends from back home on the telephone. A phone call is much more personal than Facebook. I need to get over my fears and anxieties about the telephone.
  • Say hello to a stranger.
  • Spend five minutes every single day one on one with each of my children.
  • Take more time to enjoy God's wonderful creation.
  • Think positively and love myself.
What would you do if you found out you were dying? Are you satisfied with you life? Do you have a bucket list?
