One hundred posts gone and time to review. The first thing that comes to mind is, review the L List , the one about living, loving, laughing daily.
Here it is as I have written it originally. Now lets see which items I can tick and then what to add.
|See Clarens in the Free State in autumn. Tick April 2012.||Find something to laugh about everyday. Not enough.||Love the Lord and commune with him everyday. Still working on this one.|
|See Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe again.||Smile at the cashier in te grocery store even if I am tired. Not enough||Hold a grandchild in my arms. ( one for my children)|
|Visit our children In Tanzania. Tick November 2012.||Laugh at life’s small disasters. Sometimes I get this right needs work though.||Hug someone everyday even if it is the cat. The cat hugging is going well so much so that she is following me like a shadow.|
|Go on a trip with my only sister somewhere in the Cape Winelands.( no children or husbands allowed )||Laugh with others who are having fun. Not enough.||Cultivate old friendships more. I have been seeing old friends and it was great to see them again.|
|See the pyramids in Egypt||Love old people even if they are difficult. Both parents died last year thankfully, I have no regrets.|
|Visit The Serengetti and Ngorogoro. Maybe a little later this year.||See our two youngest children graduate. One of them graduates next week!|
|Learn to paint.|
|Take a photography course.|
Looking back and reviewing the L List, I realised, I lack laughter and fun in my life. The past year has been a difficult one, but I look forward to incorporating more fun and more of my L List wishes in the coming months.
Do you have a living, laughing, loving list?
