Khan, it is funny you posted that--I am a hopeless listmaker and keeper of old records, and I came across a goal list I made back in 1998 the other day. There were smarty pants additions across the bottom of each season's list of planned chores, plus an editorial commentary on the back.
I showed it to my DH to offer up some criticism of his editorializing, and he looked sad for a moment and then told me it wasn't his writing, it was that of a dear old friend who used to stay with us all the time back then. That old friend died this April of an aneurisym at 52.
The editorial comment: Enjoy Life, Sail Boat, Drink Beer, Live life as it was meant
I treasure it and will try to remember our old friend's words when the days get to wearing on me.
“One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it's worth watching.”
