That's a great idea. I started doing that, in addition to writing letters to them on their birthdays each year.
I'm 70 and still have a letter my mother sent me on my 10th birthday. I was spending it with my grandmother in a different state...
Those are the things we treasure, Cecilia. Beautiful!
Hi, Ruby. Having died on the operating table and had the tunnel of light trip, yes, I admit that I look forward to being with my family, if God decide that it was ok for me to stay that time. Chronic illnesses have forced my early preparation.
Thanks for sharing, Lolita. I try to do that each day, also. On the last day I may just eat a steak. I'm a vegetarian. lol

Hi Cecilia. That last line could make for an interesting short film, or a novel. I am so sorry for your loss.
I have a bucket list that I am working through. I would work on unfinished items, if possible, and spend as much time with family.
You might be surprised how unimportant unfinished items become when time is short. I agree that some of my experiences would make good reading and I've begun with some of the stories I've posted. However, some are still too fresh, even after 30 years
Oh, Cecilia. Those unfinished items include my family. Just spending the time with them is all I would need.
Spending time with your family may be important but if they don't already know that you love them and will miss being a part of their lives, one last day won't help much. You need to not wait until the last minute to tell people that you care.
What I mean is that the crazy bucket list items include my family. You'd have to know my eccentric, adventurous, kind of nutty family to understand my last would be like. lol They know I love them.....I tell them and show them every day.
