    WOW...that is the kind of question that brings mixed feelings. On one hand I would be devastated for knowing I was going to die...for another I would be happy as I could say and do whatever I want to for those days without worrying. smile

    I would probably start to speak with my boss. lol

    Then I would probably use my money to do Experiences like driving a rally car and some supercars...stuff like that. smile

    I would spend time doing anything and everything that I possibly could. Only things which I would enjoy. Traveling, seeing people, going places and saying things that I wanted to say to others that maybe I held back from saying. I would write down everything that I would want to know about, everything that I would hope, wish or dream to come true. I would spend all of my hours with people I want istead of people that I dont want to or who only want to see me.  And I would not worry about anything else that does not matter to me. Hope this helps, Lanea

    If I only had six months to live, I would spend it preparing for my children’s lives without me. Because they are only 2 years old, I would write each of them letters for their future birthdays, and describe to them all the things that I hope they are experiencing and all the things that I am afraid of for them in the next year to come. I would keep a journal telling them about me and how I view them. I would record my voice on tapes, telling them how much I love them and how very special they both are to me-and if I could pick the two best things in this world that have ever happened to me-it would be the two of them. I would record my voice singing “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” and “Patty Cake” for my son and “Itsy Bitsy Spider” and “You are My Sunshine” for my daughter. For my son I would make sure that I would tell him to be careful with a girl’s heart, and treat all women with respect and kindness. I would tell my daughter to never say yes when there is any doubt that the answer should be ‘NO’-I would warn her that she will have her heart broken plenty of times in her life-but to always be willing to love if she wants to be happy---I would tell them both that, “Sometimes it takes pain and tears to get to joy and laughter.” I would make sure that as many pictures as we could all stand would be taken. I would let them get away with making a mess-as long as they were playing nicely with one another. I would call my parents everyday and make sure to see them every weekend. I wouldn’t get mad at my brothers or sisters for saying stupid things that hurt my feelings-I would just smile and say-okay, I still love you. I would make sure that my husband knew what I want for our children, what I expect for him to do for our children after I am gone, and what I hope for him and the rest of his life. I wouldn’t go to bed angry just to escape another fight. I would say I Love you as much as I could to all the people that have bettered my life. When I couldn’t sleep- I wouldn’t get frustrated- I would simply get up and watch my kids dream or cuddle next to my husband and listen to him breathe. If I only had 6 months left of life, I would make sure that I spent it laughing, loving and living as much as I could with the people whom I love the most

    I would make sure I didn't leave a mess behind for someone else to clean up, pay off, and waste time I should be spending so they don't have to.
