The Mommy Bucket List

I have lived a good life. I don't need or want for much more, but when it comes to my children, husband and family; there are still a lot of things that I would like to experience with them. We are young. Too young to have mortality shoved in our face.

That's why I have created the "Mommy Bucket List". There are still so many things I wanted to accomplish with my children, husband and family. The list is compiled of not only things I did as a child that I wanted to do with my children, but things I wished of doing, and experiences I had hoped to see achieved. Moreover, it is a list of dreams. Dreams that make me happy. And right now, being happy is pretty awesome.

  2. Kate,

    This morning, on my way to work, I was listening to the star fm. I very rarely listen to the radio because I usually listen to my cd player. When I turned it on, you're story was the only thing I heard. I sat in my car before heading into my job site because I wanted to hear your whole story.

    Your story really touched me and had me in tears as I walked into work. When I was 15, my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer in November and unfortunately passed by that February. Listening to your story brought me back to being 15 again (I am now 26). You are a strong woman for fighting the cancer and pursuing this bucket list for you and your family. You will be in my prayers every day and I wish you the best.
