Thinking about a Bucket List

I am so grateful for having life and never believed the doctors that I was going to die. I have a good life, but have allowed depression and stress and most of all pain and fear control me. I live for my children, yet one is on his own and the other is not far behind. Both full of life and ready for life's adventures. It's time for my own. This divorce, not the disease, has left me broken, broke and not living life. I am going to do everything in my power to fulfill things I have dreamed of doing in my life. Don't know where I will get the money to do this, but I will find a way. Here is a start to my Bucket List. There will be so much more added with time.

I want to stay in a castle turned hotel.

 ... or two.

Wander the English countryside.

Spend a few months in Tuscany.

Absorb every inch of Notre Dame and gaze upon the spiritual Rose window.

One day owning a few acres with horses. 

Maybe alpacas ...
... and one of these! <3

You'll make it. You've made so much of your life already, despite the depression.

You tend to forget how we all marvel at your fortitude, and your inner strength. You've got loads.

I think this is an awesome bucket list, and there are even a few things on there that I'd like to do.

Tuscany and England, for sure. Castles, definitely. Alpacas!! Love it.

You'll get there. You have your whole life ahead of you! We all do, no matter what our age.

Karen said it best. Listen to her!

The only thing I can add is that I have actually been researching the castle thing lately- maybe a trip where we all can go, bring all the kids and their friends! Ever since high school, I've wanted to do it.

Also, the last creature on the list...I think is officially the last guy who pursued me. No joke. I stayed at a barn that was converted into a bed and breakfast and he was the mascot! I fed him apples and he would cross the field just to see me! They are so loving! LOL
