Me in the Middle Dreaming of Kauai

********************

I’ve been invited to go to Kauai!

My bucket list isn’t too long.  I’m content with the simple things in life.  Kauai …… Hawaii!  Surely of bucket list quality!  Traveling has been an adventure for me and I’ve always  wanted to ‘seize the day’ when opportunity knocks.   This is one of those times when opportunity is knocking at my door and it’s an opportunity I’d be reluctant to refuse.

When I was a child we weren’t taught to make a bucket list.  We just let life happen and went with the flow.  Our parents chose what they felt was best for us.  We were together and that made for happiness in ‘seizing the day’.   My life has been full in many ways, especially in the meaningful things.  As a young woman, wife and mother, my joy (and sorrows) have been my ‘seize the day’ moments as I fulfilled the loving roles the best I could. God is with us through it all ~ the good and the bad.  I worked my bucket list into those years in my own way.

Now I’m given those moments to find joy in the gifts that I find along the way.  Those moments when the universe smiles down on us and you know it is good.  Friends that I meet come into my life and fill me up where I need to be filled, and teach me lessons that help me to grow.  Opportunities fall in place when I’m open to receive them and when I trust my God-given intuition that the timing is right.

So, this opportunity has gracefully fallen into my life.  I thought my bucket list had just about been  checked off and I am always content with the simple things in life.  A relationship is growing and he’s invited me to Kauai.
