A continuing story by Spoon Shortage Sue
Another summer is ending and I had lots more things planned in my head… But as per usual my energy and pain levels put a stop to that.
As I lay here on my sofa with another movie playing I wonder… Will I complete my bucket list??? How many more plans will be postponed? How many more days just lying here? I’ve been told that my life will end prematurely, my only option, a stem cell transplant. But with a 1 in 14 odds of fatality, not an option I’m willing to take. My eldest summed it up when I was considering my options – “I’d rather have a sick mum than no mum.” So I’ve let the dice roll instead and taken my chances. How long I have left, who knows, but I have lots of things I want to do before then, so lying here feels so wasteful! Time is short, I want to be out there living it…
But I am ticking off a few things as I go along, I am trying hard.
Quality time with my husband ✔
Fun days with my boys✔✔✔
But the big things, the cruise, seeing the northern lights, a Christmas market abroad, touring the country in a camper van… My list keeps growing more and more but my spoons diminish…
Just writing this makes me want to weep!
It’s time to get on with living! It’s time I made those memories!!!
So I’m grabbing life with everything I have and starting planning… My Yule gift is going to be a Pandora necklace, and I’m planning to collect a charm with each adventure! First on the list, a lucky penny to give me the money to achieve some dreams! I will get there, I will live life and get that bucket list completed!!! After all, life is for living!!!
