What do you want to accomplish?

I went walking with a friend this week and she mentioned that she and her husband had recently talked about what they have left to accomplish in life.

Dave and I do have a bucket list. We started a foundation. We teach our kids life skills and empathy. We grow (some of) our own food. We travel.

And then I sat next to a woman at the middle school choral concert Wednesday night and ended up telling her about my recent car accident and the angel looking over my shoulder. Her comment was, "Clearly it wasn't time for you to die. G/d thinks you have something big left to accomplish."

I believe her. Now I just have to figure out what that is.

Your accident scared me. Made me think about all this stuff too.

YOU HAD AN ACCIDENT?!?! HOLY CRUD!

Assuming everything is ok - thanks to the guardian angel looking out for you...

BUT, your post made me think about a quote I turned into a desktop wallpaper, "People work hard for a paycheck, they work harder for a person, but the work hardest for a purpose"...

Then, I added a questions for myself, "What's your purpose"...

Interesting to think about that on a daily basis.
