If we would saw pefection when looking into the mirror, a lot of us will loose a lot of our charm!

Jill said...

oups! didn't want to post right away! But for the rest I hope everything happens!

Adelle said...

Open Grove Claudia said...

Happy TT

storyteller said...

Maui's lovely ... you really must go ;--)

I hope these all work out for you. Start with #8 tomorrow and SEE yourself as perfect ... just as you are right now.

Hugs and blessings,

Lilibeth said...

Colorado after a snowstorm? Better get ready to stay a while. ah but it is beautiful and may these dreams come true for you.

Nap Warden said...

Bad news Chicky...gas is never going under $2 a gallon...ever:(

Happy TT, good luck on the rest of your list:)

I am sure that stupid war will stop before you die unless the next president has shares in an oil company. For gaz prices I am not so sure 2 $ for one gallon is still very cheap compared to European prices. We pay that for 1 liter ! and if I am not wrong 4 l = 1 gallon !

Dane Bramage said...

I am so gonna steal this idea for a post. Thanks for sharing and i hope you accomplish everything and get everything you wish for.

And thanks for visiting my T13 #77. An An homage to Earth Day. Stop by if you get a chance.

Nicholas said...

I hope you see them all but I advise you not to hold your breath for #6. That will never, ever happen.

anthonynorth said...

Some good things on that list. Not sure about perfection in the mirror though.

SandyCarlson said...

I like your priorities and share your curiosity about these places!

Tilly Greene said...

At least one of those you already have - number 8! You just haven't found the confidence to accept it yet.

Great list darlin'!

Ornery's Wife said...

Seems to me that our view of perfection has been dictated by a lot of people who don't even know us. If we adopt God's view of us, we will see ourselves in a whole different light.

As for the gas, maybe you should just wish that we found alternative fuels that were less than $2.00/gallon! I think you'd be more likely to experience that!

Great list, and thanks for visiting Miller Manor!

Hailey's Mommy said...

Wow, Great list of things. I would also love to visit Australia.

Darla said...

#1 is my #1 wish, too.
#5 is depressing, and I feel guilty about being happy that my husband's promotion makes him less likely to be deployed there.
#9... well, it probably wasn't quite what you were thinking--I was stationed at Fort Carson (Colorado Springs) and woke up one morning to 4 feet of snow--you literally could not see the cars in the parking lot. Three days later, it was all gone, not a trace left--not melted: evaporated. Bizarre.
#11--that's our favorite vacation spot. Easy and comfortable, fabulous weather, and just a 12-hour drive away.

Anonymous said...

Number 1... forever... that's all I want. Ok, and maybe some cheap gas.

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

But since you're going to live another hundred or so years, all of it is possible if we all work a bit harder.

btw, you ARE perfect, just the way you are. Truly.

What a Great List.
When it is my 11 year old's turn to pray before eating our family dinner. He ALWAYS prays for a Cure for Cancer.

Happy TT!

Re: #8 - Perfection is so overrated!

The Gal Herself said...

I'm 110% City Mouse, so I'd love to see New York again. Hopefully either when I'm on an expense account, or after winning the lottery. (It's up to $5.7 mill this weekend.) Next time I go, I want a lot of money so I can pretend I'm Carrie Bradshaw from SATC.

And I think your #1 is very sweet. I hope you get to see that, too.

No Nonsense Girl said...

happy belated T13! :)

Those are some nice things to "hope for" before death. I would agree with most of them, except Colorado (my ex left me for someone there). Haha, just kidding (about the Colorado part).

New York, New York is an exciting city, but San Francisco is much prettier. Of course, I am a little bias.

I have also never been to Hawaii.
