Interesting idea. I have thought about making a list like this once. I have to say there are a few things on your list that I have done, so if I have done them can they not now go on the list? Since traveling is not something I ever really thought about doing but for some reason the Lord has blessed me with. Now tell me this. Why is it my kids can sit on an airplane for 13 hours, a bus for 5 with hardly any problem yet making it through that 1 hour of sacrement meeting each week is a killer, now tell me that. It just doesn't make sense. Keep me posted on what you accomplish I don't plan on loosing touch with you any time soon. I know it cost a lot but if you come to China while we are here really all you pay is your visa, airfare, and the gifts for those you love;)

your dreams are really realistic! Wow! Mine are always ridiculous- "sing at the Met" "be an ambassador" "teach my children to read the bible in Greek"
lol.
