Before I get started on today’s challenge post. I would like to ask a favor from you. Right above my picture on the right column could you please sign up for my newsletter. I’m going to start making my newsletter a larger part of my blog. Thank You!

Now I want to thank everyone who is participating in the challenge and helping drive more traffic.  The prompt for day 3 is If you knew tomorrow was your last day on Earth what three things would you do?

1. The first thing I would want is to call or see as much of my family as possible.  Especially my parents, siblings, nieces and nephews and grandparents. Get a chance to say goodbye and leave nothing unsaid between the people I love and care about.

2. Then I’d want to spend a perfect day with my husband and daughter, just having fun and no stress. Go anywhere and do anything we want.  Maybe hop on a plane and go on a last minute trip because on the last day of your life, money is no object, it’s all about creating lasting memories for who I’d be leaving behind.

3.Finally I’d want to record messages for my daughter. If I were to not be around for the big moments in her life I would at least want to give her advice and be there in a way for her. I’d want her to hear from me for events like first date, graduation, college, getting married, having kids. Those were the moments I really thought about after my stroke. How would she have gone through those moments without me. I know she’d have her dad and all our family but I’m her mom and some moments you just need your mom for.

This topic is close to my heart because I know that you don’t get warning very often that your life is about to end. I thought about it a lot and it was one of the things I struggled with after the stroke. I’m very affectionate with my daughter and I don’t like to leave things unsaid because I’m aware of how fast life can end or change.

So how about you, what would your three things be on your final day?
