Her Bucket List

We have a sweet little neighbor lady that is in stage four cancer and she has a bucket list. It was one that kind of surprised us. My husband often bakes little treats to take her. He does everything from scratch and they never turn out the same way twice. She always compliments him on his work.

She expressed a bucket list wish to him. She wants to taste something from the best bakery from every single state.  I explained that it was a pretty tall order. Some bakeries don’t even ship. He was determined. He said, “You get me the list and I will do the rest.” 

I was realist~ the man has alzhiemer’s, there will be some major hiccups in his plan and still he was very insistent and passionate that he could do this. So it begins today. I simply found him the list.
