The Bucket List is the film story of corporate billionaire Edward Cole, played by Jack Nicholson, and working class mechanic Carter Chambers, played by Morgan Freeman. They have nothing in common except their terminal illnesses. While sharing a hospital room, they decide to leave it and do all the things they have ever wanted to do before they die according to their bucket list.
I thought of this film when I invited a friend to accompany us on a visit to the Holy Land. In a note she expressed her happiness at the thought, but her happiness turned to tears when she realized the time and opportunity had come and gone because her body was no longer capable of such a trip.
Time flies. Make a bucket list of the things you want to do before you die. Do them when the opportunity arises. Don’t put off till tomorrow what you could do today.
This is my word of encouragement. Make Life Matter.
