After getting married a year ago at ages 81&78, my wife and I created this ‘bucket list,’ with the hope someone will grant us the opportunity to trave to as far as affordable – to see the ‘Beauty of God’s Plan. Neither of us has had the opportunity to ‘see the world,’ as we both were busy, -individually – raising 10 kids (collectively). We got married – and as geriatrics, and retirees, we would like to travel to see what lies beyond those hills.
We both – individually- have interesting stories which highlight God’s blessings and protection. I am a prostate cancer and West Nile virus survivor. This latter part of my life is dedicated to service the needs of the homeless and destitute people in my area. (https://www.hnbfoundation.org). My wife has recently released her life story in a book titled, ‘From the Cotton fields to Ph.D.’ She started working in the cotton fields of Arkansas at age 6, and later as a single mom, she went on to earning her doctorate in Social Work. As a social worker for 30 years, and a single-parent foster mothe, and now being advanced in ages, we are turning the pages of our ‘bucket list.’
We hope to document our travels to encourage others – especially in our age brackets, to get out and see the world. It’s Never Too Late!’ We hope to be talking with others we meet along the way, getting to know people and share experiences…
This may not sound as important to others vying for support from the same source, we know there is someone out there who needs the encouragement to ‘live on,’ and that we hope to give!
