Let's see I have 43, Rachael had 44 one more than me. Rachael had also listed what she'd like to do on the list. So here's what I want to do:

1. Visit Hawaii (planning a trip soon, yay!)
2. Start a business (kinda already have, just waiting on my partner!)
3. See the Mona Lisa in France
4. See Michelangelo's David

Gosh I thought I'd have more than four. But after going over the list again these are the only four that I really want to do. I enjoyed doing this, I hope you do too.

This brings me to some sad news, little Cora has lost her life to cancer. Visit her mom's blog here and say a prayer for their family. On January 22nd they found out their precious baby had cancer she passed away this weekend. So fast!

Also, remember Cynthiaa at Yummy Mommy who had to deliver her baby after finding out that he had passed away due to umbilical cord strangulation. Both of these families need prayer at this time.

Have a blessed day!

That is a fun list-maybe I will give it a go? I was very sorry to hear about little Cora loosing her battle with cancer. And also for Cynthias loss of her little angel as well. Breaks my heart to hear of these kinds of things.
And I will be giving all of my kids an extra big hug today!~Tam:D

Oh yea I got so into reading your page and forgot to ask you what network was that show you heard about on? I sold my story to ABC and the web series name was "In the motherhood". But they may have changed that for television? The gal I was in touch with from their legal dept. didn't know if they would be contacting me to let me know exactly when the show was airing. So I am keeping my eyes and ears open!

tam said...

OOOH MY GOSH Valerie you are absolutely right! I justr checked ABC.com and it starts March 26th!!! I am so freakin excited-YEA!!!Thanks for the heads up-I rarely ever watch ABC-isn't that funny? LOL! I guess I will be watching now hu won't I? :D
It looks like it is going to be a pretty funny show too! They have different actresses for it then the webosodes. I so hope it last and that I get to see my story air! I do have my story on my blog I don't know if you read it. It's called this is not my dad. I think I posted it back in Oct. or Nov. when I first started blogging.
Oh man I have to go call my hubby and tell him!~Tam:D
