Getting to know me...

Five things I plan to do before I die:

Who knows when I might die? It could be within the next five minutes, although I hope I have a little more time than that to prepare. Ok, here are some things I would like to do before the Lord takes me Home.

1. Enjoy each day and live it to the fullest, surrendering my heart to the Lord and his Holy Mother, giving them my best.

2. Learn the true meaning of love -- love those who are lovable and those who are not lovable, but do it for His sake and in union with Him.

3. Draw others closer to the Lord and the Blessed Virgin Mary -- to help them realize their authentic potential and to be all that they can be in the army of God.

4. To use all the gifts God has given me to the best of my ability to build up His Kingdom.

5. To be the best wife I can be to my husband Bill and to love him and support him in every way I can.

Five things I can do:

1. Write -- short stories, poems, essays, letters, fiction, non-fiction
