Today’s prompt is:  What is the one thing in life you want to finish before you die?


“Do you want us to do everything we can to keep you alive – including CPR?” asked the EMT as I was placed on the stretcher.  I didn’t need to think it over!  “Yes,” was my quick reply.

What do I want to finish before I die?  I want to finish living.  I want to be ready to quit “doing” and be satisfied with “being” because I can’t take what I do, I will take what I am.  I want to catch the bright future that is before me.  I want to “be raised in an incorruptible body”  and find the adventures that await those in Jesus Christ.

One other thing. I want to leave my albums and picture all organized!

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

  1. Good luck on the “albums and pictures all organized.” 😉

      😀 Oh the joys of hard copies. But I sure don’t care for the thousands in the camera alternative. I now have to print my g-kids pictures off FB, if I get to have refrigerator adornment!

    Great job, Oneta. I worked all summer and fall organising some 50+ years of snapshots and such. I got them all arranged by year, more or less when I could not take having them in my living space any longer. I put the boxes away until spring at least.

      I was the receiver of many of my mom’s pictures. She always kept them up to date in albums. I decided to scan many of old family history and pictures to Publisher and made an album and CD’s of them. I’m pleased with that project – But I still have all the original stuff. And then there are all the family pictures since my generation came along up to 5-10 years ago when everybody keeps pictures in their own camera. That’s only about 75 years of stuff! I really getting the project whittled down, aren’t I? 😀

    I sorted all our hard copy photos last month. A job I’d been putting off since I became an adult and it was my responsibility 😝 Felt good!
