Sarah said...

ha! too funny...At first I didn't see that you said you had only done the things in bold. I was skimming the list and and was thinking to myself, WOW..I didn't know she had been to Paris...then I figured it out! I love the list. I think my favorite is that you have "had a baby and seen the Alamo" right next to each other!
Have a great week!

Let's see...I met Tom Landry when I was in middle school. One of our boys is named after him. He was a fabulous man and so kind and gracious!

I met Tony Dorsett at a restaurant(dallas cowboys), Chad Hennings (dallas cowboys) goes to my old church...are you seeing the Dallas Cowboys connection going on here? ha!

I also met the actress Lynn Whitfield when she was doing the Oprah show in Amarillo. She was nice as well!

I've done #s 82, 85, 90, 99, 95

On number 66 I had the chance when we were in Germany, but was a little afraid. Well, maybe more than a little.

I have done 62 of your 99. I have come to the conclusion it is how happy I feel and not the other "stuff" that determines (for me) how successful I've been. Live out loud & unapologetically,--go with the flow & the rest will take care of itself. If you want a #100, I suggest ride an elepahant at Tiger Tops in Nepal (visit the tented camp too), it will blow your mind. Oh, and Rome, go to Rome. Thank you for your blog.

~ Humility ~

Humility is perpetual quietness of heart.
It is to have no trouble.
It is never to be fretted or vexed, irritable or sore,
To wonder at nothing that is done to me,
to feel nothing done against me.
It is to be at rest when nobody praises me,
And when I am blamed or despised;
it is to have a blessed home in myself
where I can go in and shut the door
and kneel to my Father
in secret and be at peace,
as in a deep sea of calmness, when all
around and about is trouble.
