My Bucket List Experience

Saturday, July 09, 2011

I was lucky to experience one of my top" bucket list" goals.

One of my favorite sports to watch is the ladies of the LPGA. I am absolutely amazed by how far those gals can hit a golf ball, especially when their drivers are almost as long as they are tall. Well yesterday I got to see it for myself down in Colorado Springs at the U.S. Women's Open.

What an awesome experience!!

I didn't know what to expect, but I was as excited as a little kid on Christmas morning. We got there early because of the chance of rain later in the day. I wanted to see as much as I could just in case it was delayed again, and I wanted to see someone, anyone, who I've watched on tv.

I just saw a commercial where 4 men are in a locker room at a famous golf course, and Tom Watson walks up next to them. Then 2 more pro golfers walk by them on the other side and say "hi". They all just stood there with their jaws dropped. I bet I looked just like that when I saw the gals on the first tee. I couldn't even tell you who they were, but it was awesome!!

We made our way to the back nine, where I saw some of the more familiar names... Paula, Yani, Suzanne, Brittney, Morgan, Angela, etc. Again, my jaw dropped. Shoot, I got excited when I saw the reporter from ESPN. It was like Christmas for me all day long.

Everyone has their own goals and dreams. I have many. I only wish that everyone could experience something as special to them as my day in Colorado Springs was for me.

    Congratulations on an item to scratch off your bucket list! It is so awesome when we get to scratch one of and then anticipate being able to do another. I have things on my bucket list that may take a long time to get to but they are there waiting for me when the opportunity arises and I'm not going to give up on them. I'm so happy for you!
