101 in 1001 – the Day Zero project

I found out about this project and decided to try.  Below is my list of 101 things to do in 1001 days.  I will cross off items as I complete them, and write about some of the more interesting items.  I tried to do things that would cost little money, and I could do with family.  Inspired?

    I sent my mom 40 roses on my 40th birthday, with a note saying ‘Thank you for each year.’

    She was even more blown away by it than I thought she would be. She kept the card, and it was still in a little dish on the island after Dad died.

    Good luck with your list. It takes a lot of thought — even courage — to make a list like that.
