Ramadan Bucket List

While flipping through a magazine many years back, I came across an article of a family celebrating Christmas and their home decorations.  There was an image of drawstring bags attached to thin rope strung around the dining table.  It hit me that I should do that for Ramadan.  I had the intention to create a drawstring bag advent calendar for Jenin. I had all the materials and supplies but never got around to it.

Every year Ramadan would come and go and I still had never created any advent calendar of sorts. This year, I’m not necessarily giving up on the dream, but I’m making it a bit easier on myself so I can stop being so hard on myself for never achieving that goal.  This year, I went with a bucket list.  Not even 30 items. I wasn’t trying to overdo it and wear myself out.  Just a reasonable amount of reasonable tasks. Surely another tradition I wish to continue.
