I mean for it to be a moment in time when you can think about all the good in your life and even all the mistakes you have made in your life. I mean it to be a moment in time when you think..... when I'm gone from this world - what will I leave behind? What will people say about me? What will they remember about me? What will my children say? what will my friends say?
WHAT will they say at my funeral?
What will you leave behind?
I think our biggest legacy is what we leave behind when we are gone. Granted - you make a difference EVERY day by what you do and what you say and how you act.... BUT when you are gone - how do you want to be remembered?
This should be some sort of motivation every day in how you live your life....
Are you bitter?
Are you hateful?
or are you happy? and full of life and joy?
Are you the person that people hide from when they see you coming, or do people flock to you because they know you spread joy?
I don't know why - but I do think about this from time to time (maybe not at all the times I SHOULD think about it! ) but today - it weighs heavy on me.
Not in a bad way - but in a way that makes me want to be a better person.
A better mom.
A better friend.
A better daughter.
A better sister.
A better girlfriend.
A better CHRISTIAN.
A better example.
Here's a little more food for thought....
I have picked out the songs I want played at my funeral.....
WHAT?!! - don't judge me - I like to plan ahead.
And I'll be up in heaven watchin - so somebody better make this happen!! ha ha

How will YOU remember ME?

Do you have songs picked out - or am I the ONLY crazy person out here??!
