Reflection


After dinner last evening I went for a brisk walk around the neighborhood; I found the house bathed in a rosy glow of this sunset, inside and out, when I reentered through my own front door, the splendid reflection of a glorious day! Earlier I had attended the memorial service of a friend, prompting a different reflection, the personal type.  As I busied myself through tasks and chores all afternoon I remembered my friend, pondered my own life, and thought about how I will want to be remembered. It's simple really, memories will be, can only be, a clear reflection of how one's life is lived; what a powerful and profound realization! When it's all said and done I can only hope to leave a rosy glow such as this one, a splendid reflection of a glorious life. Wow, that's a tall order, so is the sobering awareness that this eventuality is really up to me; one day, one step, at a time!

Life is Good!

It's a little daunting to think about how you're going to be remembered but I'm only hoping that if they remember one thing it will be that I loved well. Now to do that! blessings, marlene

Thank you for the reminder! Thanks too for recommending Ami Simms' Picture Play. It just came in and I'm itching to get started.
