A Walk through the Cemetery

Sunday, April 21, 2013

Frequently, I will walk through the local cemetery on my walks. My Mother and Dad are both buried there. They died too young, both from different forms of cancer. My Paternal grandparents are buried there as well along with other extended family and friends. It may sound morose, but It is good for me to do this. It reminds me of how truly short life is. How we don't know when our time is up on this earth. It reminds me to make the most of every day and every moment God has given me to live here. It reminds me to be the very best I can be. Love others. To be a godly example. To impact and influence others lives in a positive way. What an opportunity! And it causes me to think about what kind of legacy I want to leave behind when my time has come. What do I want people to remember about me? Yes, it is good for me to walk through the cemetery on occasion.

    Yes you are so right. When we are growing up we think our folks will always be there. Once they aren't.......we wish we had that time back.
Yes mam!

    Wow! Thank you for this. I am very sorry for your losses. I have been struggling with losses of family members, and it is so true how short life is. I am going to really try hard not to only focus on the people I have lost, but focus on the people that are here too! You are beautiful! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
