Resolutions and Obituaries

My Grandmother passed away just after Christmas.
She was far and away one of my favorite people.

It's true.

It's funny that that statement is true, because these last few years, I didn't see or speak to her very often.

I got caught up in the drama of my own life - all very valid and very dramatic ;0


in retrospect.

Her celebration of life service was held on the 4th of January. So hot in the middle of resolution territory, I was reading over my favorite person's obituary.

And it really is like the high school counselor said: What do you want your obituary to say? How do you want your life to be? What do you want it to look like?

And now when I find myself overwhelmed with dishes and diaper changes, trying to squeeze a shower in, finally, at 10:30, I am reminded that this is not the way I want my life to read.

I can use the excuse that everything takes time, God is in the details (or is that the Devil?one of them lurks there anyway) or I can 'Do more, to Be more'.

So here I go. Off to the 10:05.

Baby steps :D
