Take this to Heart :: simple thanksgiving

This afternoon, I went to a funeral. A friend’s mom lost her battle to cancer.

I was reminded of this verse: Better to spend your time at funerals than at parties. After all, everyone dies ~ so the living should take this to heart.

I never liked that verse.  I thought it was morose. Unsunshiney. But upon going to the funeral I was reminded: Life is short. And at the end, the important thing is what you leave behind.  The impact you leave on people.

Not toys gathered. Not work accomplished.

Quite simply, it is the legacy you leave.

Take this to heart …
