Have you ever heard the saying that in life is a matter of nothing happening and then all at once everything happens. Today in church I had a sudden thought of clarity. An AHA! Moment. What would you want people to know about your life that you have lead if suddenly you disappeared from the face of the earth? What would be your final statement.
(This is not a morbid post but rather a thought building one.)
If I was suddenly gone I would look over the mountain trails I had walked and I would drop a stone on the door steps of all the people who have been my life teachers and on those rocks I would write one word for the lessons they have taught me through the years.
As I lifted higher I would try to visit all the places that meant so much to me, gaze around the rooms where I spent all my happy times. Look at the fences I gossiped over. The bathrooms I cried in, and I would seek the friends who teach me so much in a moment of peace and I would whisper in their ear a silent thank you.
Rising higher as the world looked like a sphere I would say I lived my life. I tried to fill each moment and I loved my life. I loved my mistakes. (I hate that question "if you could undo any mistake which one would you do?" I always answer nothing. Cause If I had a chance to do redo I would do the same mistakes. What can I say? I'm stubborn.)
I love my life.
