SD: yeah, pretty much.

But I'm serious, I wonder what type of "legacy" we'd all like to leave. Or what we would like our "lasting impression" on life to be.

I don't know, just exploring some thoughts...

My dad asked me what kind flowers I wanted once. Told him lots of beautiful violets and he could pick the color. As for engraving??? No clue.

My brother said once that he just wanted a big middle finger and a "I STILL feel the way I do" after he got a lot of grief for so many years for his different views and attitude about life. Maybe not for me, but I did laugh REALLY hard to hear it!

In all honesty- I don't think it matters whether I've been here or not- I have no legacy. How's that for morbid. Don't need a tombstone for anyone to remember that.

sd, I'm sure that isn't true. She made the world a little more beutiful, that's what I want mine to read...the how doesn't matter, what do they know from wallpaper, maniquine dressing, or saving a life?

As sappy as it sounds, it makes my eyes swell up a little to think my tombstone would say that...I don't do a lot of things well, but I do make it physically prettier in my own silly ways, and I think that helps. And every bit that you do helps too. She did what she loved, she reached out, she reached our hearts through our eyes, she gave GREAT advice...there are things you could say sd, seriously!

Thanks, EF. That made me cry. A touchy subject for me, I guess.

If I wasn't being cremated, I'd want something along the lines of:
She laughed, she listened, she loved.

a funny one is:
I was here but now I'm gone,
I left my name to carry on.
Those who knew me,knew me well
Those who didn't can go to hell!!

There's the bob dylan line "and so I wait here patiently..." if that doesn't say it all!

SD: You are very warm and caring person. Please do NOT underestimate your importance. You have been helping me and others. Your niece is so lucky to have warm and caring auntie just like you. We have so many things in common. ~Love, RAS~

OH...MY...GOSH.

What a gloomy topic.

Mine should read: This is a JOKE!

I'm actually at home, doing laundry and sipping a really good peach smoothie right now.

Don't act all surprised. You know me.

Thanks, MamaC. Those are nice words to hear.

Last night I was thinking a lot about this. You know, my parents bought a burial plot for me when I was a baby. Have you ever heard of such a thing? All these years I have driven down the 405, looked over at Forest Lawn, and think "That's my destiny". A plot. Not to worry- I have my very own plot. Ready and waiting for me. Thats where I'm going. Its always been there, waiting for me to fill it. The gardeners are watering it and mowing it, just so that I can go there someday. And then they'll just keep watering it and mowing it the same after I get there. Nothing will change. I'll be laying there for all eternity w/ my relatives- some who I was never close to, and there I'll be- laying inches away from them forever. My destiny was determined at birth. My sister will be next to me. We haven't spoken in over a decade. It reminds me of a tree I saw in Jamestown- it was called the Mother- in- law tree. A couple had married- the family disapproved, and after their death a tree grew between them and separated the graves. Hence the name. Maybe a tree will grow to separate me from the family. Pretty wierd thoughts I'm having.

SD:

Not funny or weird at all. My folks bought plots for all us kids. It's not uncommon where I live for families to do that. Never thought about laying next to someone I didn't want to be next to tho. I just figured we would be worm food anyway, so didn't really matter. 🙂

Glad you seem to have your spirits up this evening.
