Everyday is an Adventure. Embrace it

When everything seems to go wrong

Have you ever had one of those days when everything goes wrong (or at least it feels like it)? That pretty much sums up the past month for us.   I’d rather not go into every detail on this post because it would be pure negativity. I could choose to see it that way or I can remind myself that everyday is an adventure!

Not all Adventures are full of fluff, glitter, happiness, and wahoo. Some Adventures involve hard work or strategic problem solving.  Some may even test your strength emotionally or physically.

I read a quote somewhere once that said life is not measured by the breaths that we take but by the moments that take our breath away.  I must say, this is a very wise quote. Although most of us see this quote in a very sweet, positive and possibly even romantic way,  I’m here to tell you that this quote is true. Even if what took your breath away was getting slammed in the chest by some horrible calamity, or that moment that shocked you beyond comprehension.

Every day is what we make it, so make it an adventurous one.

What Legacy Will You Leave?

What Legacy Will You Leave?

Last night my boys & I attended a funeral service for my Aunt Patsy. The minister spoke of how she was always smiling, the love she spread, protective nature, & her deep seated faith in our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ (the Legacy she Left).

I wondered how the funeral service would affect the boys. This was their first funeral service since losing their dad in October of 2009. It was difficult for them.

Aunt Patsy’s funeral was totally different than their daddy’s for many reasons though. The biggest reason being everyone in the family, distant or close, knew the status of Aunt Patsy’s relationship with God. Her funeral really was a celebration of her life!! What Legacy Will You Leave? The boys’ father very rarely spoke of faith or of any personal convictions for Salvation. When he passed, there was no celebration, only great sorrow. All hoped he went to a better place, but there was great doubt.

Aunt Patsy was full of life and the fruits of her faith were & are so very obvious!! Her Legacy was strong and prevailed.

When it is your time to part from this life, how will your obituary read? What will others stand around & remember about you? What words will they use to describe you? 

It all suddenly clicked for my boys!!
