Write Your Own Obituary
Today I attended a graveside service for a friend who had passed away. Her son-in-law read her obituary. She had written it herself. She wanted certain things to be remembered, so she wrote them down. What would you want included in your obituary? Perhaps taking time to write them down would help your family. Her son-in-law said it was very nice to find this brief summary of her life already written down. What things do you want people to remember most about you? What were the things that you felt were your greatest accomplishments? What do you want your grandchildren and great grandchildren to know about you? Even though you probably won't die tomorrow, this could be a very valuable thing to do. You may re-evaluate what you have done in your life. Perhaps there are things that you really want to do yet. You may be able to make some changes in your life so your obituary will be what you want it to be. Hopefully you can make some very positive changes in your obituary every time you review it.
