Over the vacation, my mom had a stroke (don't worry, she's alright), and things like that quite often force you to think about your own existence. So, as I pondered the question, I pondered on my own children having to face something similar. What would I want them to know, what was my goal in my life, what do I want to be remembered for, what would my obituary say...would people cry?
This last thought, reminded me of something I had always said in my "younger" years. As a young adult, I always said that I didn't want to be mourned, I wanted everyone to remember the good times, I wanted people to have a party. And guess what? That's still what I want.
I want everyone to throw a party, I want drinking, dancing, laughter, jokes, all of that. I want someone to joke about the crazy things I said and did. I want everyone to talk about how much I LOVE TO TALK.
This, in turn, reminded me of a wall board that my girlfriends and I kept in College. When, in College, I was not as motherly and upstanding (HAHA) as I am now, so when my friends stayed up all night working on papers, or drinking at a frat party (oops), we would get home and write down, some of the funniest thing we heard throughout the night. You know those moments of delirium, when you just make no sense. OMG those were some of the funniest thing I had ever heard. But, for the life of me, I can't remember any of those random, useless, but rather hysterical phrases. So, I am challenging myself and you to for the next couple of weeks, be on the lookout for those random thought, jot them down and then use them to make a layout. Then, drop off your layout at the store. The winner will win a free journaling challenge class with Dee and an awesome goodie bag.
