I Will Remember You . . .

remember

I Googled myself.  Have you ever done that?  I write a number of articles, have a few IMDB credits to my name, and just wanted to see what popped up.  It was interesting.  I found a few places where my writing has been posted that I wasn’t aware of.  I found intriguing comments that I’d missed on some of my writings.  And I was able to take a nostalgic stroll down memory lane.

As I read through an online summary of my professional and public life, I realized how much was missing.  While it highlighted some achievements, it didn’t express how important my family is to me.  It didn’t talk about the importance of my faith in God and love for Jesus.  It failed to communicate my desire to put people above things.  It didn’t capture the essence of me … and what I want others to remember me for.

And it helped put some things in perspective.  It feels great to be recognized for good work, or professional achievements.  I smiled at the number of articles that came up with my name attached.  I felt accomplished.  However, none of that matters if my heart for God, devotion to family and love for people isn’t seen.  When I strip it all away, that’s what really matters.  And that’s what I want to be remembered for.

How will people remember you?

Sister, we’re two of a kind ….

Me and Tia October 2014

My sister and I love to be silly and sing this song from The Color Purple to each other. I hadn’t seen my sister in months, and loved every minute of it this weekend. It’s got me thinking of all the wonderful (and crazy) things sisters learn from each other.

Things only sisters understand …
– Embarrassing childhood photos never go out of style
– You can want to choke each other one minute and overflow with love the next
– You can not speak for weeks and pick up a conversation right where you left off
– One word phrases from childhood brings laughter only the two of you understand
– Bringing up memories without words is the best!
– Sometimes a look or a smile says it all ….

Miss my sissy already :)
