What Do You Want Them To Say?

Picture it, it's the end of your life. You know that soon you'll be dead leaving behind family, friends, acquaintances, and even enemies. The thought comes across your mind..."What will they say about me? How did they really see me?"

Now look at your life. Think about who you are, how you act, facial expressions, attitude, personality,.. all of it. What do you think they'll say? What would you say if you were someone else looking at you?

So what did they say?

Very recently an elderly woman passed away and person after person mentioned how they remember her testimony and her faithfulness. After seeing and hearing about her and all the good things over and over I couldn't help but stop and think, "I want that!" and "What will they say about me?"

No matter what age I pass. I want people to say good things about me.

I'd like things to be said of me like: faithful, caring, loving, strong, a great friend, confidant, always smiling, great mom, etc.

I don't want people to say: she did the best she could (which typically means not much), she had her moments, she could be smart, she was there most of the time, etc. That's just an Ish, like our Asst. Pastor preached. I don't want to be an Ish, but that's a whole other Blog Post.

So lets say you're like me and in your very honest look at your life you decide people wouldn't always have great things to say or they won't say what you want. Guess what we're still alive, which means we still have a chance to change. Will it be easy? No. But I bet it will be worth it.

So what do you want them to say? ...

Online Class

Yes, that's right the woman who hates schooling is taking an online class. It's a class on Excel '13. I must admit I'm, for the most part, enjoying this class. I'm currently taking the Introduction to Excel '13. There's a second class Intermediate to Excel '13, which I'll take when this class is over.

I was looking around the site and noticed they have a ton of great classes that I'd be interested in. So when I'm done with Excel I'm definitely going to take some other classes.

I'm only going to do one class at a time. They'd let me do more, but I prefer to focus on one at a time. Plus with Seth one class can be hard enough to focus on.

Can't wait to get my little paper of completion!

Warmin' Up

Wow, it's been a while since I've been on here. I have to admit the weather got warm and that kept me offline, but then the weather got colder again and that's just depressing so once again I wasn't on. Oh well. I'll try to do better.

I can't wait for the warmer weather to stay! Get out, go on walks, take pictures, play with Seth, shooting hoops, hitting softballs, ..  all things we've been doing on the warm days and I can't wait to get back to it.

We've been having a lot of Milky Way recently. If you've never been to one, you're missing out. Great tenderloins, orange tangerine, vanilla coke, fries, etc. Now if only they'd put up a gate on their outdoor (and only) eating area so the kids can't run out in the lot!

Speaking of Milky Way I met a friend their for lunch on Saturday that I hadn't hung out with in a while. Had a great time getting to sit an talk to her. Honestly didn't feel like a ton had changed... besides the fact that she's engaged and I have a 2 year old.. some pretty major changes, but it just seemed right to hang out together. Can't wait to get together again!

We need to get out with some of the other friends too. It's been far to long. This means going to the park with the kids, basketball for the guys, maybe some softball, lunch, bonfires, cook outs, shopping, and all other kinds of fun. Hopefully this year we'll be better about having these outdoor things at our home and not just waiting for someone else to have them.

Bring on the warm weather!!
