Hooray!!! I made it 31 days writing on one theme – self discovery through list making. If you would like to read the entire series, a complete index is listed here.
It’s the last day of the series and it’s Halloween.
So I picked out one of the creepiest lists I could find.
Actually, it’s not really creepy. Or at least I’m not too creeped out by it. In fact, it’s kind of a family hobby to walk through cemeteries and try to find the oldest tombstone. I found one that was nothing more than a stone with “Indian War” carved into it.
When we went on our anniversary trip earlier this spring, we visited two very old cemeteries.
Oops….I’ve gotten side tracked.
This is supposed to be me listing epitaphs I would want on mytombstone
List what you would think would be your epitaph…
Well, at first I thought of the sweet thoughtful things.
“Beloved wife and mother”
“Asleep in Jesus”
But that’s not really my style. I like humor. I think you have to laugh a lot just to get through sometimes.
So I am thinking,
“Pardon me, you’re stepping on my feet.”
“Well, this sucks.”
Whatever goes on my tombstone, I do know that I really don’t like funerals. I would rather not have one. I hate to cry. I hate to be sad. I don’t want others to be sad. I think instead, there should be a celebration of life. More like a party. I don’t want people to be sad, or angry. Even if it was by accident, I don’t want retaliation. Don’t do anything that I wouldn’t do. Pray. Forgive. And know that I am in a better place.
But hopefully, not anytime soon. I still have a life to live. And young kids.
