It's All Just Stuff

I was working with my sister today to clean Mom's house. I was thinking about what a person leaves behind after they leave this life, it is such a nebulous thing. I wish I were a more eloquent writer...I cannot explain, but I was left with the resolution to DO more to positively affect people and acquire LESS stuff. The stuff does not last; it ends up getting sold off or boxed up and given to charity. It is the things we do for other which are lasting. An individuals actions ripple, echo and spread in ways which are truly lasting.

I've been off the blogs for so very long. I just read through to catch up and I've missed so much! Your life has changed but I'm so very happy to hear that you are going to follow the dream through.

I'm so sorry for the loss you've suffered recently, but also grateful for your words. You're so right, stuff isn't the answer, only our actions.

Best, Christy
