What do you do with old memories?
Turn them into new legacies!
I have outlived my mom by 27 days.
I don’t mean my mom died 27 days ago.
I mean she died when she was 61 years, 5 months and 16 days old.
I have eclipsed her life span.
In thinking about her,
remembering all the accomplishments she achieved
and all the people she served so well in her tenure as an educator,
one of the questions rattling around my brain is
how will I be remembered?
I know, I know,
61 is hardly considered old anymore.
However, I have more years BEHIND me than AHEAD of me.
Now more than ever, I want to make them count.
Time is whizzing by.
It seems like just yesterday that I was chasing children,
frantically trying to get places on time.
I was consumed with feeding, watering, and caring for other people.
