I had the most beautiful revelation this morning. If I died tomorrow I would be terribly sad that I did not have another moment with my children, but I have a great peace with my life now. In the end I do not believe there is anything I would say I wish I had done differently, or amends I wish I would have made. I feel so very free.
During the time for all ages during our Unitarian Universalist service the children were asked what they thought the word faith means. Our amazing Twinkle volunteered and said, “Faith is when you really know someone very well and you trust them enough to know that they would keep a good promise.” She has a lot of faith in me, and I promise her every day that I will be the kind of person she can look up to and have faith in. That is a promise worth trying to live out every day for the rest of forever, and one that makes the great end not seem so very scary anymore.
