After the loss of a family member, we have many collages, displayed photos, and video slides of our deceased loved one that shows how many lives were touched and how this person lived and loved to be displayed at the funeral or memorial service. It is a great reminder of our life!
I have been looking through pictures…again!! As I spent some time snapping photos of my grandchildren this weekend with my phone, I remind myself that I really need to print those photos so I don’t have to go back through Facebook to look at them. I need to print them and put them in an album I don’t need to rely on technology or electricity to look at. I only need my eyes and fingers (or something to flip pages with). I urge others to do this as well, for many reasons. This is you. This is us. This is life. Show you lived and loved!!
Life in pictures…
We all have loss in our lives
It’s the only guarantee we face
But looking back, and holding on
We have only pictures to take your place.
Life should never be taken for granted
Live each day as if it were your last
Because a time will come for us all
When the life we have had passed.
Make it evident you LIVED A LOT
For those left behind, life is much richer
We would rather have the person here
But have to settle for life in pictures.
With every smile and goofy grin
The mud, the grease, the friends,
It is your life in pictures
That will allow your life to never end…
