Remembering A Life Lived

There is a lot to talk about.

Family & Friends. Hopes & Dreams. Successes & Accomplishments. Values & Skills. The Little Stuff. The Big Events. There is so much we experience in our life. There are the big moments that shape us … graduation, a first job, falling in love and getting married, having children, watching them grow into adulthood.

When we reflect on our lives, it’s these memories and milestones that may come to mind first.But a life story is more than that. The small moments and special people we meet along the way are a part of us and help shape who we are and what we value.

Although we may know about some of the big moments in the lives of our loved ones, we may not know much about the other experiences and people which helped create their life. Sitting down with a loved one to talk about their life can be rich and rewarding. Learning about those memorable events, people, places, activities, values and lessons they have learned can help bring us closer to those we care about the most.

Having the talk of a lifetime can make a difference. Finding a way to start that conversation may be difficult, yet may be just as difficult to stop.Deep down, most of us want to know we, in some way, made a difference in this world … that we mattered to someone, and that after we die, we will be fondly remembered by those who knew and cared for us.

Today, there are so many ways we can remember and honor the unique people in our lives. Having the talk of a lifetime is simply the first step.
