Memorable

I just found out yesterday that my cousin died in a motorcycle accident. He wasn't too much older than me. Really hits home and made me think. Our lives are so fleeting. What are we doing with them? Will anyone even notice when we're no longer here? My husband says to live like Ecclesiastes--eat and enjoy the fruits of our labors for tomorrow we die. But I think we are meant to do more, much more. I think our purpose is in what we do for others. Our legacy is in our children. We pass down our values, our love, our dreams in them. And they will pass them down to their children. Beyond our children, every time we do something for someone else, it is memorable. We don't know what small things we do that may have a huge impact in someone else's life. It is these things that will survive long after we are gone.
