I pray the Lord my soul to keep,
If I shall die before I wake,
I pray the Lord my soul to take.
I have memories of getting on my knees with my mom at bedtime to say this prayer together. My favorite part was always the God Bless because that's when I would try to name everyone I wanted God to bless. lol Coming from a family where my mom has 13 siblings....the list seemed endless.
How will I be remembered? Who will miss me? Would I be ready? Would anyone cry?
My husband and I were talking about our post mortem plans the other day. Sounds morbid, I know. Not sure how we got into that conversation. But seriously, we were talking about what our wishes were after our passing. Funeral or non funeral arrangements per se. Hey, this stuff is good to know...just in case. Don't think i'll mention what decision we came to because that might cause a stir in itself. hahaha Furman insists that he pass before me though...what nerve!
I am soo thankful for two friends in particular that have given me their shoulders and some great words of encouragement. Thank you ladies. I love you both!
