I went to a funeral last week.
I looked around.
I captured the moment.
I saw the faces that filled the spaces.
The grief was clear.
The sadness is tender.
The care was genuine.
The affection was deep.
The appreciation was sincere.
I saw regret wash over some faces.
Maybe for Vern; the dear man who passed away. Maybe, or more likely, for words never spoken to others.
It’s true, “Anxiety weighs down the heart, but a kind word cheers it up.” 1
So, on their behalf, and for each of us, here are two words of wisdom:
Say “Thank you” to everyone you should, every day.
Say “I’m sorry” to everyone you should, every day.
“Catch up if you need to,” is #mysilentscream.
#LeavingALegacy is what I’m thinking about.
Note: If you’re not sure what to say, here are some time-tested suggestions!
