Things that once bothered you, like your husband leaving the cap off the toothpaste just doesn't seem that important anymore. However, the toilet seat being down and not up for me is still worrisome, I hate a wet tuss...
I have problems with wanting to do the day in and out things that we all have to do. I just seem to want to do the work I want to do. I may sound selfish but it not about that. It is about the things we leave undone.
The things we want to leave behind.
Ask yourself if I Died today. Would you be okay with the laundry or house being a mess or the fact that you didn't write a will or would you be upset at the novel I didn't finish that you'd been working on for years that would never be published.
It the things that I would leave half done that is eating at me.
I know it sounds silly but the number of projects I have not finished the day I died was enormous and I don't think I am alone in this.
Things like paintings that I hadn't finished or started that I had plan to complete for someone.
Novels not completed.
A quilt I was planning to make for my Daughter and sons that if I had not come back to life would not get finished.
The thing is that I am someday going to die and there will be stuff I have left unfinished.
This is the reality of it. It is not the things I leave undone that I should worry about but the things I finished. Did I make a difference with the things I did?
It is the little things that we take for granted, like the smell of my grandmother cookies baking that made a difference in my life.
The dancing in the kitchen with Mom and cleaning it up, that made a difference in my life.
By my Grand Aunt who sent me a birthday card every year that made a difference in my life.

My daughter calling to tell me something special that happened that made my world change that made a difference in my life.
The simple fact that my son married ladies that truly love them and will put up with me that made a difference in my life.
My drama, art and creative writing teachers all made a difference in my life.

The youth director at church that was always looking for way to make a difference in others lives.
My husband that loved me for better or worse and saved my life so I could write this that made a difference.
But, these people and more made a difference not just in my life but now in yours because you stop in my write to read and now your life is changed forever.
Why? By the gift of knowing that your daily small or large deeds always Matter and will be remembered by somebody, that will pass this on in their words, deeds and smiles forever...
