Time for reflection

How do you want to be remembered?


When your time on earth is over, 
How do you want to be remembered?

You worked hard.
You were busy.
You were successful.
You were generous.

Or...

You were kind.
You listened.
You always had time for others.
You were a good friend.
You enjoyed life.


Sometimes we need to stop. 
Take stock and evaluate what really matters.

Put down the phone.
Switch off the TV.
Really be with our families.
Notice the little things...

Sharing sweets in the car.
Buttoning up little coats.
Opening that door.
Making cakes.
A kiss on a tired cheek.
Washing the dishes together.
Reading favourite stories.
Asking if someone's ok.
Sharing a coffee.
The first few minutes after the kids have gone to bed.
An arm around a weary shoulder.
Looking into someone's eyes.
Listening to the small talk.

Rejoice in the ordinary.

One small kindness 
Leaves a lasting impression on people. 

Just live... 
One small kindness at a time.
