Live the way we want to be remembered

My poor blog this month has been neglected...I'm coming down off of some stress and now that the snow is starting to go away and I can see big patches in my yard of grass, I'm getting happier.  Something about spring no matter how dirty it is, is pretty exciting.

So my thing this month, though not very exciting seems to be planting dahlia bulbs which i dug up last fall, cleaned, and stored each one through the winter.  I've never done that before, and so tonight, I planted them in pots to start indoors.  I planted 25 and I still had more left.  Part of me thinks they won't grow.  I don't have luck with things indoors.  I'm pretty bad at keeping plants alive indoors!  But it's an experience, and hopefully I'll get something!

I went to a memorial in the city best friend's sister in law.  I came out of it feeling very touched.  By what the family said, you know that the world was a better place with her in it.  I would have loved to have known her-I think I would have really liked her from everything I've heard.  The one thing that kept rolling around in my head though was that we need to live the way we want to be remembered.  Whether she knew it or not, her effect was profound-here she ended up touching me and I had never met-her.  That's a beautiful legacy.  So to you Carrie...if I've been touched, I can't imagine the legacy you've left in others.  You were a beautiful woman inside and out.
