heard the words to describe the departed soul..."Hers was a life
My heart jumped...is this what they will say about me when my season ends?
What is a life well-lived?
Where do we find it?
What does it look like?
Is a life well-lived a long life, or can it last only minutes?
Is a life well-lived one of sacrifice or does it focus on oneself?
A life well-lived...
...a life of deeply loving all others
...a life of forgiveness and healing
...a life of quieting my spirit
...a life of teaching enduring lessons
...a life given away...not thrown away
...and in giving away, the lessons carry on
...and as the lessons carry on, so do our lives...lives well-lived
