The family discussion turned to dreams and goals yesterday. Grandpa said he was too old to set a goal. The youngest grandson went into melt down mode. “Why didn’t you tell me you are dying today?”

The confusion on my husbands face was profound. I hurried and gathered the child in my arms. “Grandpa makes goals every day. You know that to do list he makes, well for him those are goals. I don’t know when Grandpa will die, I am not expecting it to happen today. When it does happen I believe he will be gone away from us and when we die he will be there to come welcome our spirits to our new life. So let’s make a goal with Grandpa today to make a magnificent memory.

He thought for a long time. “Well if he might die today I want him to make cornbread because we love his cornbread and he is the only one who can make it just that way.”

It all reminded me of the quote.
