It is a beautiful, haunting, magical place. Megan has a lot more beautiful pictures on her blog of that time.
I was so struck by the lovely epitaphs there. So simple and so true. "Devout wife, Christian mother, Faithful friend". That just about sums up what I hope to achieve in this life.
"She has left to her children the priceless example of a pure and useful life."
Wow. So simple and so....hard to do.
In what ways can I show an example of a pure and useful life?
Though I am in no place to think about what I would like my epitaph to say, it is quite humbling to think how my family and others will remember me?
Will my children remember my frustrations with them or my kindness to them?
I hope so much to be a faithful friend.
I hope so much to be a devout wife to my husband. One who loves well and serves well and sacrifices well.
I hope so much to be a Christian mother...leading by example and with my words.
