Life is a Gift

What kind of legacy will you leave?
Will the loved ones you leave behind,
Remember you for your love, laughter, and the kind of life you lived?

Make life worthwhile,
Don’t waste even a second.
Each moment is a precious gift from above.
Remember that.

Make memories.
Love with all you have and more.
Encourage others.
Laughter warms the soul.
Give your footprints in the sand meaning.

Cherish the simple things.
Blessings from Heaven come in all shapes and sizes,
And come in all sorts of people you meet and grow close to.
Keep hope, faith, and above all else,

Drift purposefully throughout life.
Tomorrow may take you to another world.
