A Life Well Lived
Last week my sister and I sat by my sweet aunt and listened to the last words she would say to us. We leaned in, waiting for wisdom and beautiful honesty, because she was really good at giving that. We cried together and I watched as she laughed. I didn't ever want to forget her beautiful smile, and the way she would throw her head back and laugh from the deepest part of her soul. Her eyes were filled with joy as she told us why her life was so good, "A life with Christ is a life well lived." She told us how her life wasn't painless, but the most difficult times have brought her closer to Christ.
I love my aunt and I will miss her so much. How sweet to know she is free from pain and suffering and she is dancing in heaven! Her life carries on a sweet legacy of hope for so many, what a privilege to know her.
