live and let live.

today was skyler's funeral. it was so sad. and thats what everyone kept saying, including myself: "its so sad." and it got me thinking to MY funeral.

as much as we dont like to admit it, our funeral will one day come. we all die, its just the way life works. and skyler was obviously no exception. none of us our, but what i heard a lot was: "its so sad. she was so young." and i was just thinking to my funeral. i couldnt tell you when that will be and i dont want to know either, but this whole thing has just made me think that if i died tomorrow, i hope people wouldnt say, "its so sad, she was so young." i would want them to say, "its sad, but she lived. she really LIVED and LOVED." they might say that its sad and i wouldnt care if they grieved (maybe they wont, who knows), but i would want to be known for really just loving god - and through loving god, loving others. i just want to glorify him with everything that i do - absolutely everything. now, i dont think i would have accomplished everything that i want to do if i die tomorrow, but i would want to know that i strived to give god the glory through my life. and i hope i do, even though im not the best at it.

so i hope that when i die, people will say, "yeah, it may be sad, but she loved and she lived. and she did it loud."
