Choose Your Epitaph

ep·i·taph: An inscription on a tombstone in memory of the one buried there.

Ideally, this would be a brief summary that epitomizes your life. What do you want to appear there?

I am not being morbid. Rather I have been thinking about life goals, and in some respects an epitaph tells people if you made it to the goal, or chose the right goal to aim for.

I'll tell you what I would like to be on my grave marker in a few days.

I had to do this in school one time (we were reading Our Town) and I made the class laugh with, "She was six feet tall and now she's six feet under."

Not all that deep...although 6 feet under is pretty deep :)

Now I'd just like people to remember me for something like,
"She ran a good race" or "She ran with perseverence". Ultimately I am seeking a "Well done my good and faithful servant."

Big goals, eh?
