legacy of love: my conclusion

This is the song I want played at my memorial. This is the Legacy I want to leave behind. This is the story I want told when I get to heaven one day.
Between my dad’s and my grandpa’s story, I will never be the same. I will never look at life quite as flippantly as I once did. Sometimes though, such as recently, I get wrapped up in myself and I forget. This is exactly why I chose to revisit and share this particular story of my dad.
In my marriage, as a parent and a friend, and even as a writer….all I desire is to make a difference. If even to only one person.
Then my Legacy will be complete.

  1. It sounds like you are in a good place, Summer. And you DO make a difference! I’m glad you’re my friend.

  2. Hi:) Found you via BSU!

    That is a deeply moving song. I am so thankful you shared it. My hubby (age 40) had 3 heart attacks and a bypass surgery last year. He also has multiple complications from diabetes as well. I shared this song with him and it really touched him. He had a near death experience and the “crystal lake” was something he experienced in those moments that he “died” a few days after his surgery. Thank Heaven he came back to us:)

    Your blog is wonderful and I will be stalking you from now on:)
