A Hit of Sparkle

 In Weekly Forum Discussion

Have you ever given it any thought?
What is it that you will leave behind after you are gone?

I want to leave a sparkle.
Like the way the sun hits the water and the sparkles dance across the surface. Just a soft glitter.
Tiny little beautiful moments shared with the ones that I love.

I want my kids to feel my love. The way I hug them so tightly (maybe a little too hard) because I can’t even believe that they’re actually real. That a love like that is even possible!

I want my husband to feel my love when I wrap my arms around his neck and kiss him. I want him to know he’s the only one for me. My one true best friend. My lifelong “partner in crime”
The warmth and feeling of a hug.

I want our traditions to be passed down. Roasting marshmallows over the camp fire, looking at the stars in the sky.
Feeling the ocean breeze on our skin and the sun on our face.
Christmas tree camp outs and gingerbread making.
The sparkle of the Christmas tree lights and the loving feeling of family around us.

I want the sound of the country music that blares in the speakers of the truck to carry on, and the love I have for singing and music.

The heart I have for every furry animal and creature that crosses my path. To appreciate nature and respect the earth.

The way the sun sparkles on the tree tops after it has rained. Taking a moment to see the beauty and to smell the sweet aroma.

To be honest, this is the first time I have even allowed this thought to pass through my mind. The first thing that comes to mind is love. Yup, you know it. All the little things that I love, and how I always make a point of saying it! I love this!

It’s the kindness in a smile, the warmth in a hug, the moment of taking a deep breath and appreciating life.
To make as many beautiful memories as you can.
To forgive others, and experiences that have come into your life and taught you a hard lesson.
To open your heart and allowing all the beautiful feelings in.
To live each day, one at a time. One moment at a time.
To leave a little sparkle wherever you go.
