Choosing to See

Yesterday, Drew and I said "Goodbye" to a wonderful friend. Rod Mulder will be missed, greatly. The funeral allowed me to experience closure in a chapter of my life and begin a new one. The tributes spoken of him, were astounding and made me wonder, what will people say about me when I am gone?

It made me realize, what kind of legacy do I want to leave?

The type of legacy he left was one of great character who was humble, honest and full of grace.  I learned at the funeral, he was a Christan, who never pushed his beliefs, but simply stood for justice, love, grace and was humility. I never knew he was a christian, I always thought maybe, but he never told me.  He was a man who read his bible cover to cover every year, not simply to do it, but because he wanted to know God deeper, love people more and learn more about grace. He was such a unique person and he made it a point to get to know me, even though I never spoke much in his classes. The funeral was a wonderful way to close a chapter of my life and allow me to think about who I am, what I am doing, why I am doing it and where I am going..

It just got me thinking a lot about life.... What kind of person am I? Where am I going? What kind of things will people remember about me?  What type of relationships am I building with people? Just thinking....
