Sheri's Mission Statement

We had a great gathering for Momma's birthday.
All of the family gathered around her hospital bed.  She is set up in the living room and is the queen.
We sang Christmas carols and other songs to mom. Then she sat up in bed and spoke about her life and lesson's she has learned and hopefully what her legacy is.  She shared her mission statement and spoke about each area.   We laughed and cried and took a lot of pictures. We all said a big family prayer at the end then put all of out hands in a circle..connecting everyone to each other and said the Cole family cheer..."Forever."  

My mission is ....to return with honor
To pay homage and reverence to God for all I have
To live so I have no regrets
To find the joy and laughter of life
To share all I have
To read and learn all I can
To enjoy life with all my senses
To inspire others to be the very best they can be
To bring joy to self and others
To help make the path a little less painful for those who follow
To create environments where it is safe to speak out- to create- to discover
To help others gain a better understanding of life
To stay positive
To encourage others
To be a role model for the "can do" attitude
To help others find the beauties of the earth
To love unconditionally

Which is  best?  To live as if I will never die
Or
To live as if I will die at any moment?
