|I would post a picture of Ariana and her best friend, but I don't approve of posting pics of other peoples' kids on my blog. :)|
Tomorrow is Field Day for Ariana's school; an event she has been looking forward to for weeks. But yesterday she told me she wanted to skip Field Day and attend the funeral of her friend's father. Both events overlap and she knew she would have to choose one or the other. I was impressed that skipping Field Day seemed like an inconsequential decision compared with supporting her friend.
Next week my grandma's funeral will be held. I was asked to help write her obituary and, after starting, I realized how monumental the task is of condensing 97 fully lived years into a few lines. How do people make up their minds as to tombstone engravings? Those are even shorter! Someone needs to start putting QR codes on headstones, that way families don't find themselves in dilemmas regarding picking epitaphs that will forever remain etched over their loved one's burial places.
