Lisa and I read a devotional this evening that ended by asking what we'd like to be remembered for; what we want on our tombstone. I realized that, as far as personality traits, the thing I most long to be remembered for is also the thing with which I struggle the most. And that is that I want to be remembered as someone who would always be willing to give anyone their time to talk to them ... and that I would always be fully "present" in those conversations. It is with that "presence" that I struggle. So often I get so pre-occupied and my mind is rushing in so many directions that I just am not fully "present" in conversations I am a part of. I really, really struggle with that and I do so want to get better!
How about you? What do you want on your tombstone?
