What do you say to your children if the next time you speak to them is your last?
Yes. You are dying and you won't have another chance...they may even read this someday...talk to them, not me.
Love yourself and others to the fullest of your heart, without hesitation and without expectation. Also, be true. Be honest with yourself and others. There is no guarantee that others will return the love and honesty, but at least if you have it within yourself and if you deliver it, you are as good of a person as you can get. You will always know what to do in any situation when you respond with love and truth.
I will always love you, but remember what good things have been taught to you. Be the example to make this world better. Love yourself and believe in yourself. Be true to yourself, and do not allow anyone to make you feel less than who you are. Remember your family history, who came before you, and how to make things better for those that come after. Stay strong when it comes to doing good and have the opposition against you.
mommy loves you and is always proud of you no matter what. I will always be in your heart and I will be waiting for you until the end of time! Always love and be there for one another as I have always done for you!
Wow - what a compelling question! Years ago, I had a medical crisis & was rushed to the hospital and admitted (I was more than seven months pregnant, with a two-year old we'd had to leave with a neighbor). I remember wondering if I would make it, and my main thought was that I hadn't had a chance to say goodbye to my little son and to let him know (again) how much I love him.
I guess the only thing I'd add to that today would be to let both of my children know I love them unconditionally, I believe in them, and that families are eternal.
My Dear Child,
Go forth into the world and make a difference, one hour, one day, one week at a time. Make your life count Leave footprints on the planet.
Care about what happens in your community, in your state, in the country, and of course the world.
Care about others. You were put on the planet for multiple reasons. One is to help to care for other human beings. Another is to help and protect all of the animals and the vast natural wonderland that surrounds you.
You are unique and special. This world is a better place because you are in it.
Be able to look into the mirror each night and like the person reflected back at you.
Know that you are loved and a blessing to so many. God is in your corner, every minute of every day. You never will walk alone.
How wonderful. I have been there yet the heavens and angels and miracles had other plans.
Stage 4 Non-Hodgkins lyphoma with pancreatic involvement and a full metastases.
What a wonderful moment when I told my 3 children how much I loved them and they knew it was not platitudes.
Life is so darn marvelous. Be in it and love it.
What a wonderful blessing for you! I'll bet you have an entirely new appreciation for each day.
Yes I do. And the really cool thing is that so do my children. This is a great question
To know that I may be leaving them in the physical sense, but I will be with them forever in spirit and in their hearts. That my love for them is undying and I will watch over them with admiration in every step of their life, for there is everlasting life for those who believe and even our wrong doings have been forgiven.
I would tell them that I tried my best to be a good parent and to take what they learned and leave the rest to their hearts when moving forward. To know that time spent with family, friends, spiritually, self reflection, and the wondrous gifts of this world we have been given, is more important and memorable than any monetary gift ever received.
Finally, not to be sad about my passing for I am in a better place where pain and suffering is no more, and to remember the joyous times when reflecting and sharing memories of our times together.
Quite macabre, don't you think? I tell my children every day what is in my heart for them because children always seek approval: I love you, I'm proud of you, be aware of your surroundings, show respect and appreciation where appropriate, especially to those who give to you so selflessly and effortlessly.
But you know my friend......no matter what we say, it's what we do that they imitate.
Don't try to please me, do not mourn my departure, remember me but let me go....we have walked together so far....now the time comes for you to pick your own destination and make your own footsteps in sand....mine soon disappear and there will be nothing in sand for you to follow.....
I would thank them. Thank them for being there with me and letting me be a part of their lives even when they didn't NEED me anymore. I would also acknowledge my imperfection and hope that above any instance, they will always remember first how much I loved them and how much they impacted my life.
Other than that, you're absolutely right Garifalia...if I didn't live it, saying anything else now would be moot.

I've heard that atheists claim that the point of their existence is to leave the world in a better place. As we know, the world is never a better place. Why struggle through life, learn to love and then die?...

Being a Christian, means being a follower of Jesus Christ. Not so? Does this means a Christian has to be a martyr, willing to DIE emotionally or physically in order for others to live, or to have a better life?In a...
