YOU-logies and Last Letters for the living
This article is an example of why I think we should write YOU-logies (eulogies for the living) to honor our loved ones before they pass away. Why do we wait? So we can tell the family how great our deceased loved one was? Why don't we tell our loved one before he or she passes away?
I know it is a different way of thinking, but if you would like to write a YOU-logy to honor a loved one who is still living, please contact me to see how I can help you. Or, perhaps you want to write a set of Last Letters for your loved ones so you can impart your wisdom, gratitude, and forgiveness forever.
Oh, and if you plan your Celebration of Life party, it does not mean you will die the next day. We don't know when we will leave this earth, so make the most of every day with your loved ones.
What Our Children Really Want

I like #1. If you are stumped for stories to tell, check out my Time For A Story series.
I also like #3. I used to take my children on mini-dates. Sometimes it was out to lunch, to a movie, to the bookstore, or just to the grocery store alone. The quality time means so much to them even if they don't express it to you.
And #10. My kids are not the best spellers (a writer's curse, quite honestly), but I love when they make mistakes that are full of kind, loving intention. One day, my daughter wrote on my whiteboard BEST MOM IN THE GALAZY. Now, I write around her words on my whiteboard, and I leave her the similar note BEST DAUGHTER IN THE GALAZY on her whiteboard. Little sentiments go a long way.
