My parents on the other hand have done all their funeral pre-planning. I got a picture in my inbox of the what their final resting place will be. It was like a notice friends give you about what their next address will be. I am not sure what to think. It's not something I want to think about. Nice of them to be so organized about it though. It gives me a chance to look at it in a non emotional state. It might help when the time comes.
We are slightly more open about talking about death in my family than we are about talking about say...sex. I wonder what my brothers and sisters think about the periodic reminders as my Dad notifies them of the final arrangements. Maybe we'll talk about it when we get together for Mothers day. Maybe we won't. All we can do for sure is appreciate them in the moment and enjoy the family reunion.
be in the moment
Interesting topic for Good Friday...
