I’ve been fiddling with my ‘Will’. Graeme finally signed his and at the time, I asked Sean about some little things I own that I’m considering putting in the Will so as not to have any issues when I step over the bridge.
So I was considering this all and decided to ask the kids (Taryn if you read this – send me your reply) what they’d like to have of mine that would ‘represent’ me to them. I’m still waiting for Jarod to reply, but Liam (funny guy that he is) said he’d like my glasses and a watch. Courteney, deep thinker and scheemer that she is, looks around then says to me, “Mom, I’d love your shoe collection, but I’m never going to wear a size 7 .” We had such a good giggle about that – but the truth is, my daughters are just little things next to me in size, but in personality and presence, they sure make up for it.
I find it sad that people can squabble over whats left behind, but I guess that’s just our greedy nature as humans. I had a terrible experience with this when my dad passed away and I so would hate for any of my children to feel that they were done in or made to feel less important and loved than another, so I’m keeping it as simple as possible and as fair as possible.
I’m sure for everyone, when you go to a friend our family members home, there’s something that signifies them to you and that’s what I want for each of my children to have … the thing that says ‘Mom’ to them when they see it.
Til later … keep it Simply Sassy.
