Recently a family member was very ill and things didn’t look good. I asked a friend, that’s family, for wisdom and she shared some (it was amazing) and it jogged a memory about a class assignment I had in college.
It was an uncomfortable and kind of morbid assignment. I had to ask someone to write a eulogy as if I had just passed way. Then we read them out loud to the class. It was eye opening to hear how my friend that’s family felt about me.
I was glad for the experience. We often don’t say the things to the important people, what they mean to ourselves while their still here. This opened the door to write and read something like this to my family member by saying what was on my mind and heart in a kind way. It tied up some loose ends and reminded me of some fun memories.
Be open to saying what’s on your mind kindly (if possible), while they’re still here.
