Last month, I had the privilege of being invited to a special celebration service to honor the mother of a friend. Her mother lived to be 102 1/2 years old and lived life to its fullest. This celebration service was a great reminder of what is important in life and a very moving experience. The theme was "Living the Dash" based on the poem by Linda Ellis titled "The Dash." It is not allowed to copy the poem here, so please see the poem at http://lindaellis.net/the-dash/the-dash-poem-by-linda-ellis/.
I will post other wonderful readings from that celebration and will name the posts the same as this one to indicate what they are. I was so moved by everything at the service that I have to share here so we can all be reminded that we all need to live a full and meaningful life, no matter what the size of our dash ends up being.
