Our theme this month is Honoring Legacies! Whether we think about it or not, we all leave a legacy or things we pass on to others. What do you want those things to be? How do you want to be remembered? Are you living your life in the way you want to be remembered? I encourage you to consider these questions and hope you find that it helps you to live your life more fully now. I also encourage you to honor your deceased loved ones legacies. Over the next few weeks, we’ll talk about honoring our loved ones’ legacies and our own.
