What Will They Say About You?


A man stood to speak at the funeral of a friend.

He referred to the dates on her tombstone from beginning to the end.

He noted that first came her date of birth and spoke the following date with tears, but said what mattered most of all was

the dash between those years.

That dash represents all the time she spent alive on earth.

For it matters not how much we own, the car…the house…the cash, but what matters most is how we spend our dash.

So, when your eulogy’s being read, with your life’s actions to re-hash,

Would you be proud of the things they say about how you spent your dash?
