15 Minutes to Live

I’ve just discovered that I have 15 minutes to live.  Wow, how can I express to those of you who have affected my life so much and what you’ve done for me in such a small amount of time.  I guess with time ticking away I will keep it simple and simply say “thank you” to each one of you.  In some way or perhaps many ways you have left an indelible mark upon me which has helped mold me into the woman I am today.

A few of you meant your deeds for evil, but I thank you too because in the struggle, drama, and backlash from dealing with you, I am still a better person for it all.  Do I have any regrets? That I never had children, I guess that would be my one regret.  I’m not leaving any little person/people behind to carry on my legacy.  But perhaps with the hundreds of children that I have taught throughout the years, some of them will remember the pearls of wisdom that I tried to give them.  I hope they will take these things and use them for good.  I hope that they will know that even though at times they frustrated the shit out of me, that I truly do love each and every one of them.  I also hope they go on to do big things in life and most importantly, add value to the world.

Since I am running low on time, again to my family and dear friends – I love you.  To the man who I have spent most of my time with the past couple of months – I have thoroughly enjoyed it.  I wish you peace, blessings, and happiness now and forever 🙂

Oh wait, one last thing…PLEASE DO NOT have me in the casket with my hands folded across my chest.  I hate that look, it’s extremely weird and creepy.  Fold ’em down lower…thanks.  Oh, and put a flower in my hair, on the left side.  A white rose! Okay I’m signing off now so I can go eat a Snickers and have a vodka cranberry for the road.  And I’m out…

    Wow, I am in awe, but impressed with your ability to express yourself about the love you have for your craft.
