Balance Sheet of Life!

Got this via email forward from my SIL, Monica. Ponder on this and hope you enjoy it!

BALANCE SHEET OF LIFE

Our Birth is our Opening Balance!
Our Death is our Closing Balance!
Our Prejudiced Views are our Liabilities
Our Creative Ideas are our Assets

Heart is our Current Asset
Soul is our Fixed Asset
Brain is our Fixed Deposit
Thinking is our Current Account

Achievements are our Capital
Character & Morals, our Stock-in-Trade
Friends are our General Reserves
Values & Behavior are our Goodwill
Patience is our Interest Earned
Love is our Dividend
Children are our Bonus Issues
Education is Brands / Patents

Knowledge is our Investment
Experience is our Premium Account
The Aim is to Tally the Balance Sheet Accurately.
The Goal is to get the Best Presented Accounts Award

I really like this post. It's true, of course, but many do not believe it.Being a mother who tries very hard to instill virtues and morals in my children, and to lead by example, well.... let's just say it aint easy in the world we live in.

And on your post about funerals... yes, joy and love are to be shared with people you love before they are gone. And I believe that we should share their lives with others who loved them when they are gone... remember the good and rejoice in the peace they have found in where ever it is they go when they leave this world, because I know it can only be a better place than this.
I am glad your mother loved you enough to understand you were not disrespecting your granny, but honoring her in a way that you felt was best.
We can only do what we feel is right, and hope that others around us love us enough to let us do so.
Easter is a day when I think of those I love who have gone on and are waiting for me, in whatever place they may be... and hope that when my time comes I will have earned the right to be there too.

God Bless....
