As the time of grief and memories ebb, death leaves behind a mirror reflecting questions about our own life.
While preparing a eulogy, I found peace in these lines attributed to Mother Theresa:
“It is not how much we do,
but how much love we put in the doing.
It is not how much we give,
but how much love we put in the giving.”
One theme I found in my reflections is that death should be motivating for the living because we can still choose how much love we put into the next moments in time.
