Hey, don’t get mad at me… it’s a fact of life. And nobody knows my tastes better than myself. If my ashes are going to be in something ‘forever’ then it better be something that I love! Can you imagine wearing a dress you hate for the rest of forever??!!! Anyway, since I am feeling good, I decided to do some online ‘urn shopping’. It sort of takes the fear out of it; besides I don’t want my children to have to make a decision about what I’d like to be in forever. Call me a control freak if you want…that’s Ok with me… but it’s going to be something that I really, really like!!!!!
So far the winners are all white with silver/pewter or maybe with a brass base and some white cloisonné. My absolute favorite isn’t big enough for me— only for someone 50 lbs. so now I have something to look for… And at least I have eliminated a whole bunch of urn styles that I do not like! And when I find ‘just the right one’ I might even buy it!
At lease no one will be ‘shopping under duress’.
Now for those of you that love me, I want you to understand something. I am not ready for the grave yet. I am just trying to get certain things in order as they approach me. I am feeling very well, I am doing very well and I expect to make that 6 year mark when my grandson walks into his first day of kindergarten! That means several more years of birthday parties for Grandbabies and Children and everyone!!!
