As my attorney's office calls it - Will signing party - mine will be this week. My kids are almost ten - three almost ten year old triplets - so I am a little late in getting a will. But hey better now than never. My mom was over the other day while I went to parent teacher conferences for two of the three (of course they are perfect). When I got home, my mom and I were talking about the will. Sarah asked what a will is and I told her that it is for when people die so that things that we own go to the right things and people.
The right people are my three kids. Sarah's eyes went as big as saucers. I immediately assured her that I wasn't dying any time soon and calmed her down. But I also said calmly that death can come any time - getting hit by a bus etc.
Sure, sometimes I think about cancer and death - how could I not? I am not afraid of death - I know where I am going and that it will be peaceful, beautiful and no more illness. The thing I am most afraid of is leaving my little ones before they are ready to spread their wings and fly away to all that is before them. Gets me everytime I think about it. So I keep up the good fight and try not to think about it too much. I love them more than anything - so I am gettting my will done (finally) so they will be protected if I get hit by a bus. So I will go in next Thursday and have my will signing party with my attorney and my mom.
So if you are a parent or even if you are not and do not have a will yet, I have a great attorney (email me and I will get you his contact info). Get it done so that what you have goes to the people you love and want to protect. Otherwise, the state gets to decide - not a great choice. More later -
