What do you remember?

I read a devotion in the Upper Room that concluded requesting a prayer for those who have had a limb amputated.  I paused for a moment and concluded that I did not know anyone who had lost a limb.

About 30 seconds later I remembered my maternal grandmother.  I felt guilty for a moment for not having thought of her immediately, because she holds a very special place in my heart.  Why did I not think of her?  …simple… I don’t remember her as an amputee.  I remember her as a very loving person, with a beautiful smile, a firm hug, and a huge heart who loved me dearly.  That is what I remember first and foremost about her.

As I paused a little longer, there are others that came to mind, and again, it was personalities that made these people memorable, not their physical condition.

What will others remember of me?  … of you?
