day 23: a way in which you want to be remembered

I want to be remembered...

as a breath of fresh air. Someone who makes others smile, who makes them laugh, who makes them feel lighter and happier. Someone who can maybe even help lighten their load a bit...someone who shines with Jesus' light, and brightens the days of those around her.

"Happiness is a perfume which you cannot pour on someone without getting some on yourself." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

I'm working on this, friends ;)

  3. Ahh, actually I have not! :( I mean, I know who he is and all, but someone once showed me that quote and I fell in love with it! He's one of those authors that I've always wanted to read, but just haven't yet :( Someday, though!! :D
