I’m on a Roll
January 13, 2014
2 weeks in to this year and I have read 2 books! Go me! Latest selection: “This Time Together” by Carol Burnett. It is a collection of short, mostly humerous, anecdotes from Ms. Burnett’s career. I greatly prefer light, fluffy reading and this really fit the bill. I had half the book finished by the time we reached our destination on a short road trip.
Much like John Green’s “An Abundance of Katherine’s“, I found my favorite quote in this selection near the end of the book. Ms. Burnett’s daughter Carrie passed away in 2002, and this is Carrie’s description of what she left behind.
Our legacy is really the lives we touch, the inspiration we give, altering someone’s plan–if even for a moment–and getting them ot think, cry, laugh, argue. More than anything, we are remembered for our smiles; the ones we share with our closest and dearest, and the ones we bestow on a total stranger, who needed it RIGHT THEN, and God put you there to deliver.
