It’s what we have to do.
We have no choice.
But is that how we are judged?
“We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.”
Sir Winston Churchill
Dedicated to the sacred memory of Suzanne Hart.
Imagine being remembered for your smile.
Imagine being remembered for the way you lit up a room.
Imagine being remembered for the positive life force that you brought with you wherever you went.
No need to imagine…it’s her legacy.
There is so much about her work ethic, her work efforts and her work accomplishments that I could write. I could list her work legacy and fill columns with projects that will always be associated with her. But that is how she made a living.
The smile; the warmth is how she made a life. And how she helped us make ours.
“The purpose of life is a life of purpose.” Robert Byrne
She followed her heart. And Hart to Heart she shared it.
Her love of horticulture – growing beautiful things – sharing them was core to her soul. She followed that passion. Made it her own. Took time off to learn more and then shared the learning and the passion with her friends, making their lives that much more beautiful.
Bringing beauty into the world is a purpose – a special purpose.
“It is not how much we do, but how much love we put in the doing. It is not how much we give, but how much love we put in the giving.” —Mother Teresa
I’d only add – it’s how much love we get back – without asking – because of the unconditional love we gave to the giving.
May Suzanne’s way too short in time but incredibly long in purpose life be a blessing and an inspiration to all.
