The Talk, Wagoner, Oklahoma

This morning as I was driving into work the thought came to my mind “what would I do if I my husband was called home to Heaven today?” What if I received the unthinkable news? Would I be ready?Do I really know what his wishes are? As I tried to escape these thoughts that just seemed to want to stay the tears began to flow. The pain that would come when that unexpected day arrives would in my eyes be more than I could take. Although Jason and I are very blessed and feel very fortunate to be able to care for God’s children and to celebrate their lives at the end here at the Shipman home, this is not a topic that we just discuss. But after the rough drive into work this morning I decided to give this talk a try with Jason. It was very interesting to hear what he expected to be done, who he wanted to serve as pallbearers, music and right down to who he would want to speak over him. It became obvious to me that the hardest talk to have is the most important talk to ever take place. I encourage you as your with your loved ones take the time to discuss with them what your wishes are. We all know that the day will come when we will leave earth and transition into eternity. Let your voice be heard..

God Bless You..
