more thought-provoking

Lately I’ve been looking at the files on my computer through a new filter…. “If I died anytime soon, this is what people would see of me.”

I was looking through my list of word documents – recipes, writings, Bible studies, camp stuff, church stuff, crafty stuff – and our list of login info: usernames and passwords to all the different websites that I use. I’ve got lists and calendars in excel, and addresses and stuff in access, and a whole slew of favorites online. And I try to keep it all orderly. There are a lot of parts of me for someone to pick up after. I do hope that Roger would keep my email account going, because a year or so ago, I found a website where I sent myself an email that I’m supposed to receive 10 years from the sending date.

I love order, but I live a pretty haphazard life. When I die, I don’t want to leave behind clutter and chaos.

About ruthie.voth

Wife of one, mother of four, friend of many. Lover of details, color, good conversations, finding balance, and being honest. Passionate lover of a well-crafted sentence - even more so if it's witty. Weird blend of cynical optimist. I'm the worst kind of woman. I'm high maintenance, but I think I'm low maintenance. Somehow, people still love me. Must be grace.
