My affairs in order

Last year I had several moments when the thought of dying young over came me with fear. I decided to do something about it. I started drinking green smoothies regularly, but I also decided to prepare heirlooms for my boys.

I typed out the advise I plan on teaching my boys when they are older. There are sections for driving, college, working, dating, marriage, family, prayer and scriptures. I then compiled the pages into little books for each son.

Next I wrote a letter to each boy explaining what dress and piece of jewelery I'd like to leave them when I'm gone. I included the stories behind each item. I know it seems silly spending time thinking about stuff like this, but I haven't had anymore panic attacks.
