    In my defense, I recall the grand idea of the memorial ash glass pendant being floated past me sometime during midterms or finals during college. So, you know, I think my lack of enthusiasm at the time is at least partly understandable! And I would never abandon you to Goodwill, I promise.

    I love it, just laughed and laughed.

    Don’t you dare burn me though:)

    I LOVE the title and the idea of being a glass ball. Though with my temper, I’d probably roll myself off of the shelf and break. Then, my son would be trying to glue me back together again, or maybe he would just get out the vacuum.
    Thanks for the laugh!

    I NEVER knew I could come back as a pretty/eccentric decoration. I’m putting that in my will…like right now. Oh, wait…I don’t have a will. Is writing it here good enough? Laughed through this post. 🙂

    I just realized my parents are hoarders. And I collect lots of things. Kind of weird random things. Like French medical equipment from the turn of the century. Bones. Coins. Crystals. My place kind of looks like a mad scientist/medicine man/art studio. Which I have heard also sums up my personality.

    Hmm. Part of me finds the idea of being a glass ball kinda cool, and part of me finds it kinda creepy. But then again, my mother has my childhood dog’s ashes in an urn in their guest bedroom. And knowing my kids, they would break me-as-a-glass-ball within minutes of receiving me.

    LOL I love how you went from rugs to glass figurines to glass balls to becoming one when you’re dead. I kinda like the idea. I have my last two dog’s ashes because how can I throw them out? Creepy I know but they’d be cool glass balls! HAHA

    Somehow, I love the idea of being turned into a glass ball and discovered in a rummage sale. It just seems fitting!

    I hope you convince your family!

    This got discussed recently when my mother in law died. I really didn’t want to keep her on the mantel! Her daughter has the dog in a beautiful oak box on the shelf in a loo – I suggested she would end up there, with her dog – and that got rid of that idea!

If you don't comment, then I'm just talking to myself -- and I do too much of that already.
