At my Daddy’s funeral visitation almost 10 years ago, a friend’s parents came. I had met Mrs. W before but not Mr. W. When Mrs. W. introduced me to Mr. W, she said, “This is the infamous, Laurel!”

If you look up the definition for infamous, it says well known for some bad quality or deed or wicked; abominable.

I wasn’t sure how to take it and still am not, but I chose not to be offended it. Still, what did she mean? What had she been told about me? Interesting…

What defines you?

Is it a disease? “I have diabetes.” Is it a person? “I’m Sam’s mom.” Is it an event good or bad? “I went through the Nashville flood.”

“I’m the sinner who…”

Maybe some or all things similar to these?

If you were to be introduced to someone, what would define you?

What do you want people to think when they hear your name or see you?
