  • I hope they say "Man, my mom was awesome." I want them to remember how much I loved them and that I tried to always do what was best for them.

  • I think often about the legacy I will leave my children.

    I hope my children remember that I loved them beyond life. That I placed them above all else. I hope they see in me a woman they want to be like - someone to look up to and admire. I hope they can honestly say that though mom was strict and tough as nails - she loved them beyond words and they knew it. I want them to see in me someone who is real and who knows what is most important in life. That people matter above THINGS. That I would fight for what is right - in a dignified and straightforward manner - and I was willing to fight to the death for each one of them - even if THEY were the person I had to fight sometimes. I hope they see in me what my true heart is - a woman who loves Christ and my family.

    LOL I told you, I've thought about this a lot - but I have chronic health issues for which there is no cure.... so these things play on my mind.

  • I want my dd to say "remember when Mom used to dump the laundry out of the basket onto us and it was so warm...remember when she drove 2 hrs to camp because I forgot to pack underwear"...I want her to think of the times I told her no and made her do what was best for her no matter how mad she was. When my grandpa died we had a remember when dinner instead of a funeral. brought out coolers an beer and had great food and laughed and cried and celebrated his life! I was just thinking of the stories my dd may remember and the things I hope she remembers..and the embarrassing stories I hope she doesnt share LOL
