If you'd drop dead today, what would you leave behind that is significant to the world besides the children you raised?

Not diminishing the accomplishment, because everybody knows how much hard work goes into a healthy family life. But if we just take away family matters, what would your "footprint"on the world be?

  • But who cares if it's "just family" that remembers you once gone? Family matters more than anyone. I really don't care if there's no one that remembers me once gone other than family. I want my kids to say"She was the best mom ever, she put us first always and there was nothing she wouldn't do for us." I want dh to say(if he's still alive) that I was the best wife he could have had and that he was proud of me as a mother.

  • I guess the impression I leave on those who know me. And whatever my footprint is on the world wide web at that point, haha.

  • Nothing. Nothing at all. No career, no real accomplishments. No real outstanding talents. Once I'm dead and gone, only my family and my closest friends will remember me. Once they're will be as though I never existed.

  • I imagine nothing. I'm sahm and really only hang around my family. I do massive amounts of laundry and other housework a week so that dh can focus on work pretty much and relax at home other than helping with kids.

  • Well I hope that if the plot of it's "a wonderful life" was thrown at me that I would have changed someone's life. That I made even a little bit of significance in someone's life.

  • I'm a working mom, but even then I feel like I'm easy to replace. I believe everybody is. You see that a lot when people retire. So, bedsides two poems I wrote AGES AGO .... the principal of my school still likes to read them to the pupil when they hand out the diplomas ... I can't think of anything either.

  • I write poetry too, but I haven't had any really published yet.

  • I've got a few publications under my belt, so I've done my little bit to move my field of research a little bit forward. That is nice to think about.
