Things I want to be remembered for....

I was reading something earlier today that prompted me to write this little piece...the questioned posed was: What do you want to be remembered for? 

I had never thought about that before...have you? After spending a fair share of the day pondering that question, here is my answer: 

I would want to be remembered for:

<> Being a good mom, despite my failings. I am not perfect, but I know that I did the best I could.

<> Being the best friend that I could be...always being there when my friends need me, mentally and emotionally.
<> Being compassionate, understanding, forgiving, and gentle spirited.
<> Having touched peoples lives in a positive way...leaving with them a part of me that somehow made their lives different....bearable.
<> Being a good writer, someone who expressed their thoughts, feelings and beliefs in a way that others could understand and perhaps agree with. 

<> Always trying to be kind, even if I disliked the person; being the bigger person and forgiving them for the things they have done against me or others. 

 <> Making life seem less daunting for others when they were them a new perspective that they might not have seen otherwise. 

<> Being someone that was thought of as being special and unique in my own way. 

<> Just being myself...having been true to every facet of my life. 

These are some of the things that I hope that I will be remembered for when I've passed on from this world. (Not that I am expecting to any time soon...!) 

My question to you is: What do YOU wish to be remembered for? 

Thanks for reading!


  1. In my eyes, you've succeeded in your hopes! And, yes, you'd better stick around for a loooong time! :-)

    I'll have to think about what I want to be remembered for...hmmm....

  2. LOL

    There's another topic for your want to be remembered for teaching people how unsanitary life can be!

  3. haha - yep, that's what I'm definitely good for! I'm going to turn the world into germaphobes!!! mua ha ha
