Leave A Legacy of Gratitude!


I want to leave a legacy to my family! I have thought about this for a long time now, and I want to leave a legacy of gratitude to my family. I want them, when they think back on me, to think of gratitude, kindness, and love. But I want it to go further than that, I want it to fundamentally change the core of my family! I want generations to come to be affected by my choices today and we know as a rule that is how this works. My family will indeed be affected by what I do today.

We know that children raised in families of negativity, in general, have a higher chance of being the same way- no this is not a steadfast rule!!  But you certainly have a greater chance of having a future life filled with negativity if you’re raised surrounded by negativity, right? OK.

So I want to live my life in such a way that it trickles down and affects my children, my grandchildren and generations beyond them.

Be the change you want to see in the world!  It works. Do it!

April 1st! Day of Love!

images loveToday is a day of love! I know some of you think it is really a day of playing jokes on others….( not me! I have learned my lesson!) but I will always look at this day as a day of love.

My parents married on this day 55 years ago!  44 years later their granddaughter (my daughter) got married! They are all still married and I am so proud of them! My parents now have 3 adult children and 3 children in love (spouses), they have 7 grandchildren and 4 grandchildren in love (spouses) and 11 great-grandchildren! If you are keeping count that is 30 of us, including the originals!  What a legacy!

Our daughter has 5 of those great-grandchildren!  She is definitely on course to outdo her grandparents!

So you can see how today is a day of love, right?  Always will be!  And in the future I think I will keep it solely as a day of love and forget the April fools stuff!  LOL

Have a great day!

Keep Her In Your Heart………….

An amazing lady passed away on May 14th,2012

She was loved by many and will be missed.

She was Grandma to more than her own grandchildren.

Children who are now adults…and their children….. knew her as Grandma.

Could there be any greater legacy?  Maybe…but this one is hers, and her family’s.

God Bless them all.
