This Week's prompt: Legacy
What is it that you want to be remembered for... and don't tell me you haven't thought about that!!!
I think all of us think about this... what is the difference we wish to make while we are here?
I really had NO clue until Jared (my oldest) was born... and I was 29 years old when that happened... and as soon as he was put into my arms I knew what my purpose was... I was born to be a mother... a mother SO much better than the one I was given. And the next 15 plus years was spent in doing everything... and I do mean EVERYTHING possible to make sure that my children did not have the childhood that I had and that they knew they were loved... NO matter what!!!
But then something happened! They grew up and didn't need me as much anymore. That is when I started writing.... and I discovered that was really my purpose in life.. to share stories of absolutely horrific things and have people read them. To be perfectly honest with all of you... I never expected people to read my books... silly ... .huh???
So now... I think that my legacy should be raising great kids... and I have already seen that they have become SO much more than I ever hoped to be... they are happy!!!! AND being the vessel that enables people to see the much darker side of people. I sure hope that does some good someday and that I am still alive to see it!!!!!
How about you? What do you want your legacy to be?
I would love to hear your comments, or read your post that is linked up... or better yet both!
