I loved Jesus
that I was a great wife
the best mom possible
With all the death I have experienced in my life there is lots of talk about "how" certain people lived their life.
I am told all the time that there was no doubt, my dad loved us kids more than anything.
My mom was only strict because she wanted us to grow to be responsible adults.
Grandma loved Jesus and just wanted to go home to him.
However, a long with those great things, I am overwhelmed by the negative that took over their lives (or death).
My dad is more well known for his suicide than for his love for his children.
My mom is currently more well known for the drugs that overtook her life than for the good she did for us.
My great grandmas death created a wedge in our family that is still there years after her death.
My prayer is that more positive things are remembered about me than negative. I don't want to be remembered for my past, the infedelities, lies, divorce. I want to be remembered for the future, my love, my commitment, my parenting.
What type of legacy do you want to leave behind? If you were to die today, what would you be remembered for? Think on that for a little bit today?
