Do you Believe in Leaving A Legacy to your Friends & Loved Ones?

  1. I am working on doing just that for all whose hearts I have touched, and for all who have touched my heart.

    Fran, I think it is a highly individual thing.

    Some ppl like to remembered just as they were with no extra "to doo", while others have a real urge to leave a "special something" of themselves behind, to pass on to family members, etc.

    Some ppl feel that the person's life itself is the legacy... others yearn for something tangible to hold onto and close to their hearts.

    I say do what YOU feel in your own heart... you know yourself AND your family members best. Follow your gut feelings in this one. :kiss

    I am thinking the best way to leave a "legacy" is to live what you would want said about you after you are dead. I think it's more beneficial and honorable to leave the world a better place for your having been here---through your actions and good deeds...... means much more than any tombstone/monument or funeral ever could. JMO.

    Very well put, :smackingf Deb. And you are so right about that. But I did start 2 scrap books-- one for each of my girls so they could look at them and enjoy the memories of we three.

    i agree with deb.

    there's nothing more honorable than being spoken of honorably, admirably and respectfully.

    but if people want to say that i could talk a dog from a meat wagon, that's ok too.

    That sounds lovely, Franemtnurse. I'm sure they will be cherished by your daughters.
