I read an interesting question the other day at TheDailyPost. “What do you hope your children will say about you when they are grown?” Well, my children are already grown, so I got to thinking in terms of grandchildren. What do I hope my grandchildren will say about me? Of course, I hope they say I’m perfect, but now that I hear that word”perfect,” it sounds a bit boring.
So what is the lasting impression I hope to leave? I want to give this some thought. I don’t want to be casual or flippant. I know my current actions are already making an impression, but am I being mindless and arbitrary? I hope not. I want to be intentional, but remain spontaneous and fun-loving. So again I ask, “What do I want my legacy to be?”
I came up with the following ten things I hope my grandchildren say about me when they are grown.
1 – My Granny loved me more than anything.
2 – My Granny told me she loved me every chance she had.
3 – My Granny showed me she loved me every way possible, sometimes to my embarrassment. But I wouldn’t change a thing.
4 – My Granny had a great laugh that made everyone around her join in the laughter.
5 – My Granny had the best sense of humor and could always make me laugh.
6 – My Granny could celebrate any holiday or occasion better than anyone.
7 – My Granny loved to give presents.
8 – My Granny loved to feed people, especially loved ones at her big dining room table.
9 – My Granny loved to hug everybody and call them Sweetie.
10 – My Granny made me feel special.
I hope to act and become the Granny that produces such wonderful comments from her “grands.”
