52 Lists week #19: The Things You Want to be Known For

This week's list: the things you want to be known for was pretty easy for me to write. 

It may sound a bit morbid but I thought about what I'd like people to say about me at my funeral or when looking back on my life and thinking over what I was like. 

When it comes right down to it I'm a pretty simple person with simple goals and ideals.

I want to be known as having been:

  • a wonderful and loving wife
  • a giving and loving mother
  • a fantastic teacher and leader
  • a giving and caring friend
  • a compassionate person
  • an intelligent person
  • a hard worker

Others in this series:


  1. I love this list....you gave me something to think about.
    God bless

    1. I'm so glad. That's what I love about these 52 lists challenge; they really make me think.

  2. This is a great list! Thank you for sharing.

  3. beautiful list, I once heard a story of leaving a legacy when we die. This was not financial but what we wanted to leave for all to remember

    1. Thank you; that is definitely the kind of legacy I'd like to leave behind. One filled with wonderful memories and lots of love.

  4. A touching list. I have a feeling you are already these things :)

  5. Such attributes to achieve. If everyone strived to be these things what a wonderfu world it would be. Love this.

  6. Yes, yes and yes to all of these. I often think about what I would want my kids to remember about me if I died...it does sound morbid, but it's really not! It helps me to be a better person.

    1. I think so too. Knowing how I want to be remembered helps me decide how I want to act today.

  7. I sometimes think it is morbid too, but it is what helps me to think about how I show myself to others and what I want them to truly see.
