What do you want people to remember about you?

I am just sitting here thinking-yes I know that is dangerous lol. But I was just sitting here thinking about all the trials we go through in life and what is important to people these days, IT seems so far from what I really want out of life. All I really want is to be able to pay our bills, take the kids to a vacation now and again and just be happy and content and raise our children to the best of our ability. I do not want all this wordly stuff, do not get me wrong I like shiny things and big things but when I am gone that STUFF will not matter to me and when I am dead and gone what do I really want people to remember about me. Alot of times these days many people want to be remembered as being successful or owning all these THINGS. All I really want when I am gone is to be remembered as a devoted wife and loving mother. That i did my best and raised my kids to the best of my abilities. That I love the LOrd and tried to follow him. I have stumbled alot following him but I do try. What would YOU want people to remember about you??? IT is sad that this day and age many people miss out on the joys of parenthood all because they are so selfish that they think children will hinder them. They really miss out on the blessings. Yes, sometimes I do say or think wow what my husband and I could do if we didn't have kids or if we did not have so many but wow what we would miss out on!!!!!!!!!!! GOd gave me these kids, dunno why he chose me but I am so glad he did. Yes times do get hard and sometimes I get weary but I would not change my life for one split second. GOd has blessed me with so much even though my family has little we have all we need. I do not know what the Lord has in store for me in the future,weather it be more kids(if that is the case he better be talking to hubby lol) or just to raise the kids we have to his glory. I just always want to be able to stand back and see just how trully blessed I am. I have a WONDERFUL husband who has done so much for me, more than many people know. He is my rock, my prince charming. I have 5 wonderful blessings!!!! What more could a woman ask for???
