Legacy

So my mom over-thinks things just as much as I do. Perhaps that's where I got it from . . .

Ever since she found out that the bear was on his way, she has been consumed with trying to figure out what she wants him to remember her by - what she wants to teach him. There are so many things that a parent, grandparent, friend, or random stranger can teach someone.

What one thing did your parent teach you?
My mom taught me the importance of a promise.
My stepdad taught me how to joke (dish it out and take it).
My father taught me how weak anyone can become if you let yourself.

My mom wants to teach the bear that he is loved.

It's an interesting thought. What would you want your legacy to be to your children? Is this even something you can pick?
