I wonder sometimes about what my legacy will be.

This weeks legacy is weatherstripping for my Mom's front door. It is a little thing that will mean a lot to her since the draft will no longer come through and chill her bones.

I think that most, if not all, the things I do for others are like that. Small things that will be forgotten. And I am fine with that.

I don't think it's the actual "things" he is talking about. I think it's the general intent and attitude behind the act of kindness.

Your legacy will be one of pleasant generosity and kindness. Placing others before yourself. If I should happen to outlive you, I think I will remember you like that. We've never met, but for all the years we've "known" each other, I can't remember a single time you were anything but good-hearted and amiable. (And sometimes a little wacky. Whistling )

“The things you do for yourself are gone when you are gone, but the things you do for others remain as your legacy.”

What a sweet thing to say! But "a little wacky"? Me? What a wonderful understatement. Rolling on the floor laughing

A little wacky, but exceptionally zany. (Better?)
