One day I will no longer be here... It is a fact of life that we all have to live with. When I am gone, I will have two very unique sons who will one day want to introduce me to their grand kids or maybe their great grand kids. They will talk about our Active Rain adventures, the therapy sessions from Hell, the therapist from Heaven, the people who were exceptional and kind to their mom and our family as we struggled to make ends meet and plan for the future. They will hear, read, see and feel how their mom really felt about life, love and business in general. Sometimes even with great specificity (LOL). They will learn that it is okay to be who you are whether people like you or not. They will learn that I was never ashamed to speak what I thought, or was ever ashamed of my quirks and issues, hoping they will realize they ought to celebrate their quirky sense of humor while dealing with their own issues as well.
They will have DVD diaries, digital film, and on-line audio-video blogs to share with their kids and grand kids about being a Realtor's kid. They will talk about how their mom drove and flew them all over this great nation and half way around the world to meet some of the kindest people she was blessed to ever know and joke that this was going on while she was teaching them how to become Realtors while Stephen still had his pampers on. They will read my best friends notes to me on my blogs, learn about the clients I helped to find homes, see their mom and dad dueling on the computers in the comment sections of Facebook and a host of other Internet social sites and will be the best of friends with their own AR buddies as we parents and our children all grow older together.
One day I will no longer be here... when that day comes, my legacy will be the love that I feel for my friends and family. It will be the appreciation I felt for the clients who trusted me with their own families as they transitioned though housing. It will be in full technicolor as well as black and white. It will be the best part of me for all the world to see, but especially for my sons. I blog because I enjoy it, and I enjoy having fun adventures with the little minions while we work through and live our lives. Everything that I do I do to prepare the way for my children. I have made a lot of mistakes in 43 years, will probably make more, but my kids are the best thing that ever happened to me and blogging about them fills me with joy.
My on-line legacy will be very small, but it will be very important to those who care about me and my family... It will be very important to my children when I am no longer around, for they will see that I shouted to the whole world how much they are loved.
