“I want to make my mark,’ he says.
But what target, I wonder, are you going to hit?”
We celebrated my husband’s 60th birthday last week!
After a family dinner of all of his favourites on the Thursday night: lasagne, various Italian side dishes and an Italian rum cake, (all made by yours truly!) we celebrated with friends on Saturday evening and even managed to outlast the youngsters on the dance floor!
As you can imagine, turning 60 causes you to stop and ask yourself a lot of questions, and my husband has certainly been doing so:
Am I living the life that I wanted to live?
Do I have the career, family and home that I wanted?
Have I created the LEGACY I intended to create?
As you might already know, due to the 2019 that I experienced, I have been asking myself these questions too, the main one being about what legacy I want to leave. (Here’s my Year in Review post in case you missed it.)
Regardless of whether my husband feels that he has achieved all he that he intended or not, there was one profound legacy of his that was revealed at his party. Four different male friends of his that I had asked to speak, all ended up saying the same thing: “He loves his family so much.”
Needless to say, the impact of that legacy of love for our children and for me is powerful.
My word for this year is “LEGACY” and my question for you today is:
What legacy are YOU creating this year?
