Legacy
I hope that you are suitably re-charged after the half term break.  Today’s thought or rather question is prompted by a couple of recent leisure activities: a visit to a National Trust house; and a touching film titled, ‘What we did on our holiday’.  
 
When viewing a grand home of a past era it’s easy to picture how status and property were, and often still are, held in high esteem.  Contrastingly the film, without giving away the plot, movingly illustrated how family relationships and memories are so much more important than monetary value or estate.
 
We all leave a legacy of some kind and an awareness of this can inspire and affect our day to day work. So the question to ask is, “What kind of a legacy do I want to leave?” 
 
      ‘Carve your name on hearts, not tombstones.  A legacy is etched into the minds of others and the
       stories they share about you.’  Shannon L. Alder

      ‘Instead, store up your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy them, and thieves
       cannot break in and steal them. Your heart will always be where your treasure is.’ 
                                                              Matthew 6:20-21 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

      ‘No legacy is so rich as honesty.’  William Shakespeare
