My baby girl and a legacy

So, clearly I will never get a movie made based on my blog, considering I am not consistent. This last week we past a milestone. We have passed the point of pregnancy where we lost Kamdyn Grace. I remember every detail of that day April 2010.  I remember the disbelief when they told me there was nothing more they could do to stop contractions. I remember how tiny she was, but how perfectly formed, I remember how much she looked like Will. Sometimes remembering is too much, sometimes it's just what I need. That little girl made a huge impact on our lives, and when Maddox gets here and we tell him about his sister, I hope that she will continue to make an impact on his life too. My baby girl who lived only seconds left a legacy, and that has got me to thinking.... If I were to die today, How would people remember me? Maybe that is a morbid question, but definitely one worth asking. I want people to remember me as a loving wife and mom. I want people to know that I am a Christian, and the things that could've shaken my faith has only grown it. I would hope that I have been a good friend, and teacher. So, I'm working on these things. I'm asking God to show me the areas that I need work on (trust me there are a lot).

I want to be more than just a better version of me. I want to be a better version of who God wants me to be. I don't know where that will lead, but I do feel a change within me. What's your legacy?
