  2. I think my greatest impact has been as a mother. I see what my daughters have grown up to be and how it is impacting my grandchildren. It's creating stronger more compassionate generations to come.

    Hugs,
    Laura

  7. Wow, that's a thought to ponder. I know some human lives on which I had an impact, but the greatest impact I think must be on the dogs and cats I rescued, who went on to live long, healthy and happy lives.

  8. Ultimately? Not big. Does it matter? Not the least little bit.

  9. Hmmm.. I really don't think we know what impact we have on others, we can only hope we have some and that it's good and positive. But we'd really need to ask others what their opinion is.. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

    (Your impact on me is good.. love your images and thoughts and what a good life you seem to live.)

  11. I like hearing back from former students a learning that I made a difference. One is never too sure as they walk out the door with their diploma in hand; it takes a while to let all the true lessons sink in and resurface at their real value .

    I also hope I am making an impact on our girls....but that is another one that will probably pay off better as time rolls on ;-)

  13. The hope, that people around me, understand that I try to make them feel good.

    Please have a good weekend you all.

  14. A good thought to have with an election coming up--Will a single vote have an impact? I think so...

    I hope you're doing well, and I hope your week is ending on a good note!

  15. Wow Michelle this is really thought provoking. I love all the comments. I will have to think about it.
    I hope my impact means something. B

  16. That is such a profound thought. If you can make someone smile while they are sad or help those who are less fortunate than you then I think you have made an impact. Have a happy weekend Michelle :)

  17. I would have to say it would be my niece. We had a big impact on each other.

  18. I'm not sure but very often even people as old as in their mid sixties come up to me and ask if I remember them. Hint: I was twenty two when I began teaching 17 and 18 year olds in high school social studies...:)

  23. This is a thoughtful quotes and question. Jackie Robinson was my oldest brothers favorite baseball player. He was the first African American to play professional baseball. He certainly made an wonderful impact on race relations and sports!

    I know I made an impact on many lives when I worked as nurse, and on my children as I raised them, and now I hope to have a good impact on my grandchildren when I move closer to them :)

  24. The beauty of it is-- in most cases, you'll never know. I like it that way.
