Encouragement for the week

As I grow older I want to be known as.....
thoughtful rather than gifted
loving versus quick or bright
gentle over being powerful
a listener more than a great communicator
available rather than a hard worker 
sacrificial instead of successful
reliable not famous
content more than driven
self-controlled rather than exciting
generous instead of rich
and compassionate more than competent 

That's my prayer, is it yours?

Ive been thinking about something similar... about what I would like written on my tomb stone or obituary...the words "she was a generous friend to all". A little bit morbid...but more an inspiration to myself to live this way now as a mantra so to speak. But I like all of these characteristics too.
