Thoughts for Success: Mothers Don’t Just Leave a Legacy – They Are a Legacy

Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful mothers of the world. When I think of my own mothers (I’ve been blessed to have two) words cannot capture their meaning.

Thoughts for Success: Mothers Don’t Just Leave a Legacy – They Are a Legacy

Mothers don’t just leave a legacy. They are a legacy. We often think of a legacy as that which a person has left behind. The mother who gave birth to me, Marise, died at 48 and the legacy she left behind still influences me today. She’s a huge influence on the legacy I’ve aimed to share with registered nurses i.e. to never wait to pursue your dreams.

Legacy is also a living pathway that guides us even while a person is alive. My other mother, Blanche, has been a living legacy in my life since I was fifteen-years-old. Though we’re physically separated during the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re never apart in spirit.

Mothers influence our identify, core values, ambitions, attitudes, the way we love – our every waking moment. I have been doubly blessed to have two loving mothers. My goal is to honor their legacies with my own.

Happy Mother’s Day,
Vickie L. Milazzo, RN, MSN, JD
