Small Heart Mummur

I was diagnosed with a small heart mummur 11 years ago when I was pregnant with my son.  Doctors told me it was small and it was nonthing to worry about.  My mother and her side of her family have Congestive Heart Failure.  I need to know, will I develope this problem when I get older.  I will be 40 this year.  I had a stress test, and the results were good.  My heart is strong and in good condition.   I am a very healthy woman occording to my doctor. I am just curious to know this.  Some People can have a small problem with their heart, like a small heart mummur and later in life develope problems, because of family history. At this time, my doctor can barely hear my mummur. Should I worry?
