Who am I?

Who am I?   I am a mother of four to three girls and a son who mean the world to me, a wife of a man I have known since I was 15 that let me grow up when I was so young and still loves me like the day we wed, I am a daughter to a woman who scares me for fear that I will lose my mind to a disease she has with no cure.

Who am I?  I am a friend who loves my friends dearly, I am a little sister to my big brother, I am an Auntie who loves to have gatherings with all her family to remember the very best of living and loving and creating memories to last all our lives.

 Who am I?  I am a want-to-be writer, a want-to-be photographer, I am a marginal cook who sometimes actually makes an amazing dinner and sometimes a laughable one too.

Who am I?  I am a lover of my puppies and kitties, I am a once-upon-a-time horseback rider, a big daydreamer, I am a attempt-to-be-gardener to my potted plants because that is all I can handle right now.

Who am I?  I am a woman on a journey upon a road that is not familiar, I am a gatherer of feelings, of hopes, of dreams still to come.  I am a nurturer to my family even while I hold back sometimes that need to still be "mommy" while they can make their own decisions and choices.

Who am I.... to you...?
         who will I you?
                what will I become...stronger, weaker, meeker, louder, quieter, fearful, fearless?

Lend me your arms, your hands, hold me, be my strength when I am weak, laugh with me when I am joyful, tell me a story, sing me a with me...always.

Beautiful. As are you.

And, I didn't know you are a mother to three girls and one son--just like me, except my little boy is not here yet!

It's amazing all the many factors in life that make us what we are...and we are ever evolving...

Loved this post.
