Who Am I?

Who Am I?

I am many things to many people.

I am a daughter, born to two of the most wonderful parents a girl could ever ask for. They always make me feel loved and special. If I find half of the happiness and love they have in each other after all these years, I will consider myself a very lucky woman.

I am a sister, to a younger brother who could not be more opposite to me if he tried. Yet, finally, we have found common ground in the birth of his son. We have learned to love and respect each other again after years of family problems and his issues with addiction.

I am a girlfriend, to a man who came into my life when I least expected it. He has stood by me, and I have stood by him through good times and bad. He loves me for who I am. He takes care of me in so many ways and my heart swells when he is in the room.

I am an aunt to the most precious, beautiful boy God could ever bless a family with. He came into all of our live like an angel from heaven, right at the point when it seemed my family had fractured beyond repair, riddled and beaten down by the pain and codependence of addiction.

I am a niece, cousin, friend, student, and employee as well.

But I am also more than these roles that I play in my life.

I am a good listener
I am compassionate
I am friendly
I am funny
I am smart
I am caring
I am a lover
I am a fighter


After everything I have endured in my life, above all, I am grateful and happy to be in this place, enjoying my journey and becoming a better person.

    I love this post! It is one that most of us, even though we’re out of the thirty something, can relate to. Your ensight is gracious and to the point in showing us the many faceted sides of ourselves.

    Aww, this gives me the warm fuzzies. It’s so nice to look around and see just how much you are valued.

      I just love talking about my family because I feel like we have been through so much and still have so much love. A lot of people don’t have that and I try to be grateful.

    This is such a great post. And what a little cutie you have for a nephew! Sometimes we get so wrapped up in ourselves that we neglect the other people in our lives. Looks like you are doing a great job remembering those you love who love you back! 🙂

    I found your blog through the Donkey tribe and I am glad I did. I added you to my reader. Your nephew is a cutie!
