When You See Me…

When you see me, I hope one can see I have an inner core that is gentle and quite meek. My exterior is strong, vibrant and built for resiliency…. Yet I often have fears and worries just like every other person.

When you see me, I hope one can see I am a proud mother, sister, daughter, and friend. I strive to be kind and love others daily. I am imperfect and willing to be open to an abundance of knowledge from those around me.

When you see me, I want you to know I often sit in silence and think how will my life progress? What’s next?

When you see me, I want you to know I love the quiet days I experienced while visiting my grandparents in the country…. Lots of trees and flowers… Life was a lot slower, and I could always reflect and find peace.

When you see me, I want you to know my heart is often filled with joy through music, reading and watching those special to me live life with no regrets. I continue to search for ways to continue to experience peace and joy daily.

When you see me, I want you to know I cry and feel sadness too. I am a human vessel on a journey that will continue to pursue happiness. When my days are filled with stress and hardship I go to my private place…. Silence… Solace moment to hear my inner voice speak to me ….. I am a private person often misunderstood by others …. Some may say I am rigid and unapproachable. I am often known to not get close to others quickly. I have to allow time and experiences to play out.

When I see me, I see a beautiful and quiet soul continuing to reach for the highest achievement…. I will continue to love myself so that I can love others.

  3. I can see exactly what you see…but I see something more. I see an inner core that has no fears and no worries. I see a mother of two young men tenaciously built with resilience to handle everything and anything life is willing to offer. You can be quiet at times, but even in your silence, a beautiful spirit roars to be heard. I have witnessed first-hand how great of a friend you can be to others. I wouldn’t expect anything less if you were my own sister. Your love heals most on first encounters and your life will continue to progress through your works and dedication to the prevention of child abuse. I was there when your heart poetically began to open and I plan to be a witness to all of your highest achievements. May God continue to bless the words you share with the world.
