What makes me, me? This seems to be a question that I could probably spend hours answering. I think my personality is probably the number one thing that makes me, me. I am about as individualistic as they come. I am the last person to follow the crowd. I tend to make my own path. Those who choose to follow my path, well they are in for an interesting ride. So what is my personality? Where shall I begin? I am loud and obnoxious, yet I am caring and sensitive. I love to be in loud and lively situations, but when given the opportunity I am quite content with a glass of wine and some Claude Debussey playing on my stereo. I am the shy girl that keeps to herself until the moment arises that I will talk your ear off with my random thoughts that, to those who do not know me, may have some wondering if I am a loon. I also believe that my children make me, me. I never saw myself as the “soccer mom”, the “T-ball mom” or the mom that teaches her children to catch and clean fish, but guess what? That is who I am. I don’t regret a single minute of the person that they have made me. In fact I embrace the fact that my children are able to often times get me to live outside of my box. They have taught me to see the beauty in things and to always question what you don't understand. The biggest lesson they have taught me is to love and cherish every moment, not just the good. I believe my faith in God has also defined who I am. I know that every blessing and gift I have been given, as well as the struggles and hardships, they have all made me the strong, relentless individual that I am. So who among you is willing to join me on this crazy ride…?
