I Am

I am 36 today.

And just like any other number - whether it be the number on a scale, the number of friends you have or the number of likes you have - it's part of who I am but not all of who I am.

I am a daughter.

I am a sister.

I am a wife.

I am a mother.

I am a friend.

I am a painter of windows - pumpkins, rainbows, ghosts, hearts - we do it all.

I am a laugh out loud, throw water in your face, mess-makin' kind of gal.

I am a quiet, keep to myself, read a novel a day, sometimes introvert.

I am a quick to think, quick to talk, quick to act type leader.

I am a homebody living three streets from my childhood home that dreads ever leaving this place.

I am a obsessive consumer of Diet Vanilla Cokes from Sonic.

I am an avid watcher of Parenthood, Downton Abbey and Nashville.

I am one who craves interaction and dialogue and meaningful discussion, I thrive on debate.

I am one who would rather look ten years ahead rather than ten minutes ahead.

I am a dreamer.

I am a writer.

I am a rather dramatic soul at times.

I am a child of God.

I am a weepy, emotion-driven worshipper centered on Christ and His love for us all.

I am a dancer.......when Aretha Franklin or Carole King is playing.

I am strong when I need to be.

I am a Wenger, Kossler, Codispoti mix.

I am 36 today........and surprisingly?

I am proud of that number and all the years I have lived, thus far, to be who I am.  Every year has gone into this year - making me who I am and growing me to be this person.  I am far from done and far from perfect.  And so I look forward to the next year and all those that follow..........wondering who will I be in ten? fifteen? twenty years from now.

Now I ask............who are you?
