This is Me

A little bit of me
Goes a long way
Lucky you get to see today
How this came to be

I grew up sheltered and shy
I don’t know why
I was always quick to cry
Quiet and self-conscious, oh my

Then came along my high school years
I finally broke out of my shell
It was only a matter of time that would tell
How far I put away my old fears

I’m a married mother of two
Who always has something to do
Yet I always make time for you
Forever open to trying things new

Practical jokes and a funny line
My goal to make others happy and smile
Keeping my friends and family on their toes is my style
Occasionally spirited by a glass of wine

My caring and sensitivity side shows
As my open mind and heart always grows
To come to me for anything, everyone knows
Or just to read my words where compassion flows

Best of all is to myself I am true
Learning from the past and things I once knew
Living my life for me in all that I do
So I may love myself and love you too

    Glad you liked it Andrea; sounds like we do have a lot in common. I just had the past two weeks of severe back pain; after a lot of testing, doctors finally found a disc protrusion. I am loosening up a little and they pain is gone for now; it hurt so bad I thought I had kidney stones or something else... Yes, popcorn I could eat every day!!! Goodnight, my friend!

    Hey we have a lot in common. I was shy at first too, and I have two kids like you. WEll, mine are grown , very grown now! Thanks again for the win. I DO love Samantha and also Jeanie the genie! Glad to meet a fellow popcorn lover. I rarely do this, but I was so sad the other day, I had a whole bucket of popcorn at the movie. Then I got the refill (large one) and took it home with me!
