That old “brown crayon”
The one that is trying to turn yellow
Wait – is she really trying?
What constitutes trying?
The one that wants to someday be “that couple”
You know – the couple that adores each other
They still share laughter together and respect one another
Even after 50, yes 50, years of marriage
The one that tries to help others by “just being me”
That hopes to influence someone that struggles
To save that someone from her own prison called her mind
The one that knows she is so much more powerful than “it”
That crazy, obnoxious “soccer mom”
The one that nobody wants to sit next to
The one that is so hard on her daughter
Encouraging, cheering, yelling and celebrating
The one with the few good friends
The friends that listen, are thoughtful, and sometimes lend a shoulder
The kind that understand and support you
The friends that she is fortunate to have
The one that so badly wanted to have a thyroid problem
Why else could she be gaining so much weight?
The one with zero self control
Sugar – her treat, her indulgence, her love
The one that enjoys running for exercise and group therapy
She loves it but her schedule has kept her from it
The one that believes there is nothing better than a runner’s high
She misses it and will be back as a permanent groupie soon
The one who can’t sit still, no matter the occasion
Vacation is no exception
There is no time for relaxation
That is just how she rolls
The one that wants people to realize that “everyone is a someone”
That man is surely someone’s son, brother, nephew, friend
How do you want your relatives and friends to be treated?
Can’t we all just be caring and not so judgmental?
The one that has a damn elephant that takes up residence
The kind of elephant nobody wants nor discusses
The stronghold is just too tight
Though, it may be loosening a bit – let’s hope
The one with an adorable niece, amazing mom, and opposite sister
Together they have created fond memories
Many more to come
Her niece will soon be a big sister
The one that cautiously shares a slice of her life daily in March
The vulnerable one that hopes to become a better writer, a better person
The one that considered not slicing this year due to other commitments
The one that was inspired by a fellow slicer
That SHE is ME and I AM BACK!!!!!
