This is a question that has haunted me for all the seasons of my life. I still don't know. I envy people that do. This isn't a preachy article. I am sure you had enough of my words. I am still trying to understand myself, find my place in this life, this world. I grew up in a large family, and I love my brothers and sisters, maybe sometimes not too much, but I do feel blessed to know that no matter how the miles separate us and even time itself, when we are together, it seems like no time at all has passed. Oh, how family can set you right and tell it like it is. A brother or sister knows you better than most. Even when you think you are too big for your britches, a sister can put you down a peg or two.

Another time I was a singer. Or a princess. But I was never the flower. I wanted to be the star! I even made up a song and sang it for my class. They said my voice was really pretty and even the teacher clapped. I seem to thrive at that time. That is the girl I am. Happy in my heart. Singing, creating, being me.. I am sometimes misunderstood. Sensitive, a bit quiet, but other times I am fun loving and silly, compassionate and playful.
