A little bit about me

This is one of the hardest things I have ever written. 

Shall I let you know that I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, auntie, friend, colleague. That I work, volunteer, read, write, and draw (badly). That I love to cook and try to offset it by doing lots of walking. That I gather family and friends together at my table as often as I can. That I do my best. This is all true. 

But it says nothing of the road traveled. The great joys, deep sorrows, mistakes made, proud accomplishments, experiences learned from, moments that I wish to but can’t take back. That I have felt the light step of true happiness and the heavy middle of the night questioning. The many dreams that have come true and the heart that yearns for those still to be fulfilled. This too is all true. 

And, if you asked those who know me well, they would say that I have a positive outlook. That I am very optimistic by nature. And there would likely be some eye rolling and teasing involved. I am definitely a “glass full” person. This, perhaps above all else, is true.
