What Do I Want To Be?

Whatever you are, be a good one.
-Abraham Lincoln

I wasn’t able to sleep last night. I got to sleep about midnight, and I woke up at 3:30 this morning.

I can’t just sit around and do nothing, so I grabbed the half bushel apples my husband bought, and I made homemade apple sauce. By 7:30, I had fifteen pints of applesauce, and I did a lot of thinking while working.

My granddaughter always calls me Lady, and I don’t look at it as disrespect. She loves me and does whatever she can to show me how much.

She is almost twenty now, and the most beautiful young woman I know.

She knows what she wants to do with her life. Her boyfriend is a woodworker and makes beautiful river tables. She makes jewelry out of rocks, and it is stunning.

I know she wants to be with him and work side by side.

It made me wonder what I want to be? I’m a copywriter, an SEO specialist, and I write books (After five years, they are beginning to sell). I’m a wife, a mother, a grandmother, and a great-grandmother, but somewhere along the line I forgot who I was.

I am on the way to making myself healthy, through watching what I eat, but I’m hooked on Chai tea. Way too many calories, but when it is cold in the morning, it is OHHHH so good.

then I wondered if I really need to know what I want to be, or who I am? I know who I am. I am happy being everything that has been gifted to me.

I was given many challenges in life, and I survived the. I went from being an unhappy wife with an unhappy husband, to a happy wife with a new husband who made me laugh and feel loved.

I found out that I am a happy person and I love the family I have. I think the greatest gift that anyone could have, is the gift of life. I don’t want to waste my life with a bunch of what-ifs.

I know who I am, and it took watching the sun come through my windows with the first light of dawn, and doing things that I enjoy the most. It took taking the things that some take for granted and turning them into something inviting and delicious.

I’ve been at a standstill with my weight, for several days now, but at least I’m not gaining. I really should give up the Chai tea, but it is my weakness, along with my husband, kids, and grandkids.

It’s such an amazing thing, to be loved and liked by those you love and like.

Have an amazing day, and thank you for reading.

Are you naughty or nice? Christmas is just around the corner. If you like naughty books, look for Christmas Only Comes Once a Year, and Mary Christmas, by Tawny Shade.
