Definitions of Me

"I took a deep breath and listened to the old bray of my heart.  I am.  I am.  I am." 
~Sylvia Plath

"I do not define myself I have found this to be true.  It is all the experiences and the people I love that do."

I am a chaser of words
I am a daughter
I am a hardworker
I am a sister
I am a singer of songs
I am a mother
I am a people pleaser
I am a grandmother
I am a searcher of meaning
I am a cousin
I am a classic enabler
I am an aunt
I am an awkward soul
I am a friend for life.

Carrie, I'm glad you told me about the grandmother bit because, honest to Pete, I thought you were in your 20's. I don't know why I thought so, since you have SUCH depth. But I did. I'm sitting here, now, marveling. It must have been your lightness of being. How one accomplishes simultaneous depth and lightness of being, I don't know, but that's you. Now I want to know why you think you're an awkward soul?
