    Where I'm From...

    November 30, 2011

    ...inspired by my friend whose grandson had to write one of these at school....

    I am from grilled cheese sandwiches in the basement at Simpson’s
    I am from playing hide and seek until the street lights came on
    I am from riding my bicycle to and from a softball practice
    I am from the hill in New Brunswick from our home down to the water
    I am from sitting alone in the halls in high school
    I am from writing songs and poems about myself
    I am from sitting by my pool
    I am from not ever learning to do the front crawl
    I am from sitting on my bed to do my homework
    I am from watching Gilligan’s Island with my brother and walking together to the ice cream shop
    I am from babysitting with my sister and playing dolls in the tree
    I am from being a middle child and not always knowing my place
    I am from falling off my bike and not remembering how
    I am from playing school during the teachers’ strike
    I am from Yorkshire puddings and roasted potatoes
    I am from a mom who cares about her family
    I am from learning to play cards with my Dad
    I am from learning to breathe as an infant
    I am from forgetting to breathe during my teens
    I am from re-learning to breathe once again
    I am from being really super scared and really super brave, at the same time
    I am from keeping my cupboards organized but not letting it keep me up at night
    I am from few friends who are my best friends
    I am from doors that close and windows that open
    I am from listening and honesty, from trust and compassion
    I am from finding the balance in life
    I am from a husband who loves all of me
    I am from tea and warm blankets on my feet
    I am from sand between my toes and hoping for more
    I am from wishes and prayers
    I am from running out of time and from having all the time in the world
    I am from dancing in my head, to dancing in my church
    I am from an endless supply of tears
    I am from a smile that comes from my soul
    I am from singing my daughters to sleep and from our snuggles in the morning
    I am from the dirt in my garden shoes
    I am from receiving a diagnosis
    I am from not allowing that diagnosis to have me
    I am from watching my Dad live and then watching him die
    I am from love.
    I am from God.

    Hey Katharine

    Loved this...with this poem you make me believe that maybe we all come from the same shared, sacred place.

    Your posts ooze a gentle, inviting delightful spirit!

    Thank God for you...
