The Real Me

 

Mama’s Losin’ ItThis week’s writing challenge(well one of them) is pick a picture that shows the real you! I’m usually the one behind the camera and this made me think maybe before my trip I should take a few pictures of me with my loved ones….yeah I’ll get right on that.

However I did have fun looking through photos to find one that represented me….and I stumbled upon one that captured me PERFECTLY!

Photobucket

This was taken a few years back,while we were living in Williams Arizona. I had just left a very verbal and emotionally abusive relationship. I had almost lost my Kenna into a great void of silence and I fought tooth and nail to get my own place and pull her out of that void…to teach her once again her voice should never be lost.

It was also the summer my best friend lost her husband to suicide.

I look at this picture and see:

Hope

Healing

Two precious daughters who will stand by me no matter what

Joy I see joy in the midst of pain.

A strong woman who without a doubt could take on the world.

Someone who loves to smile and laugh.

A woman who had forgotten who she was but now remembered and was NEVER EVER going to look back.

I see the girl who writes this blog and has re found her own voice.

I see ME
