Before the New Year, I Find Myself

Who Am I?

I feel … overwhelmed by life

I trust … I’ll somehow be a good wife

I hear … the sounds of children laughing

I understand … that moment are always fleeting

I worry … that we will never have enough money

I’m glad … though we’re “poor” we are happy

I want … my children to be kind to each other

I don’t want … others to feel I’m a bother

I’m sad … that the world is a much harsher place

I dream … of someday floating in space

Who Am I?

I am … wife, mother, daughter, friend

I like … stories that are happy in the end

I hope … I’ll die peacefully in my bed

I dislike … peanut butter on my bread

I admire … St. Therese, the Little Flower

I fear … over temptations, I have weak power

I need … God to always show me the way

I know … it’s my choice to have a bad or good day

I wish … I had a butler, a maid, and a chauffer

I wonder … what sacrifice for today I should offer

Who Am I?

I’m happy … my husband has a job that provides for us all

I pretend … I need something so I can go to the mall

I try … to clean but I can never keep up

I read … so much that at night, it keeps me up

I’m sorry … I don’t say I love you enough

I wear … purses filled with too much stuff

I play … video games when I don’t want to think

I’m angry … at people who drive after they drink

I’m relieved … everyday that my parents are still alive

I love … that I have a family of five!

  1. perfect.
    I think we can all see a little bit of ourselves in each one.
    especially that cleaning one, as I look at what happens to the living room when mommy stays up to ring in the year at midnight — and kids wake up 1/2 hour before her. 🙂
    Happy New Year to you and a most blessed 2014!
