Mother. Sister. Daughter. Friend. Teacher. Girlfriend. Neighbor. Friendly stranger. I play at least one of these roles to many, many people. Sometimes I take it in stride, while other times it wears me out. Some days are great; others can’t end soon enough. I enjoy the independence of adulthood, but sometimes I long to go home. I can do anything, but sometimes I wonder how. I have big dreams. I have a strong spirit. And, I have a big heart. I am a woman.
