I am...

I am a mother

a wife

a veteran

an artist

a daughter

But none of those words really describe WHO I am.

I'm determined to always be a better person. To always do the right thing, even when no one is looking. I'm a teacher, responsible for another humans life, on how he thinks and approaches situations. I'm constantly worried if I'm doing a good enough job. I'm understanding, always listening to what my husband has to say. What he thinks about. Discuss issues in the world and give my input. The person to run towards the sound of danger, only to hope I find people I can help. Constantly displaying my soul on canvas and get criticized by strangers, always wondering if I am good enough. A crutch, who is always there to listen and comfort the loss of my father to my mother.

I am Sara.
