Introducing myself and my journal: A small tree

Posted January 9, 2011 from United States

About Me: I am a mother of two and married almost 20 years. I love life. I like to laugh. I love the world, but have seen little of it. I have seen poverty as an exchange student as a teenager, but so thankful to never have lived in poverty. I like being friends with joyful people and habitually only say good day, never good bye(unless I slip up). My best friend and I share the joys and emotions of being married women and mothers. My daughter teases me that she thinks I am on 'a path to enlightenment'. She sees things I don't, so I hope she is right. My generations are far apart, my parents are dead, my family is more friends than blood relations. I have a good history--two of my father's aunts were missionaries of the Srs of St Joseph. I am so proud to have their teaching and blood in my veins. I am so nondescript and average by comparison, but my younger Great Aunt told me it was God's will I fall in love and start a family, so my strength is in my being just another woman, with a voice. That's it.

My Passions: my two children

My Challenges: my anger

My Vision for the Future: less violence

My Areas of Expertise: being a quick learner

    Hello from World Pulse, Cycad.

    I act as a volunteer World Pulse welcomer for new WP members and listener for other journal entries. This is some of the most exciting and rewarding work I've ever done. Through this effort, I have become a world volunteer.

    I am wondering whether you have found any World Pulse efforts that really stir you to action. Our searchable site has so many examples of females empowering each other through education and encouragement, that there is bound to be inspiration for all.

    We'd love to hear from you again.
