Who am I? I am all the shades of red and tides on the beach. I am hot sand, fall leaves, and bare feet in wet dirt. I am part warm laundry from the dryer and fresh clean sheets. I am the one who cuts the crust of sandwiches. I am new freckles and tan lines, homemade granola, holiday decorations, and crafts with kids. Who else am I?
Who am I?
I am mama, daughter, wife, sister, aunt, cousin, and friend. Of course I am teacher, baker, laundress, circus trainer, chef and problem solver. I am a homemaker, a refuge-giver, chauffeur, banker, and warden.
And I am exhausted.
But I don’t want anything else but all of this.
