Well, I’m definitely NOT 24601 (bonus points if you know that one).
Have you ever sat yourself down and wondered, seriously, about your purpose, your goals, your dreams? I’ve never written a daily prompt before but this one struck a nerve. The simple phrase I am a rock has sent my brain into a whirlwind of dreams, hopes, desires, goals.
I am a mom who wishes for the best for my children. I am as consistent as one person can be when it comes to discipline and guidance. My love for them is never ending, always growing. I am their soft place to land when they need to fall down and I am their rock.
I am a daughter who has parents who made mistakes, a lot of them, and I forgive those that need forgiving and a laugh at those that are just part of raising seven children. I am a product of their effort. I was the first of the seven children to move out of the town we were all born and raised in. I have been through some medically and emotionally trying times over the last fourteen years since leaving the nest. I am stronger than I understand because they built me strong as a rock.
I am a sister who has seen her siblings deal with marriage, divorce, healthy children, disabled children, mental health issues and addictions. They all know they can turn to me and I will do everything in my power to support their good choices and am honest enough to tell them when they are making bad choices. I am their rock.
I am a friend who listens when I need to listen, who talks when something needs to be said, who will go shopping even though I have absolutely nothing to buy. I will support their parenting, enjoy their children and love them as my own. I choose to surround myself with a very small group of friends with whom I am extremely close. We are rocks for each other.
I am a girlfriend to a man who thinks I’m nuts and isn’t afraid to say it. Nobody knows what the future holds, I just know that when the day is done and I have been a rock for everybody else, he is mine and I am his.
