Wednesday's Women No. 25
Because I think 25 is kind of a special number I am going to make every 25th Wednesday's Women about me. I will be Wednesday's Women No. 25, No. 50, No. 75, etc.
I will always be in my mothering years, the years where I have invested most of my being.
When I had my first daughter Angelique, I made a commitment to myself that no matter what; I was going to root myself. I was going to be the tree of life that she would cling too.
I went on to have more children; another daughter Nadalene and a son Nathan and it rooted me even more. I vowed that the tree they clung too would stand the test of time. It would sway in the wind, but it would not break.
My husband Wahid helped me build the nest that would be the center of my being. And though sometimes the branches were bare we hardly noticed.
With the two big trees in front of the house and the swallows flying around to bless us all, we are happy.
Together we have made memories that have sprung like flowers that are circling my head.
