I used to.....

I have lost my identity.  (not sure where it went)


I used to know who I was.  (At least I think I knew.) 


I think I used to be intelligent.  (I went to college)


I used to be thin.  (god that was ages ago)


 I used to have friends that could carry on a decent conversation. (the wiggles, sesame street, and yugiho, and spongebob just don't cut it)


I used to be able to leave the house without being attatched to someone..(haven't seen the light of day in a long time.)


I used to know what sleep was.(haven't slept in 22 years)


I used to know what a hot meal was. (fried chicken is supposed to be hot, right?)


I used to know what it was like to go to the bathroom on my own.(no one screaming at the door)


I used to know what quiet was.(oh blissful quiet)


I used to know that wine went with cheese and crackers. (not a mind numbing noise that paralyzes.)


I used to have a name. (not sure what it was)


I used to.....


Now I know I'm raising the next generation. (five times over)


Now I know I'm teaching young minds.(just maybe, they will leave this world better off)


Now I know I have earned every roll. (each imperfection is a badge of honor from each of my children)


Now my conversations are much more creative.(yes there is magic, fairies, dragons and santa does exist)


Now I have an adventure every time I leave the house (just try taking five kids to the grocery store)


Now instead of sleep I watch my children sleep. ( the world seem like it has endless possibilities in their faces)


Now my family has meals together.(dinner conversations are the best)


Now a bubble bath is an indulgence.(not just a bubble bath, how boring) 


Now I know the laughter of my children.(what better noise is there?)


Now I have a true name.  The name of joy. The name of strength. The name of security. The name of love.

To realize that one do not understand is a virtue; Not to realize that you do not understand is a defect. The reason why The sage has no defect, Is because he treats defects as defects. Thus, He has no defects.

That was so true. What we get instead of what we give up.
