I grew up surrounded by women who looked at life while arching a brow. They taught me that “pretty” is ephemeral, and “smart” and “funny” last a lifetime. They taught me that I can find my way if I give myself enough credit.
Because I have always been self-conscious of my appearance and hate being the center of attention, The Universe and all the powers that run it (and manage its various departments) blessed me with a son who commands attention because of his combination of a disability and a wonderful sense of self.
I am a stay-at-home something…I really don’t know what it is I do. I have two sons who drive me nuts and make me happy. I married the only person in the world who knows ME, and I feel very fortunate that -knowing what he does- he still puts up with me.
