If you want to know who I am, these 5 things would be key to figuring it out, I’ll even tell you why they are so important, though there is no particular order.
My Mustang~ I love American Muscle Cars. I grew up with them. They bring back good memories of riding in the back seat with my cousins, my Daddy and different Uncles in the front seat, hot summer nights, windows down, watching the moon through the trees. The sound of the engine when you shift gears, that rumble you feel in your gut. Yeah that one. I’ve made many good friends through the years because of those cars. I may not be as into them as I was but the friendships endure.
The rings I wear on my left hand ~ I wear three rings on my left hand. The wedding band Mike bought me when we got married. We had no money, it was hard for us to afford it, but we managed. With all that is happening in our lives, that ring is even more precious than it was before. It signifies our commitment to each other, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health, till death do us part.
The middle ring is my grandmother’s wedding ring when she was married to her second husband and was made with diamonds from her engagement ring from my Granddaddy and a ring my great grandmother had. The 3 diamonds are small, but to me they’re priceless. They represent the past, the present and future.
The top ring is my Mama’s engagement ring from when she got engaged to my Step Dad. And if you’ve read much of my writing, you know how much I think of that man.
Music ~ I come from a family of musicians. Teachers, artists, you name it, someone in my family plays it. To me, music can speak to our soul on so many levels. Any emotion I’ve ever felt, there’s a song for it. Good or bad, doesn’t matter. My taste is eclectic to say the least. About the only thing I don’t listen to is rap. I have vinyl, a few 8 tracks and cassettes and many CD’s, along with several MP3 players.
My photo albums ~ My childhood, Mike’s childhood, my daughter’s, my ancestors, my parents, my grandchildren and all the rest of my life is there. I can look at them and see how we’ve all changed, and yes I look like my great grandmother or see my grandmother when she was young and full of hope. I can see the sparkle in my Mama’s eyes that is still there to this day. My daughter’s face as she has grown into the amazing woman she is.
My laptop ~ All my hopes, dreams, fears, anything that crosses my mind is there. The way it’s set up and things are named and saved make sense to me, probably not anyone else. That’s fine with me. It’s mine, who and what I am are on here.
