Layout done for a scrap-therapy challenge going on at Scrapbook Graphics about the reasons a person is amazing or special. This is my take:Me, a special or amazing woman? I hardly think so. I am a daughter, a sister, a wife, a mother and child of God. I struggle every day with my flaws. I could stand improvements in all facets of my life. I am highly critical of myself, more so than anyone else could be. I strive to excel in everything that I do, but am easily hurt when I fail miserably. As a child I struggled because of my shyness and insecurities, which carried through adulthood. If you look at me, you might think me unapproachable; however, if you talk to me, you will find me to be a likeable person and a loyal friend. If someone were to ask me what is amazing about me, I would answer: 1) My marriage; I have been married since age 15, 24 years and going strong. 2) My 20 years of struggle with infertility and miscarriages. 3) The beginning of my journey to motherhood through adoption. 4) The birth of my most unexpected son, Liam. I AM special because I KNOW that I make a difference in my children’s lives. I might also add that I am a work in progress as I try to evolve into the very best person I can be. I hope that my children always know that they are the very best part of me and that I feel most blessed for having a special place in their lives.
