Who We Are

Hello, I hope your doing good today, I'm doing great. I find it a little funny that I came across this saying after writing about roots and wings. Maybe someone is sending me a message, a message to remember my roots, as I start this new chapter in my life. I do go by the hometown I grew up in everyday on my way to work. And now that I'm grown, I do often think about how lucky I was to be able to grow up where I did, with who I did. I didn't realize it then, as times were often difficult with my mother's illness, and then my father's illness. But I do realize it now. Each life experience, the good and the not so good, were meant to nourish me to be me. And at this time in my life, I do feel like I have fully flourished. I have a true feeling of completeness. So as they say, I wouldn't change a single thing, not one single experience. So today I'm sending the message along to you, every once in a while take a moment to remember where you've been and how far you have come. You might just be amazed by how beautifully you have flourished from your own roots.
Thanks for visiting,
Janet :)



  1. Great post, Janet. I can totally relate to all these. I too was quite ungrateful to my roots until I had Ellie and came back to my home town. I now believe that thanks to my family and the place I've grew up on I am who I am and I truly like what I've become.

    Thanks, Janet. Have a wonderful day!

  2. In this case I'd I moved on...in spite of my roots :).
