Who Am I Today

Maybe the question should be, “who do I want to be today?” Either way I know I have a choice. At this very moment, I want to be a creative and humorous writer as I finish this post and move on to another.

Let’s talk about how we define ourselves. Years ago in a Sunday School class, we were taught to say it this way. I am a Christian, a wife, a mother. I am still all of those things, just have changed the order and importance of the terms. What I am not is RA and OA, although I have those. I am me-MissDazey, aka Daisy, aka Linda, who is also wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. (And a quiet Christian) I am finding I like being a blogger, writer, and twitterer. I don’t like being a that a word?

I have never been a housewife. Oh, I was supposed to be one, just didn’t do it. I have been an employer and employee, business owner, and now a retiree. I dream of being a published author and have an online business. Today I am happy, silly, need a nap type of person.

PS: I am going to reopen a blog I started a year ago for Seniors. I’ll post a note here later this week about it.


  1. What a great post. So often we define ourselves by our illness when we are more than just that.

  2. Thanks for the comments. It's fun being old and looking back to all the neat and not to neat things I've been and done. It's great to still be able to explore the exciting possibilities of what's to come next.

  3. Here I go again.


Thanks for visiting..feel free to comment.
