I Was Born to do This!

Hello blogging friends,

Six years ago I started this blogging journey

in my cozy cottage living room

with my ipad and a prayer.

I didn’t wish any accolades or thumbs up.

There was a persistent need living inside me,

one that had to share my stories. Almost

like a desperate thirst that must be quenched.

It didn’t all start six years ago

though.

This is when I was 7 or 8, around the time I thought of stories. Im on the left and my sister Barb is on the right.

My first memory of writing was in

Mrs. Tuttle’s Third grade class,

where I penned short stories

on brittle yellow slips of paper.

The next memory was the play I crafted

in fourth grade with a bear in it.

Understandably I don’t remember the other characters because it was over forty years ago.

My artistic mom helped me with cardboard props

and my friends and I performed the short

play in class. Possibly Vanessa English

and Christine Roy remembers this?

Should I mention my penchant

for creative writing and

that the stories were a way

of coping with feeling less than?

Ms. Sirlin’s Fifth grade class was my

introduction to pictures mounted to cardboard

in a writing center.

The student’s job was to

see a story in the picture,

to create a flow of words to accompany it.

I guess that’s when I realized

that I was born to write

and to love it as well!

I have skipped a year or two

but here I am once again,

putting myself out here.

I believe God makes us all unique,

made special. From an early age writing seemed to flow through my veins.

I would make up stories in show and tell,

not knowing that it was the author in me.

I feel blessed that I have this.

I may not be talented enough to publish

but for now, this is enough for me. Who knows what my future

is in this, for I’m only 52!🤣

I was born to do this.

All My Best,

Heart and Soul

Mary ❤️
