The top quote was just expressed to me by my son in accordance with his sister. Wow, what an ending to what was a wonderful weekend away for myself.

I Am A Woman.....First!

"Mom, you must choose to be grandmother or girlfriend.
You can't be both."

I choose my life.
I choose my limits.
I choose my freedom.

I am a woman who lives.
I am a woman who lives earnestly.
I am a woman who lives earnestly and eternally.
I am a woman who lives earnestly, eternally, and freely.

I am a woman who loves.
I am a woman who loves deeply.
I am a woman who loves deeply and faithfully.
I am a woman who loves deeply, faithfully, and freely.

I am a woman who hurts.
I am a woman who hurts deeply.
I am a woman who hurts deeply and sorrowfully.
I am a woman who hurts deeply, sorrowfully, and freely.

No one will bind me in their chains.
No one will force me to change.
No one will put me in a box.

No one defines me!


I am free to act as I choose!
I am free to express myself!

I am free to be me!

I think you should tune it and sing it in the face of your children whenever they try to be unreasonable!
