When my boyfriend asked me to marry him, we became a committed couple.
When I birthed our first child, I became a mother and we became a family, together for a lifetime.
When our son died in my arms, without warning, we became a grieving family, forever.
When I chose to write about my experiences of life and loss, and began to dabble in art as an expression to unleash my creativity, I became an artist, using a random process of mixed media to define my craft. An artist who had a story to tell with a forum to use. Defining in opening a part of my character, my being, that had been hidden and stuffed down, from shame as a child for not staying in the lines and using the colors the teacher expected.
When I became an artist, I began to live again.
We all have defining moments in our lives. It shapes who we were, who we are and who we become.
shaped who you have become today?
