All about moi

Stolen from Susie's blog:

I am from sunshine, from McDonald's happy meals and homemade chocolate chip cookies.
I am from the way too many places - from southern CA to western PA - some nice homes and some apartments that were in scary neighborhoods.

I am from the sandy beaches, the steel mills.

I am from opening one present on Xmas Eve night and stubborn streaks, from Cook and Lancaster and Cooley.

I am from the place where all visitors feel at home and are made members of the family if felt to be worthy.

From a place where I will never be without love and a place where sometimes I was very lonely.

I am from Methodists and Presbyterians and sometimes charasmatic places that seemed unreal and fake to me.

I'm from Germany, England and Wales), and lasagna and Pitzells.

From the dinner where I refused to know what fondue was, the home where I was supposedly the favorite but rarely felt that way, and the family members who would use racial slurs but then never seemed to mind that my group of friends was more diverse than the United Nations.

I am from the Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, and every other place that we went to as a family. The pictures of those times capture us at our best - when stress was low and fun was at an all time high.
