What are your roles in life? Are some more important than others? How do your roles define who you are? My roles in order of how they happened are daughter, sister, friend, wife and mother. For me the order they go in are wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend. But I have many roles that define me. I am a child of God, a niece, an aunt, Eagle Scout Mom, Girl Scout leader, neighbor, American citizen and host mother. I used to also be a den leader, substitute teacher, PTA board president, vice president and secretary over the years. When my husband and my sister threw me a surprise 40th birthday party a few years ago, my sister made me this collage. She made me feel very valued for of the roles that define me. My blog profile I define myself as "Happy to BE an artsy wife and mother, sister, daughter and friend." I think that by giving up subbing and PTA I have become happier. I am really enjoying my time at home, not running around trying to make everyone else happy but making me happy.
