Growing up as a young girl, I realized I was different from others. My life, my home, my thoughts, my physical being…all different. Sometimes, my peers made me aware of this. Yes, people can be mean. But what they didn’t know was that I already knew this and was proud of it. And, another thing they didn’t know…they weren’t perfect, either.
Now that I’m older…I am a woman who is still different from others. My life, my home, my thoughts, my physical being…all different. Yes, people can still be mean.
Over time, I have realized I am perfectly imperfect.
Without all the flaws, I wouldn’t be real. For that, I am Thankful!

This road reminds me of home. My West Virginia home.
I’m tired…and only a mile from home.
car coming toward me.
it crossed the line.
I’m turning right. Turn more. Hurry!
Foot on brake. Quick jerk!
I’m crowded. Nowhere to go.
I see him. The driver!
“Hey You! Get off your phone!”
Slammed my horn! Our cars almost collide.
EYE CONTACT IS MADE!
I read his lips.
He says, “WHOA!”
(Steer left. Back on the road.)
Control maintained. Composure gained.
tight grip. near miss.
and in the blink of an eye…He’s gone!
Radio is off.
Nothing but the sound of the blinker.
Thoughts escape me… except for two.
P.S. True story.

When I first opened this window from my small little world, the view was limited. No one stopped by and I never ventured out to see the view of others. Because I was new to the blogging world, I wasn’t sure if anyone even wanted to see my view. I wasn’t sure how long I could even leave the window open. So, I took a chance. I decided to open the window a little further. A few people stopped by to say “hello.” I shared their view with a few and in turn, they shared mine. It’s amazing how people connect through thoughts, words and unique passions. Some views may be very similar while others may contrast but the window is open to all. The wider the window opened, the bigger the view became. I am so thankful I decided to leave the window open. My view is beautiful and it’s all because of you.
For all those who have helped create this amazing view, “Thank You.”
I look for forward to meeting many more wonderful people from The View From My Window!
