"I WANNA BE"

This is a photo of my mom as a young lady and her cousin. Mom has always been a very fun loving happy person even though my dad was a little hard on her at times. It wasn't always fun being married at a very young age and having five children. She tells me how she would have loved just to get out and go somewhere without all of us for just one night a month !!! It makes me feel very sad that she couldn't have much "ME" time as we call it now. We all need a break from time to time but in those days things were very different. They went through the depression and really had hard times.

Now my mother is 84 years old and my dad has passed away. I am trying to get her closer to my husband and myself and try our best to show her some fun times !!!
My mom writes poems now and I have one to share with all of you...

"I WANNA BE"

I WANNA BE GOOD
LIKE EVERYONE SHOULD!
I WANNA BE NICE
WHEN THE POT OVERBOILS TWICE!
I DON'T WANNA BE BAD
TO MAKE FOLKS MAD!
AND WISH I COULD SCREAM
MY LIFE TO REDEEM!
BUT I WANNA HAVE FUN
TIL ALL THE DAY'S DONE!
WALKIN ALONG,
SINGIN A SONG.
GOIN MY WAY
A GOOD WORD TO SAY
JUST A LITTLE WHILE
MAKIN YOU SMILE!
I MOST WANNA BE
JUST PLAIN OLE ME!
YOU WANNA BE HAPPY
AND NOT SO SNAPPY?
BE A WANNA BE GOOD
LIKE EVERYONE SHOULD!  

BY-BETTY FROST  (JUST ME)

THANKS MOM JUST FOR BEING YOU !!!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone~~~
Hugs,
Bonnie
