I am from the mountain tops of New Jersey, to the waves in the ocean.
I am from the Jersey shore.
I am from the visits to my grandparent's house.
I am from the three acres of land, to the woods in our backyard. I am from the sweet pea, the birch tree I called the wishing tree.
I am from our Portuguese Christmas dinner and from traditional family cooking, from learning steps.
To taking part of a family role.
I am from saying ouch when i needed my Daddy to help me up.
From asking my Mom.
To Disney World.
To Mickey and Minnie.
I am from getting my red stuffed Elmo.
I am from visiting the busy New York streets.
To shopping on the strip.
To visiting the Grad Canyon and the San Francisco hills.
To leaving the home i knew, to meeting friends in the 5th grade.
I am from soccer, basketball, tennis, softball, and field hockey.
Having to see my brother leave and join the army.
To him going to Iraq.
To going through changes.
I am only waiting for what life brings me next.
