# 1 Fan
I am a newborn.
I have been welcomed into this world
and am expected to now fulfill every
aspect of life that comes my way.
I have been given the opportunity
to create a life all my own and do as I please.
I plan to accomplish every dream,
Conquer every fear,
and live this life, MY life, to its fullest.
I am a toddler.
Even though I am just beginning my learning phase.
I am still too young to understand why things are done.
Why God created Earth.
Why people die.
Or the ever famous: Where do babies come from?
But no matter what I haven't learned yet,
I know God has a safe plan for me,
and I still intend to follow that plan.
I am in my pre-teen years.
I am following trends, and
starting to understand why things are done,
but turning those whys into why nots,
and maybe, just maybe, be a part of those whys or why nots
that could one day optimistically affect people's lives.
I am a teenager.
These are probably the toughest years I will ever have to live through.
These are the years I will have to make my way through bullies,
Bad grades and a broken heart.
But as I have been taught:
No man is ever worth my tears or pain.
However, during high school I can,
Get good grades, meet new people, and enjoy my friends,
Plan for college and my future.
Involve myself in any activity I can.
So I look forward to both the good and bad of my teen years knowing
That no matter what, I can take on any challenge.
I am in college.
I am working hard and enjoying this part of God’s plan.
I managed to make my way through high school and
Have now come to a chapter in my life
Where it will determine my future.
I can’t wait!
I am out of college and married with children.
I am a hard-worker at what I do, and
Now it’s my turn to let my children fulfill every aspect in life
That comes their way.
They have been given the opportunity to create a life
All on their own and do as they please.
I want them to accomplish every dream,
Conquer every fear, and live life,
THEIR life, to it’s fullest.
I know that they can do whatever they wish as long as they put
Their mind to it.
But no matter what, I will always be on the sidelines cheering them on
Because just like my parents were, and still are, I am their # 1 fan.
I am retired now, and my children are in college.
My husband and I were fortunate enough to have our
Beautiful children make their way through high school and onto
Bigger and better places.
I know that they will be successful at whatever they do.
I am extremely proud of them and am still their # 1 fan.
Enough time has passed to be extremely blessed with grandchildren,
And now it is my children’s turn to let their children fulfill every aspect of life
That comes their way.
They have been given the opportunity to create a life all their own
And do as they please.
I want my children to want their children
To accomplish their dreams, conquer every fear, and live life,
THEIR life, to its fullest.
I want my grandchildren to know that no matter what I will
Always be their # 1 fan.
I am old.
My bones are weak and I can’t do as much as I’d like.
I feel that I have accomplished every dream,
Conquered every fear, and lived a life, MY life to its fullest.
And now as I slowly pass,
I know that my family was my biggest fan and I was theirs.
But forever I always have been, I am, and always be my biggest fan.
