Moms Talk Network is Having a Blog Party...

Welcome to the Artsy Mamas Blog Party!

As busy moms, we usually do not take much time for ourselves. We’re busy with our kids, our homes, or our jobs.

But this week we’re focusing on ourselves and what makes us unique and fun. To be included in this event, simply create one blog post about art, being a creative mama, living life authentically, self-esteem, what you “used to do” before you were a mama, wanting to be a creative mama, Artsy Mamas the organization, or anything else that might relate to arts and motherhood.Once you create your post, come back to Mom’s Talk Network and fill in your post link Come Join The Party!

Since this is an "artsy mama" blog party, I thought I would try and awaken some of my poetry writing. It has been awhile since I became a mother that I have had time to write poetry...so in honor of my past and in looking towards my future...here is my poem on life...

Before I Became A Mom...
©2008 Patricia Garza

I was just me...
I didn't know what my purpose in life was...
I went out dancing, went out partying, dated
all the wrong men, worked with other people's children
and lived life carefree...

I didn't know if I'd ever be a mom...
I spent my days seeking someone to love
and someone to love me...
I spent my nights praying for direction and
guidance...

Then one day,
my husband came into my life,
he proposed to me at the foot of the cross,
atop of a mountain...

My life changed forever that day...
in the years to come
we had our sons...
now I am a mother and I am still me...

I am no longer seeking love...
love has found me;
my sons have filled our lives with joy,
sometimes lack of sleep,
but nonetheless my life is blessed...

I have a loving husband,
I have two energetic and happy sons,
we have our health and our futures to look forward to...

Before I became a mom I had only me.
