What am I made of?
Of hard work and persistence
Of tears and laughter spent with friends and family
City apartments and suburban houses
And swimming in pools and lakes, running on trails
Little kids and big kids
Sweat, headaches, yelling and lots of smiles
Listening and understanding
Pizza with pepperoni, pasta with a lot of cheese
Cannoli cakes for weddings and birthdays and for no reason at all
I am made of kindergarten through 8th grade math, history, and reading, drama and basketball.
An ear to listen, advice to give.
Overcoming illness that will not destroy me!
I am jokes and trust from home to Portage Park.
