I'd rather be Maria, after all.


When I was a teenager, I wanted to be beautiful and gorgeous.
Graceful and stunning.
Instead I was short, clumsy, & silly.
People said I was cute, but I didn't want to be cute,
and it made me feel bad to hear it ALL the time.
Like I was a little 2 yr. old with pigtails or something.

Then, I discovered the character Maria. . .

She won the guy, her kids loved being around her, she climbed trees, wore drapes, had a bad haircut, frolicked in lakes, sang songs, did puppet shows, had confidence, loved nature, respected her husband and a father's role but spoke up when necessary, protected her family, and climbed every mountain.
Everything that I would like to be.
Maybe being cute isn't so bad after all.
