What Everyone Sees

Everyone sees a confident, driven woman.
What they don’t see is the fear and doubt that lurk inside.

Everyone sees a woman quick to smile and joke.
What they don’t see are the tears and sorrows that threaten to consume her at times.

Everyone sees a kind, compassionate woman.
What they don’t see is the woman who so desperately wants to save because there were others in her life that she could not.

Everyone sees a woman with unending patience and strength.
What they don’t see are the times when she just wants to give up and buckle under the weight.

What everyone sees is what they want to see.
But do they see me?


About BusyMaineMom

I am a wife and mother of two living in the great state of Maine. I have a very active lifestyle and am always on the go, whether it is on the run with one of my daughter's activities, working, camping, or hiking the trails. My life is always in motion. So, this blog gives me some time to sit and reflect on myself and the world. I work with people who are visually impaired or blind and they have opened my eyes to more than they will ever know. I love assisting them in regaining their independence while listening to their stories, validating their fears and giving them hope for the future.
