Know Thy Person

Me, Myself And I

So, you want to know about Lil Ole Me... I usually don't talk about myself but to some of you who don't know who I am, here goes... My name is Diane and I happen to be Steve's Aunt. I have had to overcome many obstacles in life and am still struggling with some. But amid all of the pain and anxiety, I’ve come to one powerful conclusion: Life is too unpredictable not to enjoy the moment.

My experiences have shaped who I am and how I see life. They have made me more aware of my surroundings and I appreciate life more because of them. Now, becoming an aunt is completely out of one's control. When your sister becomes a mom, you become an aunt. There is no life planning or great thought put into this occasion, it just happens and believe me it changes your life. There is something special about the relationship between aunt and nephew that is like no other. But if that relationship is strained, the one with the nephew may be a bit distant, unless the two make an effort to repair it. This is our story...

Steven and I haven't been in contact for a few years and the loss time between him and I was something that happened. In 2008, I saw my nephew, after a long time, at my oldest daughter's wedding. When we saw each other, it was as if we never parted and it was so nice seeing him again. To be honest, Steve hasn't changed that much, beside being older. To me, he is still the same... the little boy who loved to sing and perform in front of people. When he mentioned to me about his career, I listened to him talk carefully and then his music. I can actually say that he again touched my heart, not just with his music but the man himself. He's intelligent, witty, funny and believe me, what you see is the real deal. He is at the top today, not just because of hard work and practice but because of his Mother, who got him started in the Entertainment Industry, early in life. She always encouraged and supported him, nudging him to practice, practice and practice some more. He is the man and person he is today because of his Mom. She has made him strong and gave him the will power to succeed. She taught him to always be true to himself and respect not only himself but others as well. I would definitely say that his Mother is his hero because everything she does or did was for him and to see him succeed in life. My sister and I always knew that hard work is necessary to develop any talent but we also recognized the great gift he has for what he is today. I'm proud to call him my nephew and I made this site for him because of the person he is and of his great talent. Steve deserves only the best and only the best he shall have.

Now, pull up a chair and sit on the floor as we used to say and stay with me a little while longer. Basically, this is where I’m going to be talking about myself... My age, well, I am ?? years old... let me put it this way, I am in my sixties. Honestly, I am not one of these woman who cringe at the subject of age. I am 60 years young and loving it.
I care for my family - being best friend, cook, housekeeper, nurse, psychologist, teacher, laundry playmate and the list goes on... I am trying to make the best out of life while I still have one and while I'm still young. My family is above all else my priority, making them happy or at least satisfied are my daily goals.
I treasure the simple joys of life that add beauty to the heart. I like to do a lot of different things but the simpler pleasures in life I enjoy the most are... spending time at home, listening to music, working on my web pages (which has come a passion to me), spending time with my family and friends and just being plain happy and upbeat. I love my computer and spend day and night on my website. I don't think I could go without my computer, I would go stir crazy! I'm definitely a computer nerd...
I am a woman, mother, daughter, sister, niece and aunt. I am still searching inside of myself for my true identity and believe that I will spend the rest of my life searching. My life goes through seasons: seasons of being a daughter and a mother. I am still me, deep down inside and I am responsible for taking care of myself. I am responsible, one day at a time, sometimes one minute at a time - to stay SANE. There is so much to lose - not objects but people that I love. What do I want to be when I grow up? Appreciated. I believe we are always changing and hopefully growing.
Well, that's all I have to say for now, so thank you for dropping by. Now we all know that saying thank you is the polite thing to do because after all, my mommy and daddy taught me to be polite. But do come back to visit from time to time, so you can check out what I've been up to...
