50 years...with lots of laughs and a few tears.
Quickly came marriage, then 4 times a baby carriage.
A family where girls prevail over one male kept me busy and made time sail.

A career for what was to come; education would cost a tidy sum.
College for 4 with 9 degrees, how to pay all those fees!

Responsibilities began to ease, but ties stayed strong as I looked toward open seas..
On my own...what did it mean to do as I please?
New doors, but where were the keys?

And then to career and money I said goodbye, no regrets but one small sigh.
Beautiful grandkids, a total of ten, where girls prevail over one male...once again.

Time for more hellos, to create anew, to speak my mind, and to wear purple too!
