Find My Way Back Into Love



Detectives and lawyer

They were my companions in my younger years

Those book characters were with me everywhere


I once imagined myself as

Smart and resourceful Nancy Drew

With brothers as lucky and clever as Hardy Boys


But I think I grew up

With astute logical reasoning as Sherlock Holmes

With an ability to get somebody out of trouble like Perry Mason


My family was hopeful

That someday they will see me in court

A lawyer just like my uncle


But I couldn’t tell them

I just wanted to be a woman, wife and a mom

I haven’t told anyone until now


And so I grow older and took up engineering

And yes I became a woman, wife and a mom

Defending someone, saving myself and trying to be logical


Dream came true? I don’t know. All I know is I could be Hercule Poirot

Who believes that “in the long run, either through a lie, or through truth,

people were bound to give themselves away…”


For Gooseberry Garden on Childhood, Dreams, Books, Role Models.


It’s true. All I ever dreamt of was to be a woman, wife and a mom — all because I wanted to find my way back into love. And how about you?



Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. – Matthew 7:7

    Like you, I read Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys and a lot of other stuff. I’m not sure I dreamed about being a woman, wife, mother. That just happened, and it’s OK. Love this post. x0x

    From a very young child I told everyone who would listen that all I wanted to be was a mother. And I am. But I am also a lot more, as are you.

  7. Morning Says:

    me too, being a woman, wife, and mom is cool.

  8. Arlee Bird Says:

    It’s true that a wife and mom often serves in the similar capacity of lawyer and judge. You probably have better clients in your job.
