Being the proud mother I am, I’d like to say a bit about my two children who are two of the brightest, most wonderful stars in my sky.
Anicka, my beautiful daughter, is 27. A true Leo, she is bright, outgoing, strong-willed, and one day hopes to be an actress for which she has a truly natural flair. I’ve already told her that her first Oscar award is to be dedicated to me for “putting up” with her dramatics all these years. She is a spiritual seeker, enjoys reading, all animals (she likes to raise mice), music, and movies (especially musicals and Esther Williams flicks). She is the Sun and I love her dearly. She’s working and attending college to further her education.
Devon, my precious son, is a 22 years old. True to his Pisces nature, he is sensitive, kind, loving, and is now moving into all the tribulations of becoming a young man. He has a fascination for trains, work machines, cars, etc. (you know, guy stuff *s*). He’s also a video games fanatic. He really enjoys music, plays the drums wonderfully, and is a surprisingly good dance partner. He’s the one and only “Cubi” (my nickname for him *s*) He’s currently working and trying to stay out of trouble.
So, these are my “rugrats”. Two star-bright jewels who entered my life in such unexpected ways. They keep me on my toes, and teach me lessons of life, imagination and wisdom day after day. Despite any travails we may encounter, we know that the love between us is the key. Air, Fire, and Water—what a team we make!
Cheers to all the Proud Moms!
