I realized many of you don’t know me. How sad! I’m fascinating. Just ask me.
So, this post will be all about me.
Wait, you think. Aren’t they all about you?
True. But this one is really about me.
I’m a published poet…if a Spanish magazine at my university counts. I wrote and they published a poem. I even read it at the annual Spanish poetry reading society (if that is what it was really called). It was entitled something brilliant…like Mariposa. I loved Spanish—until they kicked me out the following year for not being able to speak it. I guess writing and speaking are two different things, eh?!
On top of a published poet, I’m a paid stand-up comedian. It’s true. I am on daily…The Nungesser Show. I have a captive audience. One is 3-years-old and the other is 23 months. It doesn’t matter if they don’t have a choice, they laugh. Daily. At me. I’m a superstar! I am paid in giggles and cuddles. That’s a priceless currency, you know.
Believe it or not, I have more jobs. I’m a professional relationship expert. Yep. Ask my husband, he’ll tell you that I know about everything! Umm…I am not sure he always agrees, however, I still have to work with him about that (insert smile and wink here, right, ladies?!). Time for another session, babe! Meet me on the couch (hubba-hubba!).
Lastly, I am the ultimate librarian. That’s right, folks. I may not have the book, but I guarantee if my daughter wants to read it, I’ll find it. I love the sentence she wrote once in school using her spelling word smarter. It read, “The smarter I get the happier I am.” School is cool, friends! School is cool. I love that I have the job of being a librarian!
Wait. What? It doesn’t sound like much?
Oh, really? Because to the 4 that live under my roof, it’s everything.
Who are YOU? Whoever you are, be the best you that you can possibly be.
Paid or unpaid.
I’d love to meet you.

Hi Brooke, I found you through our mutual friend, Emily and the amazing podcast you did with her. I was driving down the road wiping tears away as you shared about your son in the hospital. We had a very sick son in a foreign hospital too, so my mama heart empathized with you deeply.
It’s great to “meet” you! I run VelvetAshes.com, an online community for women serving overseas. If you’d be interested in writing and sharing your story with us, we’d be honored and I think you’d find lots of kindred hearts there.

Thank you so much! I would be very honored. Yes—mommies’ hearts unite terribly much when our babies are sick. Sometimes even more so when far away from home! God bless, I will try and get in touch with you once I’m on a computer again. (Traveling until Monday evening). Xxoo b
