Along the way this dream of mine did come true, and with it a whole lot of surprises at how hard and crazy it could be! Even some days that made me question why I always wanted to do this.
How do we find hope, find that peace and joy that we once envisioned on those really hard days?
We need to find our thing, whether it be a quote, a scripture, a tribe or group of moms to talk with- something that can help us refocus and catch the vision of why we wanted to be moms.
I am not saying that a group or a quote will make it suddenly easy, but we need something.
I am lucky enough to be part of a group of women who help run Power of Moms. This last weekend we gathered in a beautiful home in Park City for a board meeting. A meeting where not only did we discuss the little details of things to make the site run its best, but we talked about our vision, why we were doing this and what we wanted.
This group of women, they don't do it for the money or the fame or prestige, they do it because they too are mothers and remember and understand what it is like to be up all night with a crying baby, or broken hearted from a teenager who just doesn't seem to listen. They want to empower, give tools and just be there to help you be able to really enjoy your role as a mother.
|Power of Moms Board- not all were able to make it|
|Playing revers charades- and not my baby- that baby got so much love that weekend from all the moms|
Motherhood is meant to be a wonderful thing.
