encouragement

I just read an amazing blog over at the LIVING PROOF blog. To think that Beth Moore at one point was praying some of the same things that I pray as a mom of toddlers was such an encouragement. I mean if Beth Moore can become the woman she has become and she too had the same struggles and fears that I have now maybe there is hope for me! Ha Ha! She also said that she worked at Mother's Day Out when her girls were little and so do I! I was also cracking up at her comment about her hand bell playing days. Who didn't do hand bells if you grew up in a Baptist church???!!!!

But on a serious note. She talked in her post about moms needing moms. Isn't that the truth these days? Sometimes it is hard to find the time to get together for play dates, but we need them so badly. When I actually do get together with other moms and we let our kids play I always feel such a bond with them. Even if we don't have a lot in common we always get along great b/c we do have the common bond of "motherhood" and that goes a long way!

I am going to try to host a play date soon. I think our new patio will be great for moms to sit on and kids to play in the yard. :) You bloggers need to keep me accountable, b/c I'll back out!

When I clicked on here I had just finished reading that same post. It was so good. I remember all those feelings. I seriously went through a phase where I made all my Christmas gifts. Too funny.

Jamie,
I read your blog often, but I don't think I've ever commented. I saw the same post yesterday by Beth Moore and was so encouraged!! I laughed at her "Baptist" experiences because I've so been there, and I was inspired and awed by her honest thoughts about being a mother. Good stuff.

hey girl, just checking in .. you are so right about moms needing other moms... it is wired in us by God to need each other, to lean on each other, to hold each other accountable, and raise our young warriors in the Lord...
