Because I love being a mother.
Because there are days that I don’t.
Because I’m not a perfect mother, and will never pretend that I am.
Because mothering IS an ongoing marathon week after week.
Because I have Luke, Ryan, and Kate filling me up with ideas for blog posts and yet I had no blog. Till now that is.
Because I am real, raw, and honest.
Because I’m a mom who has more to say then “clean your room,” “please get in the car now,” or any other directives I spout out daily.
Because I have a real need to share who I am and what I think, feel, experience, and observe as a mom.
Because I am a wife, mother, daughter, girlfriend, runner, and writer. I celebrate all these parts of me and you should be celebrated too.
Because I wear a special needs mom hat for my son Ryan, who was born with Prader-Willi syndrome, a rare genetic disorder.
Because I love to be inspired and hope to inspire other moms and women.
Because I dislike doing arts and crafts and science experiments, and I’m not afraid to admit it.
Because I promise to never act like my children are perfect, or my house is perfect, or my life is perfect.
Because I feel called to write. I always have. Since I was in 2nd grade. And God keeps putting people in my path to ask me, “Have you started a blog yet?”
Because mothers need other mothers, just like girlfriends need girlfriends. Badly. Wonderfully. Amazingly. Happily.
Because I finally got the darn courage to do this and it will be so cathartic for my heart.
Because my prayer is that this will be good for your heart as well.
So here I go…
