What You’ve Been Looking For

0

You want to be here.

I’m telling you, this is the group you want to be a part of.

These women come from different backgrounds, have different upbringings, have different beliefs and voting preferences and political beliefs, and ALL have each other’s back.

These women breastfeed, use formula, have toddlers, have teenagers, have kids in college, have kids in Heaven, and all care and support each other and the motherhood journey each is uniquely walking down.

These are the type of women who talk to you and not about you if they have a problem. Help you fix your crooked crown, quietly point out the food between your teeth and toilet paper under your shoe, in your best interest and never for their entertainment.

Women who clap with you when you succeed.

Sit beside you when you stumble. And stand by your side when you need support. Women who tell you that your dress looks pretty. That shade of lipstick looks nice on you. And that green brings out the color of your eyes.

Women who hang out with you in your PJs. Wear crazy hats together. Laugh about the awkwardness of motherhood and support each other with the insanely hard parts. Tell hard truths and hilarious stories. See each other for who you are.

This group is special.

A place to feel seen and heard. A place to feel safe with your deepest thoughts and concerns. A place to let go and let loose and let the stress fall away. A place where you can be you, as long as that includes being kind to your fellow Mommas. Where judgment falls by the wayside and connection meets you in the places that have felt lacking.

We celebrate our differences here. Listen to all the points of view. Take in each other’s experiences that have led us to where we are. Agree to disagree. We aren’t on a mission to make everyone else believe just like us because that makes this beautiful. A breath of fresh air—accepting each other, despite our differences—coming together with our differences and being unified simply as mothers.

This is what your heart has been aching to find for a while now.

You can rest now, my weary momma soul.

You have found your people.

You have found your place.

Sit with us.

Hello all! I am a mother of three girls. Gracelyn is 8, Alise is 6, and Sayge went to Heaven at 7 weeks old. (SUIDS, which pretty much means they have no idea why she died) I was a social worker/admissions coordinator at Carillon Nursing Home in my previous life, and had quit to stay home to raise my kiddos after we had our youngest. I’m very active in kickboxing, Karate, and sparring. I know, crazy, but it has been my saving grace in dealing with the loss of our daughter. I have a fb page we had created to give out information for her funeral that turned into Letters to Sayge, and an instagram account Whispersofcourage where I try to infuse hope into the idea of going through life after the loss of a child. I also am a Lubbock coordinator for the West TX Chapter of a group called Hope Mommies that provides local support for mothers and families who has suffered child loss. I grew up on a farm in a small town. Met my husband, Shawn, in college at ACU, who I have been married to for 13 years and counting and is the love of my life. My main goal is simply to make a difference in the lives of others, while living this life to the fullest, and sharing the hope of Christ along the way.
