As I venture further down the road of motherhood, I’ve encountered some moms whose stories of triumph, stamina and determination leave me awestruck. Here I am, with (only) two healthy, happy children, a safe home, a supportive husband, and enough food on the table (and floor) to feed many more mouths. I have it easy. So easy.
Some think I’m a better-than-average mom (because they’ve stopped me in the grocery store and told me so), but it’s not true. I just happen to have the ability to tell my own stories in a meaningful and engaging way. Does that make me a better communicator? Definitely. A better mother? Not necessarily.
So, I’ve decided to put my creative skills to use and tell the stories of mothers who are truly unique, inspirational and amazing. If I have enough stories, I’d like to post one at the beginning of every week–Momazing Mondays.
I’ve already got two I’m working on, but I’d love to hear from you if you know any other mothers who might be good candidates (I’m sure you do.) There is no prize (other than some stellar recognition), and I’m looking for out-of-the-park examples of motherhood (even though we’re all pretty darn amazing).
I can’t guarantee I can get them all written, but I’m looking forward to hearing from you with nominations! Simply reply to this post, or email me at catherine DOT poland AT gmail DOT com.
