We Are Connected



I walk a path each day of my choosing. 
My journey as a Mother is mine.

You walk a path each day of your choosing. 
Your journey as a Mother is yours.

We may walk a different path.

Our journey may be different.

But we are connected.


Connected by the love we feel for the little beings we call our son or daughter.

Connected by the smile that graces our face when our little one brings joy into our day.

Connected by the happiness that fills and warms our hearts.

Connected by the challenges being a Mother has forced us to face.


It does not matter the path you choose, we are connected. We are Mothers. It is a truly extraordinary gift we share.

We must stand together despite our differences. 

We must support each other, embrace each other and let go of judgement.

Our children are the future and how we treat each other is a reflection of how they will treat each other, today and in the future.

Let's stand united on this journey of Mothering despite our different paths.

This journey of Motherhood has connected us...like it or not.

  4. Yes YES YES!!!! I'm am so grateful to be connected to all the other mothers - past and present. And i'm even more grateful to have connections via this blog world with all of the awesome mamas I have met. And I'm grateful for the practice that motherhood brings to me. in my own experience as a mother and looking in (from the outside) of all the other mothers I know and don't know. Oh the support that a mother needs. We can all do so much to support each other... even... especially... when we don't understand those 'differences' that you talk about. :)

    hugs!!!

    1. Thanks Jules. I so agree with you and I am too so very grateful for the connections I have made through this blog. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would find the community I have found here. And the best part is we are all different and we bring different things to the table. I learn so much each day from all of you and for that I am so very grateful.

    1. Thanks Amanda. I totally agree, it takes a village, right? We need to be a village not only for our children but for ourselves.
