don't let the title fool you...

Before I share some really exciting news I just have to take a minute.... I want to thank my mother for making me the woman I am today.  For sacrificing her own dreams, time and energy so that I could follow my dreams and see so many of them come true and bear fruit.  Thank you Mom for being true to your self and true to the calling which God gave you.  Thank you for being a safe place for me to be myself; flaws and all.  Thank you for being the woman I hope to be someday.  I admire you so ardently and hope to be the mother to my girls that you were and always have been to me.  I love you more than I can express through a card, through a blog, or even through words.  So I'll show you how much I love you the next time we hug. Until then, I remain, your faithful daughter. Happy Mother's Day!!

I couldn't resist using Mother's Day to not only celebrate my own mother and other wonderful mothers in my life but to let you know a little "series" I am kicking off to on my blog.


Y'all inspired me after writing my previous posts about mothering and ministering to think and dig deep.  What I would have done when I was a single gal with a question about life would have been to call up a knowledgable friend, meet her for coffee and pick her brain. But since life is a little busy I took the opportunity to interview some mothers, friends and women in my life some questions about things they've learned along the way.

But! Don't let the title fool you.  There are pearls of wisdom for anyone interested in balancing life's many plates that are spinning in your own season right now.  And I asked some of the women to speak plainly to the singles and "no children" women who read this blog.

So I hope no matter where you are in life, you will grab a cup of coffee/tea/hot cocoa or whatever you like to sip while reading some wonderfulness and tune in to read more from what these awesome women have to offer. I really am tickled pink to share my friends with you! 

And these questions are in no ways exhaustive and the list of people was my spur of the moment fresh from the Lord people, but as I pondered this series so many more women came to mind.  So I hope you will use the comments section as the series progresses to ask questions of your own AND to chime in with what has worked for you all.

I'm really SO excited to share this with you and I hope this blesses you as it has me!

With love!
