Moms are my Best Friends

Moms are my Best Friends

I know school moms, blogger moms, taekwon-do moms, do-it-all moms, and take-it-easy moms.  I know moms who:

  • write;
  • photograph;
  • coach;
  • teach;
  • lead;
  • style;
  • sell;
  • appraise;
  • volunteer;
  • play;
  • train;
  • support;
  • design;
  • market;
  • heal;
  • compose;
  • create;
  • cook;
  • work;
  • and stay-at-home.

I know many of the moms who read this blog. Moms help me make sense of things. I feel like I instantly connect with moms or grandmothers I might happen to interact with over the course of a day. We just “get it” and we “get each other.”  It’s a pretty cool feeling to have — the feeling that you’re not alone — especially at a time when you are often isolated.

So thanks to all the moms out there who really are my best friends — whether you know it or not. My days would not be as fulfilling or my knowledge so deep without your words of wisdom and encouragement.

And I certainly can’t leave out a big hug to my own perfect mother!  When she asked what I wanted for Mother’s Day, I replied, “Just being your daughter is present enough!”  Sickening, huh?  But true. In the end, we worked out a deal where I get to go for a special coffee or walk with just my Mom and sis. Two of my favorite moms in the whole world – and also my best friends.

Disclaimer: This is not to say that if you are not a mom, you’re not my best friend. It’s Mother’s Day — humor me with a little poetic license:)

You have made your own mark on your own kids, my kids, and probably 1000s of other kids as a Mom who loves nature and loves to write about play in nature. So hats off to you!
