Feeling All the Feels…
About a month ago I announced that I will be turning my little blog into a book, and I asked my friends, family and readers to send me stories. Honest, heart-felt stories, the truth behind what it is really like to be a Mama; so that together we can create a book written with Mamas, for Mamas.
The response has been amazing! I have received the most overwhelming amount of support, and my heart has just been bursting with happiness. Messages and calls from family members and amazing friends, all wishing me luck with this new journey. E-mails from Mamas suddenly feeling the urge to put their thoughts onto paper. Women inspired to voice a story that has been too hard to face, or a story that has long been forgotten. I have read stories that have made me laugh and stories that have made be sob. Simply put, I have been blown away by the bravery of Mamas everywhere.
So from the bottom of my heart, thank you for the excitement, the support, and above all, thank you for the vulnerability.
Feeling all the feels!
