Why are we so tough on other women? Women we know, women we don't know. Doesn't seem to matter. They judge us, we judge them. Some of us may not admit it, because most of us aren't proud of it. So why do we do it? Why is it so hard to accept that one word: Mom, Woman, Sister, Friend ect... can mean something different to each person? I don't say that I'm proud of my choices so that you can feel bad about yours. I say that I am proud of my choices because while they aren't always easy, they are the right choices for me. Lets be proud of each other, encourage each other, support each other in all walks of life because we are alike in at least one way. We are women. Decendants of Eve. Sisters. Let us lead our daughters by example of love, acceptance, forgiveness, and grace. So that they don't make the same mistakes that we do. Happy Friday! Hope you get to spend time with women you love this weekend. I do!!!

  1. amen! in my more recent persective on friendships and motherhood, asking questions of a friend has been a HUGE way to overcome any tendancy to judge. it somehow diffuses my sinful habit of falling into that judging mindset and wondering why a friend made x,y,or z mothering decision. i wasn't that great at friendships until i started doing that and made a world of difference for me.

    on a similar note, do you ever find yourself in a situation where you find a friend sharing a mothering type story, habit, "win", and it feels like it's being shared more so to brag than to share a helpful tip to a fellow mom?


our goals are simple

as women, mothers, and friends, our goals are simple:

love our husband(s) and babies. be kind and generous to those in our lives. to learn and to help teach. strengthen our faith and the faith of our family. be gentle to the earth and its inhabitants. stop and smell the roses (or at least the crayons!)
