After having Emily my life completely changed going from a working woman to a stay-at-home mom clueless as to what was going on. I had no idea how badly I’d crave adult conversation & interaction. I kept finding myself in a place of longing with nowhere to go. My sister encouraged me to pursue that need & to initiate friendships. So I started texting groups of friends that I’d be somewhere at a specific time if anyone wanted to join me & could even bring a friend. There were a few times a couple of people would come & there were others that it was just me & my little girl hanging out.
The more moms I talked to the more I realized there was a real need for a moms community so I recently created a mom group on facebook. I have taken it upon myself to host at least 2 events per month, one mommy only event & one playdate. I have to say I think I am gifted in the area of event & party planning so this quickly became the perfect thing for me.
I honestly can't believe how well it has taken off. There are so many moms who were desperately longing for this type of community. I am actually meeting with the leadership team of our churches moms group to talk about combining our efforts. I am so excited to see what the Lord has in store for our group and for the moms in our community.
All this to say, if you are longing for a mommy community than step out and create one. I have been more than blessed by these women.
And now I leave you with this just because it's cute, Ems playing with her cousins (yes they are triplets):
