Storehouse of Mama articles for encouragement & camaraderie…and other uplifting gems: 2014 blog review

Wowza!  And that’s a rap! Another one gone. Amazing.

As I was sitting down to pick out a few gems from my blogs this year I realized what I most wanted to do was make a little storehouse of Mama articles that all the mothers I know could bookmark and share with their friends.  Something to look back on when you need a little encouragement, or to pass on when you know someone who does.  Sometimes the best balm is just knowing someone else has been there too!  And I have!

I’ve two tiny beings (3 1/2 and now 21 months) so I’ve been in the thick of it for a while now.  With each day we’re moving out of the intensity zone of having two so little, but it’s a time I’m not likely to forget.  And if I do I can review these blogs.  So here it is– a year in review– Mama articles for encouragement and camaraderie, and other uplifting gems.

Thanks for riding with me on the journey.  I’m looking forward to even more and better (including podcasts) blogging next year so I hope to see you there!
