"This is very true Sopia, I have personally experienced that feeling of losing yourself while being a stay at home mom to 7! I am a paralegal by profession and I took almost 3 yrs off the work scene with my 5th daughter; when she was a little older…"
Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
Hi there mommies! I really do not know what to tell you here actually lol - I am a mommy of 7 (daughters) which most people think is absolute madness and always ask "how do you do it"? I get tempted to give them intimate details of me and my husband's sex life - but I hold off and just say "lots of prayer and sacrifices".
Essentially that is the truth too; afterall, being a mommy of one is a tedious enough, a self-sacrificial journey that requires a woman to morph from one acquired skill to the next more often than any professional job or university course could have ever prepared you for.
Overall, motherhood saved my life in a sense because it gave me the strength and determination I needed to overcome some very bad, self-destructive life situations like a seriously abusive previous marriage that led me down a very bad path at one point many years ago. Throughout everything I have learnt so much and my goal to give my girls every opportunity they require in order to be successful is what has driven me to better myself and become self-sufficient in every aspect of my life.
I hope that what I share will be useful to other mommies and I sure do find the tips and advice from other moms to be a treasure chest that gives me the extra lift I need on a bad day which is why I joined the blogging community in the first place. It has given me an outlet to speak and connect with other women all around the world who can probably benefit from hearing about my experiences while I also benefit from hearing about their own.
Motherhood is a miracle of life in every sense and it is certainly worth sharing, caring and encouraging one another to push on through it all because when our beautiful babies are grown and moving out to find their own lives and families we will all be in our little rocking chair on the front porch looking at the quiet yard and remembering those care-free giggles and crazy screams that we never thought would transform so quickly in to the adult voices that call us from university or wherever the future takes our little ones.
All the best during this amazing (yet exhausting) chapter of your life and may your coffee cup be ever full :-)
Peace and love,
