This is also my story

The other thing I’ve always known is that I’m a mom.

Before I conceived . . . before any children were born to me, I knew I was a mom.  It would’ve been childbirth or adoption or just bringing people into my life somehow, but I knew I was a mom.

Breakfast-in-Bed

And I knew that being a mom was hugely important.  I knew what it was like to have a damaged mother and I didn’t want to continue that.  I wanted to be a mom who helped.  Who healed.  Who encouraged and empowered.

Those are my truths:  There is a Truth bigger and truer than we will ever be and that I am a mom.  Those are the truths I want to center my story on.  The story of my search for Truth and my story of being a mom.
