Hello ALL - I'm writing a book. When my children attended a local co-op nursery school, I'd hang out with the other moms and we'd talk about the joys and challenges of parenting. Sometimes there would be a lot of posturing going on, and then just one person would admit to not knowing what she was doing and feeling ashamed. There would be a collective sigh, the posturing would stop, and often a different kind of conversation would ensue; one of shared experiences, one filled with empathy, compassion and love. My vision for this book is that it embodies this experience; the experience of looking at our "failings" as mothers and of expressing acceptance, unconditional love and compassion for ourselves and for each other. I'm intending to foster more kindness, patience and support toward mothers; to foster an atmosphere in which mothers can come down from their pedestals and be accepted as mere human beings doing their best...

I'm looking for a wider range of mothers than those in my physical community, so I'm next reaching out to my online Mothering community. If you are interested in sharing, please contact me by Private Message.

Love Angela
