Welcome to Bounce Back, Momma!
Well, this will be my very first blogging experience. I’ve only heard about the world of bloggers. I have read one or two that a friend sent to me every now and then, but I had NO idea that this whole universe existed.
Why Bounce Back, Momma? It’s a place where moms can find common ground, acceptance and encouragement being ….well, just being themselves. There was a time in my life where I found myself thrown into the chaos of single motherhood (that included me and my 2 kiddos). On top of that, I had no college degree, no job, no money, and no place to go. Gosh, that was really scrapping the bottom there! I’m feeling sorry for myself already!! So, I decided to go back to school and get my life together. With the hope and love of Jesus, and support of my family and friends, we made it through. Although my hair turned gray earlier than it should’ve and I have a very deep wrinkle in the middle of my forehead that is screaming for Botox, we made it!
Now, I am living the life that 10 years ago looked like a dream. Love found it’s way to me again with my most wonderful husband who chose to be a daddy to 2 kids who didn’t have one. And, after a couple of years of marriage and another “shorty” our family makes 5.
So, long story very, very, VERY short, I want to help moms out there know that there are others just like you (and me) who need to know that they are loved, appreciated and super important in God’s plan and in the lives of their children.
Y’all remember that movie “Parenthood” where the grandma compared life to a roller coaster or a merry-go-round? Well, the roller coaster is what life is all about. The ups and downs, the excitement of climbing into the coaster, and the nervousness that something bad might happen. The laughter and the screams that go along with the falls, twists and turns. That’s what it’s about. Let’s get on the ride!
