and what feels like a lifetime later—-we’ve got Listen To Your Mother show videos!
Much like going to Fitbloggin last week the opportunity to be a part of a group of women who just “got” me was amazing.
We were an eclectic group who had little in common outside of the fact we all use the written word as our way to best express ourselves.
Not all of us were mothers. Not all of us were bloggers. Not all of us were performers.
Some of our writings were funny (as in laugh out loud. some of the best writing Ive heard.).
Some of our writings were powerfully sad (as in I choked up. as in it’s very very hard to make me do that with words.)
Some of our writings were both. Rollercoaster rides in three short minutes of happy to despondent to elation (as in that’s a gift I covet.).
I remember coming home from our first table-read, waking Ren Man and telling him:
These women are UNBELIEVABLE. Their writing is stunning. Breathtaking. I cannot believe Im part of this group.
He harumphed and rolled over and went back to sleep.
I know he didn’t ‘get’ what I was saying until the night of the show when he was able to hear for himself. (He thinks Im the best writing he knows. He’s sweet that way.)
I share these videos knowing how much we—the royal—dont much love videos.
Theyre just time consuming in a way blog reading is not.
Still, I urge you to bookmark Wendi’s post for later.
For the weekend or an evening/afternoon when you have a little YOU-time.
Mother, sister, aunt, friend, cousin, nanny, babysitter WOMAN I promise you’ll find a story in there to which you *entirely* relate.
