When I became a mom I realized how much I had to make some changes in my social life. Most of my long-time friends are single or married but without kids still, and although it is still fun hanging out with them things were never really the same. Moms have a lot of questions, stress, frustration, and stories to tell and while they are eager to listen and give some words of advice, there is just element of understanding and empathetic support that they can’t offer me. So I decided I had to meet new friends who were struggling moms too. And boy, I couldn’t be any happier with my decision.
I now have a wonderful set of mom friends who I regularly spend time with. Having them has made motherhood a more wonderful experience. They play a huge role in making motherhood less crazy and more simple-they serve as my sounding board, my advisers, my teachers, and most of all they take away the feelings of isolation and loneliness of being a stay-at-home mom.
I thank God for giving me such wonderful friends. How about you? Do you have mom friends too? How are they a blessing to your life? Please share your thoughts with me!
