My mother died just as I was beginning my own adventure of mothering. So many times in the frantic daily activity or pacing with a crying baby, I wanted a word from Mom.
I've also lived much of my adult life outside my own culture. Again, I didn't have much help or advice from older women who had blazed the way before me.
My heart is for young women and young moms. To be there for them. Oh, I may not be in the room to sit down and drink a cup of tea and share a laugh or a tear. But maybe my words will be there for them at the right time.
