(Book Study: The Ten
Habits of Happy Mothers by Meg Meeker – Habit #2)
I am struggling to put my thoughts into words, so for now I
will share a quote that touched me deeply.
“Mothers are forced
to live deeply. From the moment our
children are born, terror strikes our hearts in a new way. . . . Having
children keeps us from pretending that life is easy and cushy. And the stark reality that it can be quite
cruel hits us square in the face. And
that is probably the most compelling reason why we mothers who want to do more
than simply survive need other mothers as friends who understand the
undercurrent of angst we can feel.
Friends help us to thrive in the midst of emotional tumult and cold.”
