Power of Moms Blog Contest

I was first introduced to The Power of Moms when my friend Amanda mentioned her involvement in it a long time ago.  I knew that if she was an advocate, it must be an amazing concept.  In fact, she has even gone so far as to form a learning circle of friends that visit together monthly (and which I am slightly envious of not being a part of.)

The title "The Power of Moms" says it all.  It is a strong advocate for this precious role of Motherhood and one that I would love to have more involvement in.

The Power of Moms

So this is where you come in.  I wonder, for so many reasons besides the fact that I could win a chance to go to their retreat for FREE, if my blog shows any inspiration in this regard? 

In some small way I hope that you can see how much I love being a Mom through the screen.  That you know how fiercely I love my children.  That you know that I do not take Motherhood lightly.  But also, how developing ME (my talents and passions) is an example that I want to give to my children. 

To create.  To grow.  To be honest.  To sometimes fail.  To get back up. To love. To learn.     

And I hope that what I express on this blog is what being a deliberate mother is all about.

I realize that my blog is often sarcastic.  My blog is often sad.  My blog is often dramatic and irritable and hopeful and happy.  I believe in showing more than the surface of life and sometimes that real-ness can be raw. But it is because of all of this that I show who I am as a Mother, and I believe...I strongly believe in the power of that.

So if you feel that my blog is worthy of such a nomination in any way, you can go here to say so. You have the chance to nominate 3 blogs, so even if I am not one of them (and that is perfectly okay, btw,) do it for those whom you feel are deserving!

Here is the criteria for eligibility:
•Written by a mom
•Full of inspirational ideas and replicable ideas that focus on deliberate mothering
•Applicable to a wide variety of moms – not focused on one particular religion, race, etc.
•Interesting and fun to read
•Current: updated at least 3x/week

Hopefully, I meet the criteria and if so, thanks so much;)

Vote for me HERE

Also, my dear friend Jenny is quite deserving, and since you can vote for 3, how about you give her some love, too?

I nominated you because you are amazing! Life hasn't always been easy on your family and you have such love and class that I think you're very deserving.

And you're nice. And you're my friend. And you got style. :)
