There are times when I get very self conscious about blogging.
I don't share all my posts on Facebook, but when I do, I wonder what my "friends" think of me. Do they think I'm annoying or self-aborbed for writing about my experiences as a crazy, but trying the best as she can mama?
However, I try to overcome those fears of judgement for two reasons.
1. I want to write our family story.
2. I want to connect with other mamas who are on the same wild road of motherhood.
When life got bumpy with lupus, a diagnosis of Asperger's Syndrome for my son, and stage 3 melanoma for the then 30 year old hubs, I felt compelled to transfer the overwhelmed, grieving inner voice into written words. I read my friend Greta's blog and realized blogging would be the perfect place for me to write and connect.
I never imagined the bond that would form between other mamas and myself. I never imagined people I've never met in real life becoming such powerful encouragers in my life. And while it may seem odd to some, it has been just what I had hoped for and more.
