My Momma Muses are the women I most admire who are also, as it happens, mommas themselves. These are an inspiring collection of women I’ve met through my personal and professional life who seem to have the whole balance figured out (though I’m sure they’ll argue that point). It’s my hope that by sharing their stories, what inspires them, what moves them, their tricks for getting through the day running two businesses (their own defined by the government + a household) that you yourself will find a renewed strength in yourself and your abilities. You’re capable and strong, and having a community around to remind you of that is the whole point of thing thing, right? Okay now, let’s get to it.

Family has been my top priority in my life. It is important for children to know they can depend on you to pick them up from school on time, help during hard times at school and be there to listen during difficult relationships.
Pray for your family.
My mother could sew anything. She would make a skirt and then croquet a vest all in the same day for my sisters to wear that night. She could make old furniture look new. As a grandmother I especially remember her cooking and reading with my girls.
Children are more secure when they know what to expect. I found that schedules were a very big part in this. (for my sanity and the children)
I feel like I have done all I can do for my girls and watching them with their children has been a humbling experience. To think that these precious bundles are a part of me, my daughter and her husband is very special. As a grandmother I can now enjoy spoiling my grandchildren and pray that they will remember me as a loving grandmother one day.
I would have to say that my slim wedding band is my most treasured ring. It has been on my finger since our wedding almost 38 (June 27, 1981) years ago.
I cherish the special earrings and cuff that Mary Frances made me for her wedding so I keep those for special occasions. I do wear the birch bark cuff most everyday with a bangle from my husbands mother and a tennis bracelet from my husband.
Thank you, momma!
Just a friendly reminder: today (May 8th) is the last day to place orders for Mother's Day delivery!
