Someone asked me today why I blog, and I can't say it any better than Tara Whitney on her blog today...
"dont you agree that we can feel so alone and so different and so isolated as women and mothers? and the internet has made it possible to connect - so that we no longer have to feel that way.
i think its safe to say that no matter what you are going through in your life, or what obstacles you are trying to overcome…you are not alone in your fight."

"My ability to get through my day greatly depends on the relationships that I have with other women.
We all need that kind of community in our lives, but it is difficult to create if we are unable to sustain meaningful relationships with other women.
Y'all know what I'm talking about.
We have to be able to champion other women.
We have to root for each other's successes and not delight in one another's failures."
