Mommybloggers may not always agree. They may not all think breastfeeding rocks. Or that it' s perfectly acceptable to let your toddler watch six hours of Noggin in a day. I might; You might not. (In my defense, it was broken up throughout the day.)
But there is one place where there is consensus. That bloggers care. They care about their kids and your kids and the world we live in and global warming and stupid celebrity crap (Ok, thats me talking again.) Most of all bloggers care about each other. They are capable of providing unwavering support, mostly to people they have never met in real life.
It's likely that you have read and appreciated the two bloggers that I am mentioning here.
Whymommy has recently been diagnosed with a rare and an aggressive form of breast cancer. As she writes on her blog, she also has a 5 month old son, a 2.5 year old son, a wonderful adoring and supportive husband, a fantastic family, and good friends who love her. Not only does she have her wits about her in the most stressful time but she has strength and clarity and a wall that is going up around her. Please share your success stories, your inspiration and your support.
Kate from Sweet I Salty has recently suffered a terrible loss. She has survived what I think is the thing that all mommies fear most. She was expecting twins. Only one will come home. I have tried to leave comments for her that say, we are here. We are holding you up. What I really want to say is that I am astounded by her courage and grace, it just doesn't seem appropriate, given what has occurred over the past few weeks, she doesn't care about that right now. I'd like to think this is my way of telling her - By telling others.
I don't pretend to know what either of these brave mamas need right now, but I know there is power in a comment box, and that's a good place to start.
