We only have two meetings left for this year – this week, the 18th of May and the 1st of June. It’s been a journey, literally, a wild and precious journey. And one that we have shared together, with words, with tears, with joy and with delectable morning treats. Our community of strong, compassionate and supportive moms will join together for two more meetings to finalize the map of our journeys for this year, while propelling us into the additional places we may visit, and challenges we may face.
The Steering Team is a way to contribute to the building of relationships and supporting the growth of women in our community. You get to be a part of the tribe’s leadership, using the voices of our membership to guide our discussions and our activities. We would like to invite you to be a part of this group of devoted moms, giving a little bit of time each month to ensuring our meetings are welcoming, engaging, and nourishing of the heart and soul.
Consider one of our open positions: Activities, Childcare, Hospitality or assisting with Communications. We have several planning meetings over the summer (childcare provided) in-person when able, meet once each month during our year, and then keep communicating with one another over a private FB group we share. There is a Position Description sheet on our Steering Committee page here.
Tomorrow we come together as moms, to discuss being parents. Tomorrow we will talk and explore what it means to support our children on their journey, their one wild and precious life.
We also have a very special opener for us all. Make sure you get there for our prompt start at 9:30am because we will be treated to a short activity around play led by one of our members, Laurel. It will be fun. It will connect us with one another. It will lead us into an amazing conversation about supporting and guiding our children on their journeys.
See you tomorrow. 9:30am, Grace Church on Day Road, May 4th.
We have explored the path we may take in determining how to live our one wild and precious life. We have discussed the tools we need including the all-important self-care. We have considered the role that friends and partners play as companions on our journey. And the reason we all come together as a part of Mom’s Morning Retreat is that which gives us commonality – we are all moms. We are moms to wee ones, to older children, we are caregivers to one, two, three, or more children, some our own and some need our care without being our own.
As moms, as parents, our journeys may have taken unexpected and exciting twists and turns along the way. Perhaps you had a plan, before kids – did that plan stay true or get altered? How have children changed who you are? Do kids mean you make decisions or consider life’s choices differently?
We haven’t seen one another for a few weeks with five weeks in March and Spring break thrown in there. And now we are able to come together again, to connect and replenish as we have all year. Let’s discuss the role that our kids play in our lives. Let’s together consider how they have shaped us while we in turn shape them. Let’s imagine where our one wild and precious life will go as a result of being moms and raising amazing little humans.
We look forward to seeing you all on Thursday, 4/20, at Grace Church on Day Road at 9:30-11am. Together we will eat, be merry, reconnect, enjoy the spring blossoms and *maybe* sun, and replenish our souls in discussion. Only a handful of meetings are left for this year so don’t miss a single one to end our season together exploring our one wild and precious life!
