We have passed mid-summer and it is flying by! WHEEEE…there it goes. I’m not a big fan of bucket lists, however there are some things that I have always wanted to do! As a young child, I wanted to be an undercover operative for the CIA in Russia….in a way I still would love to do that.
Back down here on earth, though, being on a podcast has been one of those pie in the sky ideas for a long time. Well, I actually got to live the dream and be on an amazing podcast with Read with You.
Filling Bucket Lists And Mom’s Cup
Honestly, listening to this brings tears to my eyes…it’s not just that I had this opportunity, but it is all the emotions looking back on our journey of homeschooling and seeing how it has blessed our family.
However, my real purpose of this podcast isn’t just to fill my bucket, but to fill the cup of others who need it. As a newer homeschool mom, I really struggled with the sometimes overwhelming sense of loneliness.
Being a mom is the hardest job ever! Honestly, there is not another career that takes your entire life, physically, emotionally, and mentally, like parenting. Homeschooling raises that bar a hundredfold.
It took us so long to find our homeschool group and grow our connections. There were many lonely years and days when I wished there were someone, anyone I could just call up to chat for even five minutes. I have been blessed to have found homeschool moms who were ahead of me on the journey to help out when I needed answers to really big questions.
Being The Light And A Light Bulb
I have always tried to be that person for other homeschool moms, as well. I know what it is like to need the support you can’t find. I’ve been there on the hard days when I wished I there were someone who could just talk me through it and give me a hug.
This podcast not only bolstered my resolve to continue to build this resource center, but enkindled a new dream and that is what I have to share today!
At the end of this podcast, my inner wheels started spinning. How could I create that community that moms need and deserve? It seemed like a bucket list pipe dream, but I spent some serious time thinking about just that. After consulting with other homeschool moms, I had a vision to go along with my idea!
Eureka! That’s It!
What if I built a group online that was closed for privacy of the members, but an open book once inside for those who belonged? Moms could ask anything and get everything they needed to keep thriving. Part moms social club, part “professional development.” What if I could help homeschool moms avoid those dark and dreary days that I went through when I would have given anything for a little encouragement?
