Love Note for the Museum of Motherhood


Have you stopped over to the Museum of Motherhood blog lately?
There are great discussions happening there about Re-Framing Motherhood.
Fueled by the passion of Joy Rose and Dr. Amber Kinser, the site is a cyber-home for a vision of a real live museum dedicated to archiving, celebrating and communicating about Motherhood.

There are events coming up this spring.
FeMail will be blogging there every Tuesday through Mother’s Day.

I count on your discussion.
I celebrate what you are doing as women in the world today, children or not, you are creating, and this, I honor.

Here is my Mom, Joanne Ruth Schauer Banks Schmeling doing one of her favorite things. One of mine too. Boy, do I miss her today.

Hope your day is Springy!
Love, S

    Hello, had to stop over and introduce myself to you. Thank you for the stunning comment you left on my post at BlogHer.

    I have a 16 yr old, too, and I just drove him to his first job interview yesterday.

    I’m still a crumpled mess on the floor.

    Lovely to meet you!

    The teapot is on.
    Wish I could share our dinner with you. My daughter would love to meet your guys. And the 16 year olds could compare pects…or math answers.

    Love that you stopped over, Suzi

    Hi, Suzi! I read this a week or so ago, and visited the Mom Museum. Have been pondering how our relationships with our children change as they age, leave home, start new lives. How I find myself less identified as a “mother” even though, of course, I still am. Still talk with my kids–sometimes, daily, sometimes weekly–but feel a distance with the word “mother” and more a connection with the word “friend”. This has puzzled me a little. Hard to find words to even explain it. Always love stopping by your blog.

    P.S. OK, now I’ve been looking at the picture of your smiling mother and imagining how you are missing her presence in your life. Thinking about my mother and already imagining that ache in my heart…

    How did I get so lucky as to land a friend like you Kathy?
    Your big heart reaches me through our blogs every single day.
    Thank you for reading and seeing me.
    You are right.
    All my love, Suzi
