Thank You SouleMama readers!! For all of the kind, encouraging and touching responses that you've shared with me during my time here, as interim SouleMama. It is fulfilling on so many levels, to put words and thoughts and feelings out there to share with this community. I also get a greater appreciation for the effort and love that Amanda puts into this space. Not to mention the time she puts into her crafty creations, her books and, of course, her children. Well, perhaps I will mention that time. The many nights I crash into bed and fall asleep to the productive sounds of SouleMama, emanating from her studio. The corresponding mornings where I have the unenviable task of peeling her from the bed, before I leave for work, to spend her days with three growing, beautiful yet oft times, demanding children. Sometimes, even I don't know how she gets it all done. Maybe it's the power inducing combo of ice cream and wine. Maybe it's the children that sneak into her studio and perch on a chair just to chat with mama and "help" for a few minutes. I guess maybe it just has to do with love. She shares a lot of that (She doesn't share the ice cream).
I know this is an interesting chapter in our lives and we've heard from and been inspired by so many of you out here. For that I give a heart felt, Thank You.
