Because and just because…
I am feeling very moved today, it could be that I am riding high on hormones, that the weather changed, that I had a really nice piece of cake for breakfast, I can’t say.
I do say this with my whole heart. The Reborn community is an awesome group of humans. We are not all alike, and some of us have things we are working through and some growing to do as human beings (don’t we all, myself included) but life doesn’t hand us all an equal hand and some of us are forced to navigate in storms others don’t, we all have a story.
I would have never thought this would be a big part of my life, ever. I didn’t even know it existed a couple years ago.
I entered a snob. I hate to admit that but I did. I apologize for my crap posts when I first started.
I am humbled by the kindness, the connections and the gracious generosity.
Look around ladies, we are on the fringe… gotta get real with that.
It’s a good fringe and who would think that making babies would be so much fun and create a community of some damn interesting and awesome people.
I had hoped to be at ROSE this year but had to do a last minute cancel (so sad about it). I wondered how I would fit in, I am not easy going, super happy and sweet, I don’t eat ice cream, I have never seen GOT, I don’t belong to a church, I am super liberal and (aggressively) feminist, I can be long winded and dark, bossy and annoying… But I had a feeling it wouldn’t have mattered, that it would be about sharing, meeting each other, showing our work, photos of our kids, learning new techniques, maybe staying up late eating pizza and complaining about husbands, and laughing about things people who don’t do this would never understand (doll geek out).
Those of you going have a blast, take lots of photos, collect stories and come back and share it all with all of us.
It is good to be a part of this whole baby thing.
