(Don’t worry Mom, I will use a lint brush before I wear this in public!)
Saturday, May 4, will be the end of this whirlwind of a “summer camp” and I am excited, sad, nervous, and downright supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. At 2 pm, myself along with 13 of the most incredible women are going to put a megaphone to all things MOTHER. Bring some tissues and get ready to laugh, cry, and everything in between.
I cannot believe how lucky I have been to meet these women – they are inspiring, authentic, brave, beautiful, and I want to be just like all of them when I grow up. It makes me want to move to Rhode Island so I can be near them. (AND to NH, Western MA, and well, I am lucky to already be a neighbor to one of them!) Honestly, I sort of don’t want this to end.
I want to hear more and more of their stories – to learn from them, to laugh with them, to cry with them, and to just walk this journey of motherhood alongside them.
They have helped me to be brave and unashamed of my own stories and struggles, but more importantly, they have reminded me that we are in this TOGETHER and that our voices should be heard.
And Mom, I hope that this world will get to hear YOUR voice through me. Thanks for taking the time to see my full potential in the midst of all those music lessons, sports, math drills, and what you had in mind for me. YOU are a big part of why I am here today and getting to do this really remarkable thing alongside some awesome women on Saturday.
Love you and thanks. I will always do my best to remember to listen to your mother!
P.S. My mom is 3,000 miles away, but you probably aren’t! Come see our show SATURDAY, May 4th, 2 pm at the Providence Public Library. You will not want to miss this! Get your tickets here: http://ltymprovidence.brownpapertickets.com/
