This past year has been a sparse time for blogging. As much as I love writing, a twin pregnancy, a five-week stay at NICU, and the adjustment back home has kept my attention, with little mental focus to spare.
Now that I have settled with my new blessings, and there is another new mom in the family, my “heart-focus” has switched to another subject. I had limited support from the usual places from which a new mother could gather strength. So many others, either by distance or bad relations, find themselves isolated while they learn to swim the waters of motherhood alone.
Thus, I am writing a new blog series called, “Dear Mama.” It will be a series of messages I would send to friends and relatives who are entering stages of motherhood that I have recently completed. These blog posts are just that – a blog. Very likely, my audience can be overwhelmed with expert advice from the experienced mothers in their lives, but for those who are feeling lonely in their motherhood, I hope this series will become a source of encouragement.
If anything, this will be something interesting for my daughter to read, one day.
Keep an eye out for the #DearMama tag, and I shall post the first installment shortly.
