As your child's birthday draws near, you might find yourself reflecting back through the years remembering how you felt during the final stages of pregnancy, on those "walking zombie" days with a newborn, on celebrating every new developmental milestone and always looking ahead to plan for your child's future. We're reflecting back over the years too!! Join us next week as we begin our 11th anniversary countdown to September 10th! You're invited to take part in fun activities, reflections and sharing, and celebrate all week long. Stay tuned for more details!
What stands out in your mind when you take that walk down "memory lane" on your days with us at Pregnancy.org?
Through the years, I have met such amazing women and have some terrific memories! For the September 2001 group -- I recall those late night chats that ran the gamut of sharing a bit of everything! Know you're missed!
I have witnessed some of the most compassionate spirits abounding within this community (all of it!!) on any number of instances. We have shared loss, battled serious illness/disorders, and celebrated the gift of life -- over and over again -- together! I love seeing the "sisterhood" develop within boards! That sense of familial squabbles and equally fierce protection of one another is heartening.
The debate board ladies -- you have challenged me (and continue to do so!) to view things from new perspectives and strengthened my understanding of my own convictions. I'm certain that you can lay claim to a few of those pesky if-I-did-not-know-better-since-I-MUST-be-too-young-but-would-otherwise-describe-as-*gag*-gray hairs that are in ONE spot... and definitely owe me new keyboards as I have had more than one moment where I laughed too hard while attempting to drink coffee. (By the way -- snorting coffee? NOT recommended!!) Thank you for being here!
Finally, the moments that I have shared within our core team over the years! Teresa, Nadine, Julia, Michelle, Nicole, Laura(T), and Joee -- all uniquely special! You are missed but your personal "mark" remains on both the site and with me! Marla -- YOU, my friend.... are an incredible gift! You're continued support -- professionally and personally -- remains a blessing. Shellie, Julie, and Angelia......... you all have been sanity savers, teachers, and best friends. ((((((((HUGS)))))))))) I remain grateful to Mollee for granting me the opportunity to serve within this community of extraordinary women that make up our Pregnancy.org community and welcome sharing new experiences with our latest team member -- LauraSP. She's already learned this is quite an adventure... and one of the best ever!
Do you have one special story / memory to share? I'd love to hear it! (Obviously, I've hit a nostalgic note! LOL)
