It’s been quite some time since we blogged together. While we love the opportunity to collaborate on the internet, the occasion is bittersweet.
This week, a couple of different areas of our lives intersected in a way we wish it didn’t.
Our lives as moms intersected with our lives as bloggers which would ordinarily be okay, but this intersection created a void for so many people in our local community.
Furthermore, all of it left us in tears. Tears for a heartbroken husband, tears for four girls, and tears for an extended family – none of whom saw any of this coming.
I originally wrote this post for the Best Southwest Moms Blog during Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October.
I decided to run it here because, it’s for an important cause. My friend Tomea, lost her friend to a tragic incident related to domestic violence. Tomea and two of her friends then turned their collective grief into a non-profit organization dedicated to fighting this issues that plagues our country.
Let’s Teach Our Daughters
We need to teach our daughters the difference between a man who flatters her, and a man who compliments her……
A man who spends money on her, and a man who invests in her….
A man who views her as property, and a man who views her properly….
A man who lusts after her, and a man who loves her….
A man who believes he is God’s gift to women, and a man who remembers a woman was God’s gift to man.

And just for kicks, I did know that November is Epilepsy Awareness Month…we’re advocating! 🙂
