The Maine Mama is who?

 Mother of two boys, married for 20+ years, coming to the crossroads where my little boys turn 18 and begin their own adventures. My goal is to guide them, love them, support them, and hope that what I’ve taught them takes them to where they want to be in life…which as a parent, I hope, is better than where I have ended up. I’m not complaining mind you, just hoping they have more than I did/do…isn’t that every parent’s hope for their children?

But I’m at a place where finding my voice again and the courage to project it is very important to me. This blog is simply my happy place, where I can write and post photos, connect with other writers/bloggers with a similar life or experience or voice.

    I look forward to sharing the journey with you, and thank you so much for visiting my blog. How I remember those days when my boys turned 18 and faced their crossroads. Certainly a defining moment when you are a mum knowing that life is about to change forever. Very bittersweet.
    So great that you have found your voice again so glad that I get to hear it! It’s lovely to meet you Maine Mama – Sherri 🙂

      Well thank you so much. While there’s a lot of me not tucked in there, that’s the surface version I think. Deep dark secrets reserved for the few and trusted! LOL

I love positive feedback, but who doesn’t?? your blog is great as well, definitely the life I hope to achieve at some point. travel around and see places totally foreign to small town life here in Maine…here’s hoping. see you around as well, and should you get to Maine give me a shout!!!

    Yours is perhaps the best ‘who’ page I’ve ever read.

      Thank you so much! I truly appreciate that compliment. The opinions and words of others on my writing mean the world to me.

      Can I ask what made it “perhaps the best?”

    I’m originally from New Brunswick, so I always delight in connecting with people from my “neck of the woods”. I am beginning my journey of raising a boy (five years in). I, too, find my blog a “happy place” where I can pour out my feelings. And… it’s cheaper than therapy! Thanks for visiting my page!
