I apologize for being so quiet over the last month. I spent a few weeks of absolute bliss in my home country of Zimbabwe, after having been away for 9 years. It was an amazing feeling to be surrounded by loved ones, and to introduce my children to a huge family that they had never met before. We also visited stunning South Africa, which is where I photographed this majestic zebra while on safari. Since metaMOMphorsis is all about moms, I thought you might enjoy photos of the mothers and babies I encountered in the wild, so I have included them in this post.
Before I left, I wanted to alert you about my absence, but I promised my dear husband that I would not announce it on social media lest someone break in and steal all of our belongings while we were away (-; I hardly think that would have happened, but… if he is going to put up with me sharing myself online, the least I could do was honor his paranoid, but small request!
I am happy to be back, especially since this month marks the one year anniversary of the metaMOMphorsis blog – woo hoo! I can hardly believe that it has been a full year.
I started writing here in part as self therapy, but more importantly with the goal of helping women who are going through the difficult issues that we modern-day women have to face. I would have started this blog many years ago if I had the courage to do so at the time. I am so thankful to those who were instrumental in helping me find my voice (you know who you are!).
I remember being very nervous and hesitant to share my name and thoughts, knowing that not everyone would agree with my personal perspective. Of course, I also fully appreciated that future employers may be totally unimpressed by the presence and content of my blog. But I came to the decision that if I could help even one woman by sharing myself, then it would have been worth it. I have been very encouraged by the positive comments from my readers, and I thank you for coming along on my journey with me.
If you enjoy what I have to say, I ask that you think of at least three women that you know who would be interested in my blog, and share a link to the blog with them. Also, if there are any issues or topics that you would like me to write about, please shoot me a message. I love hearing from my readers, and I truly appreciate your support.
I am raising my virtual champagne glass in celebration of you and wishing you a great year!
