Yahoo Mothers Group. " This page is dedicated especially to
Mothers who through the journey of motherhood will find that they have
landed the most difficult job on earth! At the same time,
these mothers agree that no other job could ever surpass the bountiful
rewards and joys of motherhood: these are priceless treasures.
Having said that, we believe that the joys and pains we experience are
similar. They only differ in its extent and intensity.
Whatever it is, we have found that sharing each other's burden and knowing
that one is not alone is a key in coping especially with our difficulties
and struggles. The main objective of this particular Mothers' Support
Group therefore, is to play a supporting role in encouraging total
commitment to this very high calling. It is our desire that
we, even as mothers, will rise up to be a total person - as a woman, wife
and mother, finding fulfillment, first in God, and then in all others
around us. We offer support in prayer, counseling, fellowship and
guidance in the Word of God. We are also linked to a network
of women's groups for a wholesome approach to our support system."
