Mama in the City

A blog about raising my family in downtown Vancouver

Always Looking Up

I would like this part of my life to be about trying to be my best self. Sometimes on the path of trying to learn how to be my best self I find other inspiring women who show qualities that I adore. Personal attributes that I admire and make me think about my own way of life.

Here is my 2010 blog roll of women that I find to be inspirational and amazing. They have all had something big to live through and have allowed themselves to be truthful.

Nie Nie is a beautiful mother who survived a horrific plane crash with her husband. She suffered extensive burns and much suffering but continues to see the beauty in life and in her children.

Gorilla Buns lost her infant son while he was napping and she blogs about her babe and life before and after.

Nugget News is an uplifting look at a mama to four 1 year olds. She experiences all those normal daily hassles that parents have but has them multiplied by four.

The Macs have had a blog for awhile and wrote about the painful loss of their baby daughter from cancer last year. The mom turned her grief into something amazing with her handmade baby items and special playground and she just gave birth to a second child.

Go and check them out and be prepared to be amazed at their life experiences and their continual courage.

I love NieNie. She's one of my daily reads. Amazing. Inspiring. And she totally puts my little trials into perspective.

Thanks for the comment and for the record I have been a reader for many years. I just became a more often reader, and leaver of comments, in the past year. Always enjoy the truth that you have to offer.
