The Spirit of Motherhood: Surprises + Challenges + Memories | 17 Listeners Share
#177: Our special tribute to our listener community. 17 listener moms open their hearts to us. In an effort to make a grand gesture to my favorite mothers on earth (all of you), I posted on social media, “Who wants to come on the podcast?” And I took the first 17 listeners who signed up. The only requirement was that these mamas have listened to at least 7 episodes. Most of these women had listened to all of them.
We recorded these conversations over three days. My "mom questions" were basic. And the responses were profound. I am humbled by your life stories and your strength. There's no better mother's day company, hands down. I feel like I fell in love with 17 mamas this week.
What's your favorite memory of your mother?
What do you want your children to remember about you as their mother?
How has motherhood surprise you? In what ways has it changed you?
What's a life hack that's made your life as a mom a little easier?
Thank you for the wisdom and support you share in this episode. Happy Mother’s Day to all of us. And all of the mothers who came before us. Thank you for sharing the podcast and helping it grow. Thank you to the 17 listeners who dared to reach out and share their voices with us in honor of our mom community. xx Ellie
