As I return to work today I notice that I have inadvertently become a member of a new group of women. Suddenly, women that never bothered to speak to me, or only said hello in passing are pausing to ask me how I am doing. We have had real conversations for the first time ever.
So what group did I join while I was away? The sisterhood of the mothers!
I like being a part of this new group. People want to know how I am doing and how I am feeling. Suddenly I am interesting!
I can see how the future is going to unfold. Me and the other mothers will lament over school activities, sick children and the latest Di.sney sensation! We’ll stop by each other’s desks to share school pictures! We’ll trade recipes and tips on throwing the best birthday parties!
Okay, maybe not so much.
But I definitely feel like I am a part of a special group.
And I like it.
