Wednesday

Twitter Tuesday!

All of us Tweeters get to star in our own reality TV shows. We get to define how we are perceived and we hope that someone, anyone, is watching.  Some people say that they Tweet for other reasons. But nobody is manipulating their thoughts into 140 characters unless they want someone to read it.

This week I have discovered the moms listed below who are living la vida and Tweeting away.  Here are some things that caught my attention. I discovered a mom who had four children before 20, has raised them and is still fabulous! I found a mom who is married to a minister. The fact that manages to live in that fishbowl, raise her children and still finds time to Tweet makes me think that she actually may be a saint!
I discovered a new social network for working moms that I have gravitated to like a moth to a flame. Being a working mother is an exercise in patience, humility and continuous readjusting.  I need all of the help that I can get!

I have found moms who are committed to their children and to running.  As a lapsed runner turned inconsistent runner they inspire me to do better.  Is the Pittsburgh ½ marathon in the cards for me this Spring? Maybe it is if I can get a little more inspiration from my Twitter friends! I’ll keep you posted!

I have been particularly encourage by the moms who brutally honest about motherhood, the blessed, the boring, and the balancing. Being a mother takes everything you have and then a little bit more. However, comprehensive tales of motherhood are incredibly hard to find.  A lot of folks only focus on the glamorous and neglect to share the gritty.  For that reason, I am eternally grateful to Twitter for helping me find MY people—those moms who are refreshingly honest.
For good measure I included an actress and a supermodel.  In reality they are not really MY people.  However, I think that Twitter also leaves a little room for fantasy!

(I know it’s no longer Tuesday on EST. However, last night I fell asleep mid-blog post.  It’s gotta still be Tuesday somewhere…)
Since I'm giving a shout out to moms who have taught me lessons. I thought I'd post a photo of my mom, the baby and me.
