A Wonderful Welcome

I thank all of you that have taken the time to welcome me here. I must say, I am a bit intimidated by the expertise and credentials of all of you! I am a simple stay at home mother of modest means, by no means a world traveller, and I have to admit that compared to the trials, tribulations, and accomplishments of you all, I am quite naive. However, I do have a voice, one that I feel honored to share with you. I have always longed to make the world a better place for my, and all, children. With such wonderful voices to teach and encourage me, I feel I have made an excellent choice in coming here to PulseWire. I have much to learn, and much to do, so I pray you bear with me as I navigate around and meet many of you. Any and all advice is welcomed! Thank you for letting me be part of this incredible community!

Enjoy the learning!

Hi.
I appreciate your humble expression of yourself. I often also feel intimidated by the knowledge of others, but I comfort myself by acknowledging that we all are aware of something special. I am not a mother, and believe me, your experiences in that world would probably blow my mind! My advice is to explore the website, read what others share, and just feel free to express who you are!
I look forward to hearing more from your unique knowledge!

I suppose we all find our day

I suppose we all find our day to day lives to be not so interesting to others. We're so used to ourselves and our own reality, that we may not realize that we do have something real to offer to others. Your comment has made me realize this, and I thank you. I may take my role in life for granted, but I can assure you that will not happen again, not with all the insights I have been gathering here! Thank you again!

Great user name!

Dear LadyLurks alot (what a great user name!)
Welcome to the Pulsewire community!
I understand how you may feel a little intimidated by the trials and accomplishments of many of the remarkable women in this community, but your heart for your children and desire to make this world a better place for them puts you in their midst.
There is no greater role in life than that of mother. And when we take that role of mother out into the world and work towards creating a better future for all children as well as our own we begin something wonderful. (That's how I got started here and now I am a VOF Correspondent)
So embrace your role! and keep on posting.
Regards
Tina (another stay at home mum!)
