Here it the link to the site, along with the post...Theta Mom Rockstar Moms
VISIT THETA MOM, CHECK OUT THE POSTS, AND LINK UP. AWESOME!!!!
Rockstar Moms are everywhere.
My official definition of a Rockstar Mom: “Any mom who is doing the best job she can, making tons of sacrifices along the way amidst the curve balls that life continues to throw her way.”
The working mom who is juggling multiple jobs to ensure there is food on the table each night.
The single mom who is serving as “both” parents to her children.
The divorced mom who is making the best of the cards she’s been dealt.
The mom who keeps the ship at home afloat as her husband fights for this country overseas.
The special needs mom who continues to be an advocate for her children.
The mom who wants to find nothing more than a quality and affordable education for her children.
The mom who prays for her sick child every night, hoping that there will be a cure so she’ll have the opportunity to watch her baby grow.
The stay-at-home mom who continues to make sacrifices.
The allergy mom who will never give up hope.
The working mom who is seeking to find balance in her life.
The mom who went back to school to earn a degree to fulfill a lifelong dream.
The mom who seeks to find peace.
The mom who empathizes with another mom and lends her hand of support.
The mom who continues to dream big for herself and her children.
The mom who blogs and finds comfort in the online community of women who “get her.”
And to the mom who recently sent her child in with a Valentine’s Day card and piece of candy for my son at school who took a moment to write on his card, “Peanut Free” with a little smiley face – THANK YOU. You are a total Rockstar Mom.
Motherhood is not easy and I want to take a moment to remind you that YOU are doing an amazing job. We are in this thing together, deep in the trenches of motherhood.
So the next time you see another mom while standing in line at the grocery store or waiting in the pediatrician’s office, be sure to give her a smile of encouragement. That nod of acceptance may be just what she needs, a small reminder that she’s a Rockstar Mom – simply doing the best damn job that she can.

Okay, this isn't really talking ABOUT religion, but a random venting thought on my mind.
My son has been baptized and confirmed in our church. My dad never attended church except for my Christmas Pageants. My mom, on the other hand, made me go every Sunday. I had to literally be dead to stay home... but that is another topic.
Anyway, my son comes with me to church and doesn't mind it. I don't have to fight him to get dressed, I don't have to argue with him to get going. He is involved in some areas, such as sunday school, watching younger children, helping with the sound system, so it's not like this is going to kill him.
So many parents of the church have kids and they do not come to church. So many do, but the kids are drawing or playing on their ipods (why are those in church?)
I mentioned that my son comes to church and a council member replied with "but he doesn't sit IN church". Okay, what the hell is up with that? He is sitting out in the fellowship area, right outside the sanctuary, because I am out doing my duties. He doesn't want to sit alone in church, as neither did I when I was younger. We wanted to sit out by me. He listened to the service, was not on his phone and was not playing with his ipod. He was in the walls of our church and could hear the sermon. We have other members who don't sit IN church. Why is he different? At least he is there, on his own free will... no, I did not have to hog tie him and strap him to the roof of my car to get him there.
I just had to vent. My son does a lot with church and loves to be a part of it, and loves our pastor, so as long as he is willing to be there, I am happy.
Thank you for listening. The statement that was made just kinda hit me wrong and has been on my mind. Needed to vent. Thank you for listening.

(okay, so this is in the past, as we were married for 5 years, but I do remember what I noticed about him... but also what changed. We have been divorced many years, but hey, I'll play along this week...
1. His smile
2. His eyes
3. The way he made me feel
4. He cooked dinner
5. He did laundry
6. He loved me for who I was
7. He told me I looked sexy
8. He did work... occasionally
9. He was caring
10. He made me smile.
Okay, so after THAT learning experience... let me tell you 10 things I look for in guys nowadays, that make a difference...
1. Their smile - it says a lot
2. Their eyes - they can tell you so much
3. The way they treat me
4. Their sensitive side
5. If they are self-supported
6. If they have a steady (REAL) job
7. They do not have a criminal record or warrants for their arrest.
8. They do not have kids they don't support
9. They are caring and are not afraid to be honest
10. They accept myself and my son as a package deal.
So... there you have it...

Stop the world. I want to get off.
This week, I've worked, been off, done school work, took care of my son, and watched my mom go in the hospital, have emergency surgery, be in ICU, be released, then serve meals to the homeless, along with being shot down and cut down.
I can't do it anymore. I am exhausted. My body is tired. I want to quit, I want to give up. I'm frustrated and tired.
Hello? Good night.
