I want this giveaway. That’s all I will say. I am going to have the store send this bag directly to the winner because if it falls into my hands they won’t be able to pry it out of them.
Some of you may be thinking why in the world is she giving away a purse. So here is the reasoning behind my Kate Spade giveaway choice…Passionate moms tend to spend every dime and all their time on their kids. Can you relate? This, then, puts us in the awkward position of never having anything to wear that makes us feel up-to-date. My simple solution is to create a mirage to disguise my outmoded momminess (usually old jeans and a plain shirt) with a great bag. SO give me some Kate and I am lookin’ good! Well, OK so maybe I am not looking good but my bag is and that makes me feel like I am looking good! Whatever it takes to create the illusion!
Passion is not an illusion for any mom. Our passion for our children is rock solid. In fact, Joel Miller, from Thomas Nelson chose Passionate Mom for the title of the book (smart man) because we moms are such passionate creatures. I learned this very early in my parenting…
Excerpt from The Passionate Mom Chapter 3:
Passion will make you a bold and courageous mom for your children. (click to tweet) You must be so passionate about your child that it moves you to tears and drives you to action. Passion may be the third brick in your wall, but it is a foundational one, and all the other bricks rest upon it. Passion is a strong and compelling emotion that will motivate you to dare to parent in today’s world. (click to tweet)
Passion is powerful, and moms by nature are passionate about their children. I will never forget the first time I felt invaded by a passion from some place deep within that left the rational side of me questioning who I had become. My first child, Megan, was only four months old, so my hormones were still on the skittish side. We were taking our first trip to visit family, just she and I. I had gracefully navigated airport security with all the baby paraphernalia and without a peep from my well-behaved newborn. I was feeling so competent, and I settled rather smugly into my seat with little precious, thinking, I can do this; what is the big deal?
We taxied to the runway. The engines began to roar. My seat began to shake. Then the plane lurched forward and began to race down the runway with increasing speed. My heart lurched right with it and took off before the plane did. I was startled and confused. I felt as if the revving engine had somehow connected to my heart. The noise and speed escalated, and so did the sound and pace of my heart beating. My mind was not my own, and every nerve I had was screaming, YOU CANNOT PROTECT YOUR BABY ON THIS PLANE–GET OFF NOW!
Just when you think you have it together as a mom, you realize you don’t. (click to tweet) Well, the alien that invaded has never left me. Thankfully, my hormones have calmed down a bit, but that passion to protect, fight for, nurture, and love my children is always there. For better or worse. And when my children are in trouble, my passion pours out in tears.
