Connection is essential for us as humans, and particularly for us as mothers. We need the support of a community, especially when we are most challenged: early weeks with a new baby, icy days cooped up with frustrated toddlers, experiences of grief and loss. Isolation at times like these can cut us to the bone.
As La Leche League Leaders, we make connections with each Series Meeting and every helping call. And just like any mother at a meeting, we need connections of our own to sustain us. This past month, new Leaders, eager to forge and strengthen these connections, have jumped into our Facebook group before the ink has dried on their Statements of Commitment, and we've felt a blooming sense of excitement about the upcoming Leader Retreat and Area Conference.
What a joy to see that the more we share, the stronger we grow.
