Day 17: Today, I am giving thanks for my local MOPS group.
For those that don’t know, MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers. It’s for pregnant moms to be and moms with children ages 0 – kindergarten.
When we moved down here, my pediatrician invited me to our local MOPS group. I shrugged it off time and time again. I was too busy – after all, I had 4 kids, and we had just moved to this crazy little town from a much larger city. I was certain I would never have anything in common with any of these people, and I would just be out of place.
After numerous invites from the pediatrician, I finally gave it. And I am SO thankful that I did! What an AWESOME group of moms! I have made more friends than I can count, and every month, I look forward to one night off from mommyhood. I get a hot meal AND a night of fun with a room full of moms going through the same things I am. I have heard amazing Bible lessons, health tips, been able to serve people in my community, and so much more.
I am so very thankful for my local MOPS groups and all the mommies that are a part of it. Thanks, ladies, for making the 3rd Thursday of every month my favorite night of the month!
