Last week was rather emotional for me. It was the last Mothers of Preschoolers meeting of the school year and the last one for me with this particular group. I joined MOPS when Ella was just about nine months old. It was kinda scary to enter the church's family center filled with moms. I only knew one other person, my friend Joanne. But, over the past six years, I've relished the fellowship, the break from kids and the ability to drink a hot cup of coffee that MOPS provides. I've also enjoyed using my gifts to help our group with publicity and our newsletter for the past four years. As our last meeting approached, I was filled with a sadness. Obviously, I'll miss my friends, but, I might also just miss MOPS. While I still have another three years of "eligibility" in MOPS, I don't know if my schedule will allow me to participate wherever it is that we find ourselves for law school. Of course, my sadness might be all for nothing. Perhaps I will be able to participate...I really hope that I will. So, now I've just got to wait and see.
If you're pregnant or a mom of a young child (up through Kindergarten), MOPS is a great organization to be a part of. You can find out more at their website or find a group near you. If my schedule allows it, I will certainly be looking for a new group wherever it is that we end up.
