‘Wanted: ‘That’ mom friend. My lonely hands are out-stretched, just waiting for you to take them.’: Mom urges ‘I hope we can soon stop the looking, together’

“The one who I can call at any hour of the night, because both our families are wide awake anyhow. That friend who sends memes of familiar frustrations, and follows up with ‘We got this,’ and ‘I’m always here.’ The friend who overcasts the heavy, uneducated opinions of others with her kindness.”

‘Erin, I love you.’ After 18 years of occassional likes, random comments, I awoke to a note on my table.’: Woman marries ‘stranger’ she met on the internet, ‘I can live the rest of my life with him’

“For years, I watched his life move forward on my computer screen. He didn’t know it, but the moments he took to talk to me were pulling me through some of my darkest days. Did this stranger know how much I adored him? That tiny note was the very first time I saw his handwriting, and realized I loved him.”

‘Ladies, find your person. Not the cutest diaper bag. Not the sleekest car or the fanciest preschool.’: Woman stresses importance of having a best friend, ‘Motherhood isn’t meant to traverse alone’

“Find the person that will come hold your baby when all you need is a shower. Find the person who your teenager can call when they have a problem they’re not yet ready to discuss with you. Find the person who is ready to drop everything for queso and margaritas after a hard day, no questions asked.”
