Very often when my family and I are out and about, we run into women I know but my family doesn’t.
Next from my kids comes the questions, “Who is that? How do you know her?”
Last week this happened again. I chatted with the woman for a few minutes and shortly after we parted, the questions came.
This time, however, before I answered, my oldest said, “Nevermind. MOPS, right?”
I had to laugh. Because she was right. Nine times out of ten I know the person because of MOPS.
MOPS is short for Mothers of Preschoolers. Not familiar with MOPS? Go here to find out more.
Seriously, if you are a mom of a preschooler (a child that hasn’t started kindergarten yet), and you’re feeling lonely, find a MOPS group. It’s funny how as a new mom especially, you are with that little person 24 hours a day, but you can feel painfully lonely.
The link above takes you to the MOPS home page and then click on “find a group” near the bottom of the page to search for a group near you. You’ll meet lots of other moms in the same season of life as you.
And it may take one meeting or ten. But I promise you, you will make lifelong friendships that will enrich your life and leave you lonely no more!
