One response to “Mamas Are Amazing & I Love My Kids

  1. Hi Joy, I said it all on the parent dish site, but I want to say it again here . . . .

    Joy – You totally deserve this recognition and I’m so honored to know
    you. Jenn Kempeier’s introduction earlier this year was so loving and
    open. I had no idea of the type of road I was walking with you. And
    I believe it will only widen as all of the loving strength of women
    support each other.

    You are so strong, beautiful, passionate, giving, supportive and
    loving. You’re also now a magazine publisher! The Mamazina Magazine ( that just came out is so much fun – I don’t know if others know about that yet, but it’s filled with beautiful
    articles by women.

    You are an inspiration to me and already I’ve learned so much from
    you and our talks, your compassion and love.

    . . . and the beat goes on! And as you say, “Moms Rock!”
