Women wear a lot of hats. We rock the work hat, mom hat, wife hat, friend hat, daughter hat, chef hat, maid’s cap, nurses hat, sister hat- well, the list just keeps on going. I hope when you come to Millinery, you feel like you walked into a really fun hat shop where there is something for every woman. And especially something that reminds you there is always hope to juggle all the hats! In my world, I wear a lot of hats, but my favorite is a sparkly crown that reminds me I am the daughter of the King. In fact, all the hats I wear come out of the same hatbox, which is my relationship with Jesus. It gives meaning and purpose to all the roles I play.
I love women and all the ways we are both strong and fragile. How we cling to our loved ones fiercely and struggle to keep an open palm. I love that we can multi-task, even though it can be exhausting. I love how we worship with abandon, share with vulnerability and love to the depths of our core. I also adore the way we look for beauty all around us and in us, and how we can find the joy in the mundane. So welcome to my metaphorical hat shop. Let me know what you think, and how you are learning to wear your hats and where they keep falling off. Let’s encourage each other!
I often refer to my “clients” or my job in my blog. Branches Counseling Center is where I have the honor to work. We are a Christian counseling center in Middle Tennessee. I love, love my job. I have not always been a working mama, and it is a juggling act to be sure. Still, I love it.
(As a matter of moral and ethical boundaries, I never refer to any clients by name or even to specific situations. All references are used in a general sense, as my clients’ confidentiality is of utmost importance to me.)
