That there our many Mom's with the same problems as another Moms and we can all help each other. We all just need to slow down, REALLY READ the post and be supportive of the other Mothers feelings at all times, even when we feel mad, upset, hurt, or betrayed.

 This is my 6th year with CM and one thing I learn was life is not a contest and you dont have to compete to have fun and gain support. I have gain many sisters and lost many as well. I always hurt when I lost a sister due to a disagreement and then had to realize that if we were truely a family we would still be a family.

I love my sisters and glad CM has brought us all together!

I joined in Feb of 2007 and I have gained more friends then losing friends, but like you said if truly family/friends an argument would NEVER break up a friendship. So the ones I lost were truly not meant to be IMHO!

It has taught me 2 things: that some moms can be total bitches (not in this group) and some are awesome friends!

 It has taught me to be more "open" and have fun.  I have made many friends here, can't wait to meet some, talk with some off cm and enjoy the games and parties we have virtually here..  I have lost only one special sister here thank goodness but I know as we all get older it will happen again... HUGS!!
