About El Momma

About El Momma

The El is the beginning of my last name and it also means "The." I am "the Momma" but only to my children and my family. To your family, you are "the momma," you are "El Momma." You are the one. You are the only. You are El Momma to your little ones. So, this is for you. The ones who write me sweet little notes just to say you appreciate the honesty, the imperfect posts, the happy posts, the sad ones and the ones written to reach out to you and tell you that I'm with you and although my momma experiences are not the same as yours, they connect with you and yours.

I share because we are not alone. I now have a common bond of loss with so many. Some of my dear friends, who only began to share of their loss after we lost Mary-Linda. Friends who have thanked me for sharing and told of the times it helped them through a tough day. Or, that they were reminded to give thanks or that it’s okay to be sad or that their loved one is worth remembering and talking about.

About me. I was born and raised in Texas. Lived here until graduating from college when I followed my heart and my dreams to California. Part of my heart will always be there. Luckily, my Texas husband was also there. We met, fell in love and made our way back to Texas where we married and now have 5 earthside children (the Els) and a baby daughter in heaven. I write about what I feel. What I know and what I wish I knew.

Thank you for the encouragement. As I often say, encouraging others in their gifts can be one of the most empowering actions we can do for another.

 -From one El Momma to another
love, Rebekah
