Day 42: Contact Other Cindy Moores

Image

Today’s first was interesting! I came up with the idea a few days ago to contact other women named Cindy Moore.  My name is fairly common. With the ability to search the internet via google and the search feature on Facebook, I knew I wouldn’t have any difficulties locating other Cindys. 

I found dozens of ladies with my name. And while we all have the same name as a bond between us, it was the diversity among us that fascinated me. I found Cindy Moores all across the US and in Canada. There were several realtors, a pastor, an actress, artists, entertainers, insurance agents, teachers, psychologists and homemakers. One called herself, simply, a “dreamer and lover of life”.  I thought we’d all be about the same age, since my first name’s popularity peaked in the 50’s and 60’s, but I discovered a variety of ages too.

What fun it was to browse through their webpages or Facebook profiles and learn a tiny bit about them. Not everyone had a published email address. However, I found at least a dozen to contact via email or Facebook messaging. I’ve heard back already from a few. Perhaps we will create a group page for Cindy Moores so we can encourage each other in our journeys, one Cindy Moore to another.

Looking at the faces of all these lovely women, and reading their stories, I realized that none of us are just our names. Those are labels that identify us easily. But we are so much more than a name. We are shining souls. We have hopes and dreams that inspire us, fears and hurts we’ve overcome, and gifts to offer to the world. Call out our names and we will answer. Call to our hearts, and we will share with you all that we have to give.

  1. Hi Cindy Moore. What a creative fun idea. Let’s see if I can start this fun journey for you with a little about me. 47 grandmother of 2, mother of 4. SOUTHERN BELLE for real!! Vice President
    for a medical compliance firm. I am BKA – a below the knee amputee. I didn’t have insurance when I lost my leg so I taught myself to walk again in my office back in 2007. This past year, I got the prosthetic leg I’d been dreaming about for a long time – – today I can run again! My limb loss taught me much about life…it’s precious! So for the rest of my journey, I choose to be an empathetic doer not such a sympathetic ‘on-looker’.
    My latest and greatest news…the love of my life found me again on facebook and I got that diamond for my birthday! =) Dreams do come true!

    1. Cindy thank you so much for sharing! You are a beautiful shining soul for sure. What spirit and perseverance! It is no mistake that our paths have crossed. I am excited to share the journey with you!
