It’s taken me awhile and still I buck the system at times, but community matters. Making genuine connections with other people matters. We were never meant to go on this journey of life alone.
By yourself you’re unprotected. With a friend you can face the worst. Can you round up a third? A three-stranded rope isn’t easily snapped. Ecclesiastes 4:12 (the Message)
I used to be a loner. I’m still an introvert at the core. I prefer to do things on my own. I’m okay being alone.

I love Christmas! And what better time to do a little Christmas celebrating than in the middle of summer???? So Merry Christmas in July 2017!
I love all things Christmas! About now is when I start thinking about Christmas and gifts I want to buy. It’s not too early to start shopping, is it?
I also love to read those posts that people write about their favorite things or things they are loving lately. I don’t do them much but I did decide to take some time to share some of my favorite things with you for Christmas in July 2017. Maybe this will become an annual tradition. Who knows?? I did do a post similar to this last year but then moved most of the content to my Favorite Things page.
Christmas, Favorite Things, summer
Mother’s Day had me thinking about the things I have learned from my mom over the years.
To give you a brief history lesson: My birthday is 4 days after my mom’s. She had just turned 21 when she had me. She and my dad had only been married about 6 months. I was their first child. Two years later my brother came along and that would be our family until our parents divorced about 20 years later.
family, Mother's Day
