Prompt: Community. Where have you discovered community, online or otherwise, in 2010? What community would you like to join, create or more deeply connect with in 2011?
I love the word community. I love being involved.
This is likely why after being in a sorority in college I sought out an organization like Junior League to become involved in. Its a group of like minded women who want to give back in the communities in which they reside.
Transferring leagues when I moved allowed me to get involved and to see the needs of the area and help make an impact. In October I helped build a playground at a local YMCA and in January we will be packing meals for Haiti. Outside of the league but within my community I will help a local fire department with their "Shop with a fireman" program this Thursday. Giving back locally and globally warms the heart.
And you can't beat karma repair.
I have also been overwhelmed this year with the amazing men and women who have supported me through this blog. I wrote the blog to get the thoughts racing through my head out. I wrote to take stress away. I didn't know I would find so much support from a group of people I have never met.
So I tip my hat, raise a glass and any other euphemism to those that have been here for a while:
Everyday Adventures of Me in the City
I'm Gonna Break Your Heart
To the ladies that recently found my blog and have commented, echoed my feelings and shared their stories. I appreciate it more than you know. I love reading your adventures, thoughts, celebrating your joy and commiserating in your sorrow. I look forward to what lies ahead.
The Immature Matron
This Broken Heart Has Hope
To Be Determined
To my 3 male readers; I appreciate the male point of view.
To the lurkers who read but don't comment thank you for coming back but don't be shy.
To community. To Support. To 2011.
