So very much has been going on around here. I find it hard to keep up and even harder coming here and writing it all down! There have been struggles and challenges and blessings and growth. Trips to the hospital, a funeral, family gatherings, birthdays…the ins and outs of a full life. And through it all I feel blessed. There are a lot of things that I have been thinking about that I will have to keep close to my heart for now. I don’t have time or energy, but here are a few tidbits for you…

As it came time to register for Squam Art Workshops (which I did!), Kelli contacted me about her story, which I was a part of and had totally forgotten about. It is a Squam story about never quite making it to Squam and how the feelings of Squam reached her anyway. It is a testament to the power of women and the good we can do for each other.  (And a testament about how awesome Elizabeth, director of SAW, is.) I like learning how she was taken care of by strangers reaching out. It is a good story, read it here.

Never ending girliness this week;)

Speaking of women and nurturing, my friend Vanessa asked me to participate in her series, Making Friends as a Grown Woman. It is an interesting topic and one I enjoyed pondering. Read some of my thoughts about my experience with friendships in social media and face-to-face friendships here.
