I believe that my life is enriched by association with individuals and with groups of people who help to support each other through all of life's challenges. On Saturday, I got together for coffee with two teaching friends and we spent 3 hours catching up on news of each other's families, planning music lessons for special needs children and just talking.
On Sunday, I visited with my church community and felt a feeling of peace and renewal as I sang the hymns and listened to a sermon on faith. I believe that the strength is in each of us to create the life that we want. Sunday evening, Monsieur and I had dinner with my brother and sister-in-law at a special seafood restaurant. I do not often spend my birthday dinner with my brother so it was a special treat.
We all have our challenges and issues in life. When we share them with others, we gain many different perspectives. I feel grateful for all of those people with whom I am connected and who make each day of my life a little richer.
