Holley, I will certainly be following along. I whole-heartedly agree with your point that we each have a pen. We need to be part of the process. I'm looking forward to your thoughts!
Holley, your post resonates with me so strongly. When I read about today's topic and decided to put my thoughts in writing to link-up, some of the same thoughts you shared were bouncing around in my brain. You articulated this so well. My favorite part is the hope you shared, "Because God is a dreamer. And even if we stop dreaming for ourselves, He never stops dreaming for us..." Thank you! Paula

Thank you for sharing this idea! I'm a huge fan of daily gratitudes (I have a circle of girlfriends that email each other every day to share what we're thankful for.) This is such an easily accessible project that is fun for families to put together and then to share throughout the month.

Stephanie, thank you for touching on a topic that so many of us can relate to. I feel so connected to this topic. I have often felt the loneliness of being new, unnoticed or different. Sometimes, finding myself there unintentionally by neglecting my relationships with my girlfriends as I busily run about my life - working, focusing on MY things, worrying MY worries, wondering where everyone else went. Other times, the friends in my circle have had changes in their lives that morphed our relationships. I wish there was an easy, quick answer to solve this for us. The truth is that nurturing, full relationships take time to build. I think we need to start small. I like to think of building friendships like gardening. Sowing seeds of friendship whenever & where ever we can knowing that not all will take hold and not all will grow in the ways we expect. I know that paying attention and focusing on my new friendships is required to have them flourish. These relationships also require time to go along with the effort. I have come to realize that I can look to multiple friends to serve different needs in my life. As much as I would love 1 or 2 people who can be all things in friendship for me, I am learning to value my new and budding friendships for what they offer me and the person I'm spending time with. This is a great topic and I appreciate the dialog it has sparked. I have lots to consider this afternoon. Blessings! Paula
