I Want To Challenge All Group Members...

I want to challenge all of you to reach out to someone. Make an effort to not only befriend someone, but keep in contact with them. Share your stories with them. I know, I know, that's what we're here for, right? But there's quite a large difference between just throwing your story out there for everyone and anyone to read, and making a real connection with someone. I hope at least some of you will take this to heart, and make the effort. You may change someone's life, or have yours changed for the better!!!

Actually that's why I'm so selective about who I add to my circle so I can communicate with everyone regularly. <br />

You are right though, spending time with someone can really make a difference in their lives. Its happened to me and I am truly grateful.

Absolutely! I completely agree with this. Today I went to lunch with a lady I had never met before (we were accompanied by my mom--she had met her in town and wanted my sister and I to meet her). I had a great time getting to know this lady over lunch. We discussed her having children, her divorce over 14 years ago, her raising the kids on her own, her never having re-married, my own current separation from my husband, real-estate, lawyers...it was great! I love people's stories--the good AND the bad. We are all human having a human experience. :)
