But I think “tribes” like that fall into place when you need them…that dealing with adversity only strengthens your resolve, making you and your decisions even more right for your own family.]]>
The older I get, the more tempted I am to move away from our families and old friendships to be closer to people more like us. I completely get it. This nuclear family thing is not all it’s cracked up to be…]]>
i have lots of christian friends & lots of crunchy friends - i am praying for the day when those two circles in my life meet to form a perfect little community. [thank you all for being part of that community for me now. i have learned volumes from you.]
