A walk in the neighborhood

Some days it is great to take a walk in the neighborhood and see what those around are talking about. It is interesting how little themes appear in what people are discussing.

Like JD being right where he is supposed to be while questioning it all the time, while Josh is going with the flow and The Hosh is enjoying life.

Around them, while I’m content to comment on other’s thoughts rather than put to much effort into my own, others are thinking and writing on a whole different level and depensing wisdom that must come from being a mother. From Sue’s “I’m talking about accepting ourselves at the very core of who we are” to Sarah’s “taking a deep breath & getting myself in the forgiveness mindset, rather than slipping into turtle mode & pulling into my protective shell” it seems they know what is happing in everyones life before it actually does. How they read other’s mail before it is written and have already posted about it always amazes me.

So, what is the point? None of us needs to be brilliant, just ourselves and none of us is alone. Like Lacey searching for her voice while speaking with such clarity, or like me just taking a walk in the neighborhood, we all benefit from the community we are walking in.
