Connection…what does it mean to you?

Is it maintaining a casual relationship with the people close to you geographically and close only to those willing to connect with you or do you go out of your way to make connection happen, making it a priority because you thrive on building relationships with others?

People come to relationships in various ways and for various reasons.

I have been reflecting this week on connections. I think when we lose someone close to us, we tend to do that….reflect. And even though I knew this in my head, my heart really grabbed it this week:

The most important thing that we can ever do is cultivate and maintain connections with other people because people are more important than anything else that we could hope to attain.

Some of us are fortunate to have many connected people in our lives and we really know who those people are when a crisis happens. I really know who those people are in my life after this past week of losing my grandmother….they are the ones that love you through everything, even when you can hardly hold your head up, they are there still loving you.  True connections…

There are many people that come here, hardly able to lift their head, struggling to get through each day of the challenge of parenting a child with specific needs.

I hope that you find that connection, that true connection, here….and that you will feel safe, valued, honored and supported.

The challenge really can’t be avoided and for some it is a daily occurrence…this is the reality that some face each day.  But you don’t have to go through it alone, you can know that what you are seeking can be found here with others on the same road that understand what you are facing each day. And even though the challenge is there, that isn’t the end of the story… you can gain the tools needed to face it with strength and with love.

All it takes is reaching out your hand and connecting….and know this, my hand is reaching out to you.  Will you take it?

“Strange is our situation here upon earth. Each of us comes for a short visit, not knowing why, yet sometimes seeming to a divine purpose. From the standpoint of daily life, however, there is one thing we do know: That we are here for the sake of others…for the countless unknown souls with whose fate we are connected by a bond of sympathy. Many times a day, I realize how much my outer and inner life is built upon the labors of people, both living and dead, and how earnestly I must exert myself in order to give in return as much as I have received.”

~ Albert Einstein
