What I love about Sundays:
The meaningful conversations that can happen when we unplug from the weekday routine.
Today, Mama wanted to talk about her cancer and God wanted to encourage my heart through the words and bonding that occurred.
This the the 2-year Anniversary Month of my coming back home to a world I grew up in and having heard all my life that “you can never go back home”, I have to say that (if God leads), I wholeheartedly DISAGREE!
Although, I didn’t roam too far (Atlanta), I find that the culture and speed of life here in Savannah is where my heart truly has always resided.
In our ‘Friendly City’, folks still take time to ‘shoot the breeze’ and take time for the simple treasures. Everywhere I go, (Grocery store, Church, my neighborhood), people are pooling resources to send to the many folks affected by Hurricane Harvey.
In my neighborhood, folks stop and chat and watch out for one another. It’s a treat to welcome new neighbors and help them get to know other neighbors.
My church has truly become Family and the ladies in my Connect Group have become an amazing support system for me.
I’m close to my brother and sister-in-law and get to enjoy being a part of the lives of two very special nieces! ❤️
My lifelong (since 2nd grade) friend helped me to bridge the years and feel as though I’d never left.
I’ve been blessed with 3 dear women who are CareGiver’s for my mom and they have learned a lot about me and still love me! 😊
And in my work, I am part of a Real Estate Team that I feel a sense of belonging, more like family and ‘Cheers’ and not so much like we are competing against one another.
It’s a joy to be a part of a community where folks open doors, offer umbrellas and say ‘Please and Thank You’ routinely.
The closest thing to heaven that I’ve experienced so far, is coming home! Thank YOU, Lord!
And can someone please pass the Grits! 😊❤️
