After blogging, yesterday, about my life as a juggler, it hit me (a thought hit me, not a ball) that there are a number of reasons why I am able to stay grounded more often than not.
Besides my faithful cheerleader team, ie., my husband, my family and my friends, I have the support and encouragement of two different groups. One is my Home Fellowship Community (hereafter referred to as HFC), comprised of almost 20 “mature” members of our church. We not only discuss our pastor’s sermons, we frequently pray for one another and lend a helping hand to one another. In recent years we’ve come to know each other very well.
The other group is my book club. We call ourselves The Passionate Readers. And for a good reason. We are voracious readers and lovers of words. Our lively discussions and differences of opinion serve to broaden my world view. We are a motly crew and have forged a strong friendship bond.
Without this firm foundation, given my personality type, I’d be blowing in the wind—more often than not!
