Every time I think I cannot go one step more, feel like the struggle is too much to bear, think I might give up and crawl into a corner and pout and hide, this awesome community comes through for me.

We’ve just had a great time in the Happy Hospitality room, where I’m privileged to facilitate the call. We laughed, chatted and I felt the warmth of fellowship and friendship smoothing the cares of the day away.

But wait, there’s more. Earlier today, in the ACB Community Facebook group, I posted a message for help with learning the newest ins and outs of Facebook because I felt like I was sinking in quicksand. Immediately someone in the community reached out to me with an offer to assist.

I must say, when I first heard of the community, I was skeptical. I’d been in many groups before, and the end result for me was always the same: I just never fit in. Though I’ve hit a few bumps in the road along my way here and found out there are some things I’m better at than others, and a few things which I should avoid, overall this has been the best experience of my life as far as experiencing such things as this, and all I can say is thank you for allowing me to be a part of it all.

I am grateful for each of you, and if there’s ever something I can do for you, please don’t hesitate to ask. “Thanks” doesn’t seem like quite enough, but it and my love are what I have to give, and the best part of it all is, in this community, that’s enough.

Thanks for reading. May harmony find you and blessed be.
