Creating Support Systems

Flowers Budding

I am a rock. . .I am an island. . .

Lyrics from a Simon and Garfunkle song - though not very realistic.  More like the quote "no man is an island" by John Donne

We all need support - friends, peers, family . . .whatever form they take - they are a support system.

When i had my first baby - way back in 2000. . .I used a local Nursing Mom's group to support my breastfeeding efforts . . . their support went a long way towards my success and my confidence.

When John had his stroke, I turned to family, friends and virtual friends for support . . . kind words, prayers and help with my kids.

When I scrapbook and craft - there are a host of websites and crafty people out there that I rely on to fuel my creative juices.

Right now I am in the midst of a career/life change - attempting to take my blog and social media skills to the next level.  My support system in this journey is all of you - locally, my PSMMs and GLO crowds - and by virtue of the internet - virtual friends from around the globe.

What are your support systems?

catch you soon -
