The Joy Diet: Connections

What a well needed topic for me to write about.  Given that we are going into Thanksgiving week, I am thankful for the connections that I do have.  I have a wonderful husband who I feel extremely connected to and 3 beautiful children who I know I'm connected to.  I have a wonderful loving husband who loves me for who I am and all my faults that go along with me.  My 3 beautiful children are only 20 1/2 months and 10 months (twins), but I can feel the connection when they look at me and when I hold them.  I can only hope that this connection continues as they grow.

As a stay at home mom (which I love and am so thankful to be able to do), I sometimes feel disconnected with other adults.  I belong to a twin group, but for some reason, every time I think there is a connection, it ends up that I am wrong.  At this point in my life, I haven't been able to find many connections with other adults.  I need to look at myself and try to figure out what I may be doing to have a disconnect in my life.  I'd like to find a connection with other moms and with others in the creative community.

So as I finish writing about connections, I give thanks for the connections that I have and I plan to work on finding connections with others

I am thankful for the topics that have been brought up on wishcasting wednesday and also for the topics from The Joy Diet.



  1. I hope that you are able to find the connections that you are looking for! I can relate, being a stay-at-home mom for the last 10 years! :) Many blessings coming your way...

  2. I hope you find the connections you are looking for. Sounds like you have a good headstart. I hope you had a great Thanksgiving with your family.

    Your kids are lucky to have a Stay-at-home Mom. They will thank you someday.
