Today is Blog Action Day 2012. The topic? The Power of We.
- The Power of We: banding together through positivity, prayer, or whathaveyou to offer support, even over many miles. Maybe we can’t physically be there, or even afford to send flowers or gifts, but a quick email or a link to a funny video to help our loved ones through the difficult time can really mean a lot.
- The Power of We: welcoming help & support from people we trust to take care of my children. It does take a village. Maybe I might do things differently, but giving our children the opportunity to interact with someone other than Momma for several hours/week will offer them a fresh perspective on daily life. The world doesn’t always revolve around them.
- The Power of We: recruiting the community through social media & beyond to send meals, breast-milk, donations, and other levels of support to my sister & her husband as they dealt with the tragic suffering & death of my niece. I don’t believe they would’ve survived such a tragedy without The Power of We. Not only did the community band together to support my sister & brother-in-law when they lost my niece, but that same community celebrated the birth of my healthy nephew. Proving The Power of We doesn’t always have to revolve around tragedy; that power goes much deeper.
