-the condition of sharing or having certain attitudes and interests in common- The Dictionary
-Having a place that one belongs to and somewhere one can feel included- My personal interpretation
This forum means a lot of different things to a lot of different people.
And we all have our reasons for logging on each day.
But no matter those reasons. One thing I hope everyone can agree on is that this is a community, of different individuals from different countries, walks of life, ages, believes, ideas and identities, but above all a place that is always welcoming to all
And we have everything you could possibly ask for
- We have compassionate members
- We have storytellers
- We have those that make us laugh
- Those that listen
- Some that sing (check out the lonely thread )
- We have the supporters
- The carers
- And let's not forget the wise
- We have members with all of life's experiences
- And members that are just starting out
- And we have friends
- And those we are still getting to know
So I only have one task from everyone today.
Choose two people each, someone that means a lot to you helped you through a difficult time, made you laugh, feel important or just listened and leave them a hug or a message if you prefer.
And if you want a hug or a nice message and you have not got one yet. Just say hey and I'm sure one will be along soon enough
Secondly, send a hug to someone that maybe you haven't directly spoken to before but seen around. Could be a message instead up to you. Let them know they have been seen.
And I know some people are shy so I am giving a few ideas you can use for messages.
- I love your posts around the forum
- Thank you for always making me laugh
- (insert name) I hope you are having a beautiful day today
- You always make me smile
- Or maybe just a how are you.
I hope that's not a stupid idea.
And one question for everyone.
You can make a dessert choosing only five ingredients what would those ingredients be.
To demonstrate I will go first
@Citizen Insane , thank you for always making me laugh
@Lux , I am obsessed with your stories, I still remember Gary, I often retell them to my sisters or anyone else who will listen.
Five ingredients for my ultimate dessert.
- Bubblegum ice cream
- With licorice all sorts
And thank you again for allowing me this opportunity to open the Cafe once again.
