A sense of belonging, you know... that feeling you get when you're spending time with your best friend or you visit a place where you can be yourself and the surroundings mirror your thoughts and interests. Sigh, everyone needs that in their lives, even only just for a fleeting moment - just enough to carry us through our busy routines until we can feel it again.

I wanted to write today about how grateful I am to have had many of these moments in my life. Some of mine have included; laughter with my beautiful daughters whom I absolutely adore, dear friends, a coffee shop full of aroma and Paris Chic accessories, spending time with a senior citizen with stories of a time gone by... just to name a few.

I joined a lovely on-line group this weekend, it's the Etsy Cottage Style Community. This is another place where I get that sense of belonging. They are a wonderful group of very talented ladies who provide friendship, support, encouragement and we all have very similar interests in what we like to create.

Where do you get your sense of belonging from? Does it come from family, friends, places, things you do? I'd love to hear them!

I managed to get some creating done this weekend, now I need to photograph them. I've asked my Victoria to do this as she's our prize photographer in our family. She's only 11. I'm amazed at the shots she captures when we're out and about on walks or drives in the country. Anyway, she says she'd be happy to take the pictures for me, so I'm excited to see what she comes up with. I will post as soon as they're done.

I wish you lots of belonging and happy moments today and always!

I'm glad you found a nice group. I get my sense of belonging with my theatre friends and being at the theatre : )

It does feel good to have people to share with. Laugh, play, just have a good time. I love it also...
