Thankful Thursday :: Communities

DSC 0640 Thankful Thursday :: Communities

This Thankful Thursday is about Communities. 

I’m so thankful to be part of so many. I am a talker and will strike up conversations with strangers, so connecting with people is easy for me. 

I’m thankful for my street community. I’m thankful for our seventy year old neighbour who will pop in and check that everything is ok from time to time, usually when I am still in my pjs… I’m thankful for the waves as we go by in the car. The chats as we walk by. In our street there is an unsaid understanding that everyone looks out for each other and their property. An email tree helps facilitate this and through it we can share what is going on in our lives, which I think is a big part of contributing to the feeling like you belong. 

I’m thankful for school communities. A school community is one of those situations where it really is up to you how much you want to be involved or not involved.  In the past I have been more involved at my kid’s school by being on committees and just being there at school for different events. Over the past year or so this has really dwindled and I am noticing that it’s taking more effort to stay in touch with the staff and that is something I need to work on.

I’m thankful for my online community. Some people may ‘poo-poo’ this notion and say it’s not real, but for me it’s a big part of my week. Through blogging I’ve met and connected with so many wonderful people. Some have been a huge encouragement and we keep in touch through comments and emails. There are so many people who I’d love to have a cuppa with and meet in person and I know that some I will never ‘see in the flesh’ but that doesn’t really change how much enjoyment I get out of sharing and connecting. 

I’m thankful for my church community. I’m thankful for the chats and people keeping me accountable. I’m thankful for the encouragement I get from people who know how much I need it. I’m thankful for the leadership of older women in my church. I’m thankful for a God who calls all these people together to make this community. 

Being part of a community is mostly up to you. You may not be a talker like me. You may not be an oversharer like me either and it is up to you to decide how you can contribute to your community. It’s not about others and what they do. 

What community do you feel most at home in? 

What are you thankful for today?

Little Fish in Yallingup is one of those places you just know you will return to. 

Peaceful and picturesque don’t even begin to describe just how lovely it is. 

The menu was one that you could glance through and had it enough to give everyone a choice to suit their tastes, but not too much to overwhelm. The food was delicious and obviously a lot of effort is put into sourcing the freshest of produce. If you are at Little Fish for breakfast, make sure you give their hash browns a try!
