Passing On the SMAG
Today I’m sharing educator/blogger and friend – Norah Colvin’s post on friendship. Recently, Norah wrote a beautiful post on friendships we make within our writing community. I was honored to be mentioned in her post, but most of all I wanted to share her post here and invite my readers to help yourselves to this wonderful badge that Norah has created – SMAG which stands for Society of Mutual Admiration and Gratitude. Please read Norah’s post below and join in our SMAG community. All that is required to join is friendship!
That’s What Friends are For
At this time of year, minds and hearts turn to friends and family, and contemplations of what we can do to make the world a better place. When we think of global events, we may feel overwhelmed, wondering what possible effect our actions could have. But when we focus on our own circle, any positive difference we make can effect changes of which we may never be aware. That’s the ripple effect, and that’s what friends are for.
I belong to a very supportive online community whose encouragement helps to keep me going.
With my focus on education, particularly early childhood education, and their work mostly targeting adult audiences, I struggle to find ways of supporting them and their creative pursuits during the year, other than the usual shares on Twitter and Facebook.
However, come Christmas time, what’s to stop me doing a little more?
