For Favorite Things Thursday I thought I’d share about connectivity. I’ve been thinking about connectivity a lot lately, and how it’s everywhere. These are a few examples that have made me smile.

Reader Comments:
I love comments on my blog posts. They show me that we are connected by similar interests, styles, or visions. I recently posted about the Spam earrings my husband brought back from a work trip. We laughed about what a quirky family we are: not many husbands would dare to bring back Spam earrings from a trip, and not many wives would love them! What turned out to be really cool was that Peggy, the woman who MADE these earrings, commented on the post! What a small world it is, that my teeny tiny blog post happened to be read by the artist who created my sweet gift. I love the full circleness (I made that word up) of getting to meet her (online). We really are connected, across the country and across the globe.

Hot Yoga:
I’ve been going to hot yoga for a few weeks now and have found it surprising to connect to my own body. I’m starting to think I might be able to hear what my body is saying to me, whether it’s “hey girl, push harder”, or “slow down, concentrate on your breathing, be gentle.” I hope it’s not my imagination. I like to think that my body can tell me what it needs. So far it’s saying “more hot yoga, please.”

Kids who are Close:
Three teenagers. After years of seeing too many fights between my children, I have begun to see signs that they actually LOVE each other. A few times recently I have heard them sticking up for each other, supporting each other, and being generally kind and loving toward each other. I am so relieved to see the tide turning! I always hoped that they would grow up to be each other’s biggest advocates, so to see signs that it might be happening, well I couldn’t be happier. It may only be 10% of the time, but hey, it’s a start. And I’m grateful for the glimpse.

A person’s a person. No matter how small.
This Dr. Seuss quote has been on my mind this week. Seeing people lift up a person who is feeling small makes me smile. If you are feeling small, please look around. There are people out there who believe that a person’s a person. No matter how small. I have seen them. And they make the world a better place.
