This month is all about connections here on my blog. It's really a celebration of connections. You know those unexpected, surprise connections that result in life changes? There are good ones, and there are bad ones.
For instance, a good friend in Louisville invited me to spend Labor Day Weekend with her. I was living out of state at the time, so drove in. While there, I received a lead on a job, and met my future husband.
That was a "Connect - Disconnect Connection." I connected with an old friend, met a new friend and my life changed course. By the end of the year, I was married and working at that new job.
Things don't always happen so fast, and they are not always positive. Some disconnects include death, divorce, and disease/illness (the 3 D's). Sometimes, even these devastating disconnects can result in positive changes.

Friendships are often the connects that last longest. And many gain their best life opportunities through friends. A little later this month, I'll talk about some of these connections. The ones I've made as I started my writer's journey. I'm going to drop a few names in that post. Maybe yours will be there. I've made a lot of friends since starting down this road. Folks traveling the same route with similar life experiences are often bound together in friendship--a sense of "kinship"--because we understand, better than anyone.
Think about a time in your life, you made a positive connect - disconnect connection. Consider how it changed your life for the better--set you on a new road. It may have been your marriage, or your education, your occupation, or even your encounter with God. I would love for you to share that moment if you have the time, in our comment section.
I've got a couple of guests stopping by later this month to share their experience with connections. I hope you'll stop back in to read what they have to say. And, as always, thanks for stopping by.
