Keeping the connections …

Continuing in my mission to de-clutter and organize, I came across a box of cards. I’m sure I haven’t look at them in many, many years. The cards were for my ‘going-away’ party when I left my job in Minnetonka for my new job in Anoka. That was twenty-plus years ago …


My heart was warmed looking at the cards, as I thought about many of the lovely people that I considered my friends. But it also made me a little sad as I read things like: “Please keep in touch!” Over the years, I have lost track of most of these folks. I kept fairly regular contact with two of them but I have now lost touch with them. I would love to get in touch with these folks, but many of them are now gone from the city, perhaps gone from the earth.

My ‘going-away’ party, twenty plus years ago. 

All of this just continues to remind me that it is important to maintain those connections, to keep the relationships alive. It’s also important to make new connections. This week I’m starting a new needlecraft group – designed to get people of similar interests together and create/recreate those connections. I hope you will continue connecting and making new connections. It’s what life is all about.

Thanks for reading!
