Wednesday Words of Wisdom: Community

10 Apr

“Community is a sign that love is possible in a materialistic world where people so often either ignore or fight each other. It is a sign that we don’t need a lot of money to be happy–in fact, the opposite.”
― Jean Vanier, Community And Growth

I am very lucky to live in a very special city. McKinney has a beating heart that welcomes everyone. Yesterday, I spent the entire day with various activities, Zumba at the YMCA, the afternoon crafting and visiting at Sweet Spot Bakery, then our monthly pot luck at Mckinney Creative Community.

McKinney Creative Community is a group of talented artists, writers, musicians, and other creative souls that gather the second Tuesday evening of every month at SPARC, just north of the square. Their purpose is to nourish, share, and support each other and give back to their community. I’ve made some wonderful friends here. Everyone is welcome. (You can find a link on Facebook.)

I am thankful for and treasure all the special people in my community.
