Announcing The 2011 Friendships Series

Announcing The 2011 Friendships Series

Today is a New Year. A year like none other, carrying a name never carried before…2011. Happy New Year.

At the end of 2010, I had an opportunity to participate in a First Things First Series hosted/sponsored/created/developed by Hartley Steiner over at Hartleys Life With 3 Boys. For my contribution, I took an overall look at Friendships and how they’ve changed, morphed, disappeared and reformed in our new special needs life. It seemed a good way to kick of 2011, the largest single moment when everyone around the world will be determined, even if only for a few weeks, to make a positive change in their lives, by continuing the look at Friendships. So, I’m hosting my first series with highlighted guest bloggers.

Coming from different backgrounds and perspectives, each person tells a story of a struggle, humor, triumphs or angels. You’ll find yourself laughing, remembering, considering how friendships / relationships are formed, kept or forgiven in your own life. As for that post for First Things First, I invite you to read that here.
