What is Community?

You may have noticed that I've been a little light on posting this past week.  I was feeling quite a bit under the weather and wasn't spending much time at the computer. 

During my convalescence, I was reading The Hundred Languages of Children: The Reggio Emilia Approach - Advanced Reflections (second edition) edited by Carolyn Edwards, Lella Gandini and George Forman.  A little light reading, you know?  Anyway, there was a quote from the second chapter that really jumped out at me:

Communities are groups of people who can do together what they could not accomplish alone and who have a stake in each others' well-being.

On that note, I'd like to take this chance to publicly thank all the wonderful members of our Wellspring community who have taken the time to drop me an email or call, or otherwise check in on me, or even send meals for our family.  It has meant the world to me - I am so grateful to be a part of this wonderful group of people!
