Like a Good Neighbor

Hello Friends!

how are you today? How are things going?

I owe you all an apology. I am a terrible neighbor. I talk about community and being part of things, and being interactive with those around you. I talk about how connected we all are, and how we are all part of this grand design that was made for community, made to live life together with others, yet I cant commit to becoming part of the community. I try. I hope you can see that I genuinely try. I can give you a list of excuses, but at the end of the day it simply boils down to personal accountability. At the end of the day, I need to make time to be part of this community. So friends, I’m sorry. I am going to make an honest, girl scout effort, to be more diligent in being involved with this community.

With that said…

I hope every one is having a wonderful week. My week has been an emotional roller coaster. Right now I feel like I’m existing between emotions. Its a bit overwhelming. I came across a blog this week that has really helped me feel a little less overwhelmed by the “dailyness” of life. It has given me a sense of community, and given a sense of not being alone. The blog is called Managing Depression. Sandiyee has a wonderful way with words and her posts have such a personal touch that you cant deny her heart is with you even though you may not know her personally (which I sadly don’t…yet…). Managing Depression touches on the personal end of depression. Research, web info, and pamphlets give you general medical definitions and descriptions accompanied by horrifying statistics meant to scare you into talking to friends and family about this potentially debilitating disease, and may even give info on how to approach the topic of depression with someone who may not know they have it. Either way it doesn’t answer questions like “How does this person deal with every day decisions?”, “How do you deal with the craziness of life, motherhood, and things we have no control over?” Sandiyee talks about her life and depression with such hope that you can feel her journey. She makes you walk the path with her, so you can walk it together.

I strongly recommend this blog whether or not you suffer, have questions about, know someone with, or just have a heart for people suffering from depression. Go check it out at:

Friends, you are wonderful. Thank you so very much.

Happy Reading Friends!

  1. Hi Deb, Thank you for this lovely write up for Managing Depression. I was very touched by your words. Would you mind if I put this in my site, as reader feedback?
    Thanks again, and good luck with what’s cooking!
