The Friendship Project – 1/13

I need a someone

I just need to quit talking about it and do it

I need something to look forward to

I need a reason to leave my apartment

I so look forward to Thursday night, it is about the only thing I do all week

Every week we hear members saying these things.  The last couple of months, they have been my topics that I have talked about.

But actions speak louder than words.  How can this group really help?  Yes we talk each week, but there has to be more.  There has to be.

We are more than our illness.  We are more than our problems.  Much more.  Every one of us.  Much more.

What if we could get to know each other for more than our problems…

So, what is the answer?  What can this group do to most help it’s members in their darkest hour?

The answer is simple.

It is the group itself.  Not as a group, but as individuals.  

To that end, and using a recent gift the group has received, we are going to try something new.  Thursdays will remain Thursdays.  No change there.

But once every few months there will be something more.  Something positive, something fun.  Something entirely different.

This is what the Friendship Project is all about, making friends with each other and knowing each other for more than just our problems.
