People Are the Gifts

Some friends save your life

Sometimes people are the gifts. I’ve often gained what I lacked via a relationship. So much of what has enriched my life can’t be bought in a store or ordered online. Instead, my most valued resources have been the care, thoughtfulness, love, and generosity of others.




This is a safe place for your confessions, struggles, and thoughts. All in the name of acceptance, love, and support. Writers and readers come together in this close-knitted community of ours. Be part of us. 👐
