It’s summer…but we haven’t taken a vacation!

It’s upon us! Summer! Some part of me is still like the school-aged child who longs for the long, lazy days of summer with great excitement. (Although I’m barely holding my head above water this week as the two summer sub terms at college are ove

rlapped for the next two weeks! No rest for the passionate and called!)

Our group, small and humble as it is,  IS  still meeting however, on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month. The doors open at 6:45pm, and we wrap up at 8:30pm. There is no cost, however, donations are accepted and used to continue the reach to children in hoarded homes, creating programs for those affected by hoarding, and creating an official group literature.

Here is our meeting schedule through December!

TUESDAY, July 10th and July 24th

TUESDAY, August 14th and August 28th

TUESDAY, September 11th and September 25th

TUESDAY, October 9th and 23rd    

(**NOTE: October has FIVE Tuesdays, so there is a three week gap between the last meeting of October and the first one in November!**)

TUESDAY, November 13th and November 27th

TUESDAY, December 11th

THERE WILL BE NO MEETING ON TUESDAY, DECEMBER 25TH. GROUP MEETINGS WILL RESUME IN JANUARY ON THE SAME SCHEDULE.

If you have considered joining us and haven’t yet, here’s a brief description of what we’ve been sharing!

Normal is only a setting on the dryer. The word “normal” carries with it heavy connotations and sets us up for failure immediately. Especially when I’ve come from a family and background that seems so contrary to societal “norms”, I have a hard time striving to be this elusive descriptor. Instead, we seek to have “healthy and beneficial” experiences, relationships, and goals. Additionally, we recognize that at times, what is healthy and beneficial for ourselves (for me), may not be the same as for you. I have every right to share my concern and/or refusal when you ask me to compromise to a way that is unhealthy and is NOT beneficial. I am worthy of that much respect and dignity (and much, much more!)!
