  1. #11 I'm Julia's Mom - "If we tell kids the Swing is different and off limits are we accidentally telling them that the kids who use the Swing are different and off limits?" Thank you as always Ellen!

      Are you there?! Hello?! Did you delete your own comment? Been there, done that!! Sometimes you write out a comment, click "publish" and then it is no good.... Right? ;)
      I wanted to tell you something, Friend. I have "met" so many Blogging Friends this past month {Meredith.S.... Jack.... Kathryn A.... Adelaide Dupont.... Silvia Phillips.... Brittany Porter.... Angel The Alien....} all because of you, Anna!! I feel like I'm part of a community, a circle, a force.... All thanks to you!! ;-D

    2. Yes, Raelyn.

      We had already known each other since about 2012-13 when you started writing your stories and putting them on Minuscule is good and your Rose blog. [And writing regularly on LOVE THAT MAX of course].

      It's true that in the past month that we had been corresponding more and more directly on FlutistPride and Disability Diaries.

      [hadn't written anything on Love, Hope, Faith, Bethany though I do read and am subscribed to the videos of the Phillips family].

      Yes - being part of a circle; a community; a force - is important.

      That is what Love That Max had given me in great part since the end of 2009, when it was one of the many family blogs I had visited.

      Did you know that Bruce Springsteen is no longer singing in North Carolina due to the transsexuality laws in that state? Cirque de Soleil made a stand.

    3. Adelaide Dupont....
      Wow.... Really?! You and I have "known" each other for about four years?! Either I forgot about that {curse my premature short-term memory loss!!} or I did not realize it, Friend!! Probably because you have not left any comments on either one of my Blogs? But then again. Neither have I.... ;)
      Yes, Love That Max is, indeed a circle, a community, a force.... Which I feel very much an active part of!! Thanks, Ellen!! ;-D
      Yes, I do know that Bruce cancelled his show on April 10th in North Carolina due to the transgender laws in that state!! My immediate reaction? "Good for him for standing up for what he believes in!!" Although I do not disagree with Bruce's reasons behind protesting the passing of HB2, I'm currently in the process of writing a private, personal journal entry of my thoughts, feelings, emotions and opinions about this issue. I didn't know that Cirque de Soleil made a stand against North Carolina's transgender laws, as well!! Good for them!! Now see what Bruce and the E Street Band started?! ;)

      PS. Sorry, long comment!! This is exactly why I cannot do Twitter!! ;-D

  3. I'm at #18 and 19. I especially encourage going to #18 and analyzing my song choices.


Thanks for sharing!
