In my early childhood, my family would get together for the holidays. It would take more than my parents to prepare for the multitiide of family.  Needless to say each family member prepared their special dish.  I suppose thats what made our family celebration special, each one contributed ." Wow I remember those days"

That reminds me of our support group (MAO)

Not one of us , are the the same and each member has something different to bring.








I would like to think the above holds us together.

My family still does that sort of thing.  Everybody brings their special dishes to a Christmas pot luck...and the support was definitely there.  Just like the MAO site. All those things do hold us together!  You're very, very right!

Hello Angelicamarie. Yes! we still work together on our get togethers. It's so much easier when everyone chips in with homemade food and effort.

There are a few who come and enjoy themselves without participating in any other way but we still welcome them as guests and they participate in the company they bring.

It's also, just as you say with this site. It's so much better for us all when we all muck in and help each other with 'food-for-thought' and the effort to take part in whatever way we can. Those who don't participate overtly do occasionally let us know how much they appreciate our company and this makes the group a cohesive and supportive whole.

Thanks for another pertinent post.

Best wishes
