Have you heard the phrase, “Not My Monkeys, Not my Circus” before? Well, I want to tell you about the book club I am a member of. The Books & Broads Book Club and the Members of it ARE my monkeys and they ARE my circus and I would not have it any other way! 🙂
We all long to find that one place, you know the one, Dear Bloggites, the place that you can just be you in all your quirky glory and be accepted and loved. It is that place that becomes your haven in a rough world; your lighthouse to your lost boat; your circus to your monkey.
March 13, 2015, I found My Monkeys and My Circus. I did not realize that taking that break from life to visit a book club would change my life forever, but it has, and I am so grateful for it! There were roughly 7 ladies and 14 eyeballs that looked at me when I walked though that fateful door. After a moment of being in the amazing presence of these ladies, I knew I found My Monkeys. THIS was My Circus.
From all walks of life, we come being drawn by a love for books but it is our chemistry, our easy way with each other that makes the magic happen each month. The shared love and care we all have for and with one another is hard to find in life. I have many challenges in my life that pull at me and demand from me which drains my spirit but once I walk into that room, with those ladies, I am renewed and refreshed. I feel all the strain seep out of my body until only happiness and joy are left.
The Books & Broads Book Club is my sanctuary in life. I look forward to the day I can revisit Our Circus and be our Quirky Monkey selves! I will never be able to express my Love, Appreciation, and Joy these Amazing Women bring into my life, I am just forever grateful that on that fateful day in March, I found My Monkeys and My Circus!
I Love You All, My Monkeys! Smooches!
