Mother Clucker (Community Catalyst)
I sit at the cafe. I smile at people. People smile at me. Soon, strangers become friends who become family. The relationships spill out of the cafe into birthday parties and rides to the airport. After 7 years of this, hundreds of locals have formed a loose but organic network of authentic community, radiating from interactions begun over lattes. I'm grateful to be raising my son amidst such an amazingly diverse "framily." And I'm excited about equipping others to build relationships wherever they are.
