This country, and the whole world have been going through some very trying times lately. Every single one of us has been financially impacted by it or knows someone that has been. I would agree more with the first part, that EACH of us has been hurt to some degree.
Here’s where the soapbox comes in: WE need to stand together and help each other. WE need to talk to one another and listen. WE need to stay positive in the worst of times. WE need to voice our frustrations to the people in power.
Get a group of your friends together and start a weekly (or however often you can do it) wine club where you do a blind tasting, or simply sit around chatting over a glass of wine (even cheap wine will do). Wine always has and always will bring people together. Form a group, see where it goes. Maybe it will lead to a money making idea and meaningful friendships. Be a group of thinkers, listeners, and problem solvers…be a community.
Amazingly wonderful things have come from horrific times; choose your side of the fence…positive or negative. Wine and collaborating can, and probably will, solve some of the problems in our lives. When a group of likeminded people get together with a common problem, often wonderful solutions come about.
I do think wine is enough to keep US together, because wine IS friendship, laughter, tears, hugs, support, helpful, reminiscing, encouraging, holidays, family, love…wine IS life. Now go start your Hoot N Annie Wine Support Group!!! And let us know how it goes, seriously…you are part of our community! Let us know how we can help!!
