Different and the same

We are all so different.

We are Catholic, Protestant, Muslim, atheist.  Politically left of center, right of center, apathetic, ignorant.  We are unschoolers, cyberschoolers, public-schoolers and everything in between.  We drink decaf, full-caf, and nothing at all.  Our kids play shooter video games and no games. We are technologically savvy and plugged-in, and we are... not.   We protest oil pipelines and we say "drill, baby, drill." 

We are just a group of mothers and friends, and when we sit around that coffee shop table at our once-a-month gatherings, we laugh and cry and talk and enjoy each other.  We disagree and argue (not too loud) and laugh (that's when we're loud) some more.  We love the ways we are different and the ways we are the same.

And we can't wait till next month to do it all over again.
