Rakin’ Up Kin

Thankful Thursday sees the sun, a bit of a breeze, and walks with friends. Today I was blessed to walk with two friends who got to meet each other for the first time. As we walked and shared, connections were made with mutual friends and places they shared together.

As these connnection were made throughout the walk, I soaked up the joy of experiencing the definition of a southern term I just learned about: “Rakin’ Up Kin.” Making ties with mutual friends and experiences bringing this big world we live in to a smaller and more connected and shared space we enjoy and care for.

When is the last time you got to be the one rakin’ up kin? Made connections with another person over perviously unknown connections? Just thinking back to these conversations brings a smile to my face. I hope that you also get to “rakin’ up kin” in the near future and experience the fun of connecting!
