Weekly Round Up


Time for this week’s round-up of the best of the blog posts which I’ve read over the past week. These are the posts that have moved me, taught me something, inspired me, and which I’ve wanted to share with you. Don’t forget if you have written a post which you would like readers to see, just leave a comment below.

Have I mentioned  my new project to  you?   I cannot remember now if I have told you about  the Global Village of Storytelling, an online community dedicated to narrative, storytelling, community, and well-being.   I am hoping you will share your stories with me there to create a diverse communy of storytellers. My lovely friend Audrey has shared her story – you  can read it on her blog (as a bonus, it contains one of my favourite  quotes from Mary Oliver).

A thoughtful post by Elizabeth on living with intention. As companion pieces read Eileen on Post Election Self-Care and Florence‘s post on mindfulness.

Caroline has had enough of wallowing.

Delighted to see the Pink Underbelly back blogging again.

Carrie shares her thoughts on breast reconstruction.

Super post from Chris on Looking Beyond The ‘Cancer Label’.

Sally looks back on a year since she finished her breast cancer treatment.

Some practical tips shared by Helen on adpating to life in a wheelchair.

Interesting post by Nancy on being a “wimpy” patient.

My prize  – if there was a prize  😉 –  this week for the most creative blog title goes to Detrice for The Jumblings of Life – a shepherd and a reindeer.

Finally this week I leave you with a beautiful reflection by Pasha on standing with our ancestors.


remember, we are the result of the love of thousands



Until next week,

Yours with love
