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.

Some Christmas themed posts are popping up in the blogosphere. I’m starting this week’s round-up with a delightful anticipation-filled post from Beth Thompson .

Karin shares some tips on how to cope with holiday pressures when you are on a dietary regime.

I know only too well that the Holidays can be hard on those of us who are grieving. Nancy has some wise tips to cope with grief at this time of year.

Elsewhere in the blogosphere…

A warm welcome back to the weekly round-up to Terri and Barb this week.

I love this reminder from Lisa Valentine to find gratitude in our everyday activities.

One way to approach gratefulness is to look for it in activities that we do regularly. Giving thanks for teeth, toothpaste, and running water while we brush our teeth. Giving thanks for the washer and dryer, loved ones, and electricity while we fold the family’s laundry.

In their latest posts, KayAnn and Lisa write about the ongoing struggle for normality when living with a Stage 4 cancer.

Fab shares a child’s perspective on dealing with a mother with breast cancer.

Cathy continues with Part V of her super series on improving outcomes, energy, stamina, and strength after breast cancer. This week’s focus is on exercise.

An important topic for discussion on Let Life Happen this week – The Doctor/Patient Relationship and Insurance Companies.

A lovely reminder from Connie to balance work with play.

And finally, this week’s writing prompt.  You may like to write about it on your own blog, or simply leave a comment below.



Until next week,

Yours with much love always
