Weekly Round-Up: Holidays Are Coming Edition


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.

There’s a sense of the year ending on many blogs this week – Renza, Nancy, Karin, Barb and Chris close out the year with a review of 2018  and a look towards 2019.

Another ending, but of a more permanent kind is the closing of The Underbelly blog.

Christmas themed posts from Beth, CathyTric, FabTammy, Barbara and Connie.

Tracy asks us to spare a thought for the healthcare professionals who work over the holidays.

Lovely post from Terri on the best gifts you can give a cancer patient.

Beautiful writing on the winter solstice from Yvonne.

An important post from Carolyn on cardiac misdiagnosis in women.

Both Johanna and Becky write reflective posts on remission this week.

Ilene is having a tough time at the moment – please read her blog and share your thoughts on her latest post about praying for cancer patients.

Susan shares a testament to the power of social networking and a collective desire to reach out and help someone in need.

And finally, this week’s writing prompt.  This week’s prompt is in  keeping with the theme of closing out the year. 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
