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.
I hope those of you who celebrated had a lovely Christmas. I loved seeing Becky‘s pics of Christmas in the Canyons – a Christmas with a difference.
I’m acutely aware of those for whom this season is a lonely and sad one for many reasons. Karin has some wise and compassionate advice for those who struggle with loneliness at this time.
This time of the year is naturally a time for reflection and as we stand on the cusp of a new year, Audrey reflects back on a year of paradox in her own life.
A tough post to read on Susan Rosen‘s blog – the reality of metastatic breast cancer without any sugar-coating.
Dee looks back on 12 months of blogging about ovarian cancer in her latest post.
Having only discovered Cathy‘s blog towards the end of this year, it’s a real pleasure to take time to read her year-end round-up. I recommend you set aside some time and do the same.
I really enjoyed reading Sue‘s comfort list this week – a list of stress-relieving tips she has tried over the past couple of years.
This is also a time of looking forward as well as back, as Connie so beautifully captures in her latest post.
We’re in that period of the year that feels like suspended time, hanging between the current year and approaching the new one, taking those uncertain steps toward the future.
Looking toward the new year Danielle has a New Year’s resolution with a difference.
As I’m not one for making new year’s resolutions, so I really like both Barbara and Lisa’s resolve to make every day count next year.
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
Thanks for another great Round Up, Marie. Wishing you and everyone in our community a Happy 2019 filled with Hope and Support for the Journey before you.
It’s been such a pleasure getting to know you better this year Connie through your wonderful blog.
Thanks so much, Marie. I’ve enjoyed getting to know you as well and the wonderful work you’re doing for so many. Happy Almost 2019!
Hi Marie and everyone,
I hope you are having a good holiday and wish you the best in the new year. For the most part I am looking forward to having 2018 done. It has been a difficult year for me. One highlight of the year, however, was seeing our chapter published in the everyday ethics book. It was such a joy working with you on writing the paper. We should find an excuse to collaborate again sometime soon …
Becky it was such a joy working with you – let’s put our heads together and see if we can collaborate again in 2019!
