Weekly Round-Up: The Gratitude 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.

Thanksgiving was celebrated in the US this past week and gratitude is the theme of Nancy Seibel‘s, Abigail‘s, Janet‘s, Barbara‘s and Terri‘s latest posts.

A beautiful statement of gratitude on Johanna‘s blog this week:

I still choose to remain in gratitude for each day. Each day these eyes manage to open is one to be thankful for. I planted daffodils and crocuses to invest in next spring, and I  make wishful, hopeful travel plans. My daughter still has homework, my husband likes a good meal. Friends are treasures, better than gold.

A thanksgiving hike is an occasion for reflection by Connie on finding the courage to step forward on a new path.

Karin shares thoughts on the healing power of gratitude.

As someone who is a big bah humbug about Christmas approaching, I appreciated Ilene‘s realistic take on the coming holidays.

A guest post on Ticking Off Cancer on breast cancer and fertility.

Susan Rahn is back after a lengthy absence from the blogosphere with a thought-provoking and challenging post on the changing nature of advocacy.

Becky updates us with her news from her latest oncology and back surgery appointments.

Julia is taking a break from writing her memoirs to focus on the online community project that she will be running in January 2020 –  if you would like to find out more (and sign up) you can do so here.

Finally this week, I leave you with a writing prompt. You may like to write about it on your own blog, or simply leave a comment below.

Yours with much love always,
