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.

Running through joy and sorrow, Maureen completes a challenge.
Barbara extols the benefits of walking.

What’s next for cancer treatment in a post-covid world? Chris tackles the question in his latest post.
Finally this week, I’d like to leave you with a quote from Abigail on looking for silver linings.
…looking for the silver lining, looking outside the box of the trauma or difficulty, is looking for the hope that shines behind it. The silver lining beckons us, it inspires us, it communicates that there is something beyond the current moment, the sable cloud.
Until next week,
May you continue to find a silver lining no matter your circumstances
Yours with much love always
