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 that I’ve wanted to share with you. Don’t forget that if you have written a post that you would like readers to see, just leave a comment below.
Those who know Siobhan Freeney‘s crusading work in advocating that women undergoing mammography should be informed about the risk of breast density and screening will be interested to read her evidence-based look into the reasons why breast density notification is crucial.
Self-advocacy is also the topic of Abigail‘s latest post.
Which kind of gift would mean the most to someone who is going through breast reconstruction? Terri posted a list of wonderful gift ideas that answers this question on her blog.
Rod writes about the stigma surrounding male breast cancer.
Nancy is celebrating the arrival of a new family member – a puppy named Titus.
Carolyn takes us on a “horticultural roller coaster ride” with her balcony roses.
Jennifer offers tips for those who experience pre-travel anxiety.
Connie shares a loving tribute to a supportive friend.
Barbara writes about the “new face of breast cancer.”
Powerful post from Audrey reflecting on grief and legacy in the wake of the death of Olivia Newton-John.
Finally this week, a reminder from Dee about the importance of rest – and how a writing prompt inspired her post. So if you are also looking for a prompt to get writing again, I’ll leave you with the following one.
Until next week,
Yours with much love always
Dear Marie – thanks so much for sharing my “illustrated overview” of the rose drama unfolding out on my little balcony…
I’m learning a lot from your posts Carolyn – mostly I am learning how much work is involved in growing balcony roses! However it has inspired me to try growing one myself – so we shall see how it goes 🙂
Hi Marie, Thank you for this week’s round-up and for including my post about Titus. Hoping you have a wonderful week. Hoping that for all of us. x
So lovely to hear about the new addition to your family Nancy. Wishing you all many happy years together
