The Rules: share at least one post by a blogger other than yourself. That's it. One rule - easy peasy! It's a fun and creative way to share some love and find some great posts. And don't even get me started on meeting some amazing new bloggers! And, it's easy. And nice. And, just link up because you know you want to.
Here are my favorite posts this week:
"Metaphorical Whiplash" by An Auspicious Adventure. Pain is hard, and in times of pain, it's even harder to find hope and hold on to it. Casey is doing an amazing job as she deals with a suffering parent. This post is such a great reminder of where to turn in times of need, in times of hope, in times of pain.
"Taylor Grace" by Anchors Aweigh. Oh, my heart. This was completely unexpected and heartbreaking news to read this week. Sweet Taylor Grace is not expected to live a very long life once she's born, and her parents show their strength in this raw, gut-wrenching post.
"We decked the halls!" by Mix and Match Family. A girl after my own heart, Shay shares her holiday decorations in her new home, including a 12-foot Christmas tree! Holy wow! The looks she captured of her sweet, sweet hubby while putting up said tree is just priceless.
"Christmas Home Tour" by Living in Yellow. Another early Christmas decorator, after my own heart! It's also this girl's first holiday season in her new home and she was super excited to decorate. All of the little detail pictures in this post makes me just swoon for Christmas.
Okay, so I have two heavy, deep, pretty sad posts and two posts completely filled with all things Christmas decorating. #sorrynotsorry. It's what's been on my heart and mind this week: being thankful for what I have and am blessed with while others are suffering and going through some hard knocks that life's thrown their way and all things Christmas. No surprise there. :)
Happy Friday, y'all!
