Know what I love most about blogging? Reading all of your stories. Plain and simple. I love being welcomed into your worlds and I love being able to share some of our story with you! I'm really excited about the last minute link-up prompt from Andrea today because as much as I would love to sit and read post after post, I just can't. None of us can.
So I'm thrilled to see the highlight reels of your blogs and dive in to the words and work you are most proud of. I truly find such wisdom from so many people and I just hope that some of my words hold meaning for some of you. A few of my favorite posts...
Knowing your partner's strengths and weaknesses is important, but knowing how they give and RECEIVE love is a game changer. I really enjoyed sharing 25 Ways to Show Your Husband Love
Ryan and I celebrated 10 years of marriage this year and I didn't get him a real gift. ;) Instead, I wrote about the 10 Biblical Gifts marriage has given to me.
I really did laugh out loud writing about my spin on Life After 5 and may have to write up a sequel since a new school year has begun. Maybe something like "Lessons learned in the pick-up line".
Sometimes I am moved and write passionately from a place that I didn't know existed. I think when I talked about Loving Thy Neighbor His words were being shared, not mine. And His are way more important than anything I have to say.
I get all sappy about my kids. They are the reason I started blogging and they are the ultimate story to tell. The way they love. How brave they can be. How much compassion they have and grace they give. This space wouldn't be anything without them. I have a jar of pennies that I look at to remind me that we are given a mere 936 weeks with them before they are 18. That's $9.36... how would you spend it?
I'm half-way there with Radley.
And if you just want to see a ton of pictures of some DARLING kids (in my most humble opinion of course) then just click here.
I treasure my time with you, sweet reader-friends. I find such treasure and wisdom in stories...like Shelly's tips on a successful marriage. I gain sanity from your incredible lessons like Holly's insider review of the KonMari method of tidying up. I fall in-love with every bit of Kim's space on her home tour.
Have a great day! Thanks for a fun link-up Andrea!
