In Case You Missed It:
Happy Friday, everybody! We hope you’ve all had a great week and are gearing up for a fabulous weekend! Here’s a quick look at some of our top stories just in case you weren’t able to check them out.
Sometimes it can be hard to be content with our daily lives when the day to day tasks get mundane and what not. Jackie P. has given us some great ways to accomplish this in 10 From GEM: Daily Commitments For Finding Happiness – you might be surprised at how the little things can make a HUGE difference!
You all know Rene speaks a lot about saving herself and how no one else is going to do that for you. Well, it’s true and this week, she gave us Monday Morning Motivation: 3 Ways To Learn To Save Yourself! in an effort to show and teach us all how to do just that! Do it!
Andi lost a very special person in her life recently and in this month’s Live, Love, Blend, she shared how her family came together from all around the country to celebrate the life of her grandmother. Read Live, Love, Blend: Celebrating Life And Family Bonds for a look at this special, albeit difficult celebration.
Did you guys follow the case where the Michigan judge sent 3 children to juvenile detention for refusing to see their father? Well, let me just say that I felt like this was an “interesting” way of dealing with what was going on. Take a look at Better, Not Bitter: Punishing the Kids for Parental Alienation where Wilma gives her take on it. I definitely raised an eyebrow – what do you think about it?
I always used to think it would be so much fun to have twins until I had my first child and realized how much work a newborn was! All of the things that go along with having a baby can be exhausting (and wonderful) but imagining all of that and multiplying it by two makes my head spin! Julixa brought up a great point this week in her Tales From A Twin Mom: Telling Your Identical Twins Apart – getting your twins mixed up never even occurred to me!
That’s all for this week – hope you all enjoy your day and weekend!
