Lucky or unlucky #13? Given the cold that doesn’t seem to want to let go of this body of mine, I’d be compelled to say unlucky. But then again it has forced me to take time for myself, and that’s a blessing. It is a reminder that, yes, I need self-care. Hence this post is a day late!
Let’s enjoy the inspirational blog posts you’ve all written this week and rejoice in the good rather than dwelling on the bad. Turn off the news headlines for a few minutes and enjoy some uplifting reads with me.
Heart Health: Not Just a Man’s Disease
Love Your Heart Australia offers powerful writing with the blog post Not Just a Male’s Disease. While heart disease is often thought of specifically in terms of affecting men, it also is an illness that affects many women. While the statistics presented here are specific to Australia, women around the world would be wise to learn the message behind them. Let’s educate ourselves to help prevent heart attacks!
Prayers for Las Vegas
This week was rocked by the Las Vegas shootings. This poem for the tragedy comes from blogger Christina of seaofwordsx. As she explains, the world needs love now more than ever. Reach out to those you care about and tell them you love them today, not tomorrow.
Kindness with Sunshinysa
This blog post from Sunshinysa is all about kindness, which we can never have too much of. I like her discussion of random acts of kindness, the quotes she includes, and the overall uplifting message here. It’s a good note to end this roundup post on, don’t you think? ♥

Since I was born on August 13th, I never visualize this number to ever be unlucky for me, only blessed to the highest for being born on this special number. Thanks for the post, good read!
You’re a summer baby, like me :) 13 is a special number indeed!

Yes, job interview preparation is an essential part of the job hunt! Thanks again Lee for your quality post.
Thanks Christy! Have a good day!!
Christy, thank you so much for including my post Not Just a Males Disease in your weekly round up!! I feel honoured to have been included, especially amongst some other great blog posts.

I look forward to reading your next blog posts and love that your blog is focussed on inspirational women, it is very empowering! Thanks again for the write-up, hopefully, we will all learn how to love our hearts and protect them from heart disease. -G

So happy to hear :) <3
Many hugs <3
Happy weekend sweet girl . <3
I love coming over here and seeing all the beautiful, inspirational things! It’s an outpouring of love over here and it all just warms my heart. I loved the Michelle Obama tribute and had to go over there, read, comment and share. Thank you for this inspiring series, sweet friend! Sending hugs and wishes for a happy Sunday!
So nice you see the love here, Cyndi. That means more to me than you could know! Have a beautiful week ahead ~ Always great to see you <3 :)
Just wanted to say that you do a terrific job with your weekly roundups.
You’re very kind to leave this message here. The feedback is great to have!
Another lovely roundup with many wonderful bloggers and interesting posts, Christy. I am sorry that you’re not feeling well. I hope you feel better soon.
It’s lovely to see you, as always, Norah! I’m happy to report that my cold is almost completely gone now ~ So I’m glad to be back xx
I’m pleased you’re feeling better, Christy. Take time to recuperate fully though. :)
Your care for me is so nice, Norah :) Have a splendid weekend!
Thanks, Christy. My weekend was great. I hope yours is/was too. :)
Yes, thanks! It’s raining so much today and a wind warning in effect too… Let’s hope for calmer weather here tomorrow :)
I hope so, Christy. :)
Get well soon, Christy! 😀❤️ Thanks for sharing these with us, inspiring and interesting as always…prayers indeed for all those in Las Vegas. Hugs xx
Those prayers are appreciated by all, Annika. And thanks for the well wishes too ~ I’m close to 100 percent again xx ((relieved))
I hope you recover very very soon Christy!🙂 What we do in India is add half a spoon of haldi(turmeric) in a cup of hot milk and drink 3 times a day. Within one day you will feel better and you won’t have the aftermath of cold – chest congestion and cough!!☺☺☺☺♥️
And….I love Michelle Obama💕
I appreciate the advice – and it means even more knowing it hails from India and your caring home, Swati <3 I'm feeling SO MUCH better now :)
Aw! That is so sweet of you Christy! You are so humble and friendly with your comments🙂🙂 I really appreciate that💕💕💕🙂🙂🙂🙂🙂🙂
I feel the same way about YOUR comments, Swati! I have a feeling we’d be good friends in real life (outside of the digital realm) if we lived closer to one another :) BIG hugs <3
Definitley! I got exactly the same vibe from you. That’s why I asked for your insta handle, to knw you better🙂🙂 But its great we can communicate here🙂🙂BIG hugs back at you💕💕💕💕
Thank you as always, for sharing Christy. Love finding other bloggers. And feel better! I’m glad you are taking your own advice and taking care of YOU. :-)
Hi Loretta, yes I had to take my own advice for sure and rest up… Not as easy as it sounds to do. I’m pleased to say I’m almost fully recovered now ((skips around the house))
Christy, colds can be murder. I often think man has gone to the moon but failed to get a cure for the most common ailment. Get well. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Hahaha the illusive cold! You’ve got that right, Shey ;) I’m almost fully recovered now and feeling so thankful for your being here xx
I hope you feel better soon, Christy, and thanks for the uplifting post. xo
Hi Lauren, you’re so sweet. Today I feel much more like “Christy” and for that I’m thankful. Hugs!
Christy, hope you are recovering all the way! It took me 2 weeks to feel 90% better. Oil of oregano sure helped with the throat/ear thing. Now my computer is sick. Wish I could just spritz oil of oregano over it! ♡♡
Resa, you’re the second person here to tell me about the powers of oregano! That simply cannot be ignored! I’m feeling so much better today. Really nice to get your well wishes. Hopefully your laptop – the new one – is feeling 100% today!
Ugh! Christy it’s absolutely miserable to have a cold. I’m sorry you have to deal with that. Please do be good to you.
Even though you felt bad you still put together a lovely roundup and week.
I choose to think 13 is a lucky number.
Wishing you well. Hugs on the wing!
The roundup is one of the highlights of my week, Teagan, so it’s my pleasure to share it. I’m feeling much better today ~ Yahoooo! Hugging back without worry about infecting you with cold germs ;)
Taking an oregano oil capsule every day will ward off colds (and sinus infections and allergies). Google “oregano oil benefits.” It may also help you kick this one. Feel better soon.
You’re so helpful. I like that it’s a natural remedy. Thank you!
Have a fabulous weekend!
You, too! I hope you’re feeling better!
Thanks! I’m feeling soooo much better :)
You’re such an inspiration! Great post🌸
Ohhhh **so kind**
Dear Christy, your kindness is huge :)
Oh Ben… Thank you my friend :)
