Welcome to the Friday inspirational roundup! While I occasionally publish it on Saturdays, I much prefer it going live on Friday as it’s the end of many peoples’ work weeks and always nice to get a bit of inspiration as we head into the weekend. That being said, do you have a preference for when it publishes? Here are the latest inspirational blogs from… you!
Making Christmas wreathes
Xmas is almost here! Let’s get into the holiday spirit – not everyone is quite there yet – with this lovely Wreath Making post from Eliza Waters. I encourage you to follow her blog if you are not already as her photography and flower arrangements are so lovely.
talking about Down Syndrome
This inspirational blog post is a Q&A between the mother of a boy with Down syndrome called River and Rebecca (aka The Coastal Mommy). I love the way the way the questions are answered as it shows unconditional love, that having Down syndrome is not going to hold someone back from what he or she is capable of doing, and that there is much for us to learn about DS.
A Santa story
Christmas brings out the kid in many of us! This is the kind of statement that likely spurred Alison of the Through rose tinted glasses blog to write about a sweet memory in a post titled The night Santa’s elves filled my stocking! It speaks of family traditions, the fun of Santa, and the magic of the holidays.
Living with purpose
In this write-up, Radically Jess writes about Living Deliberately. It’s about creating mini-goals to reach big goals, finding your passion, and reaching for your objectives. It’s always helpful to read these types of blog posts, I think, to assess where we are in life and make the most of our precious time on this Earth.
An inspirational blogs boost
This inspiring blog post comes from Veronica Marie’s self-titled blog. In My favorite ways to get inspired, she writes about ways to find inspiration and motivation. From writing in a journal to browsing Pinterest, there are many great ways suggested here to get those creative juices flowing again.
Improving kids’ reading skills
Sight words for children is a way to develop their reading skills, explains a new post on the family blog Settle in El Paso. The writer, whom I’ve followed now for some time, explains what exactly are sight words and how to introduce them to your child. This is a great educational post for parents!
Poetry for peace
Johnathan Caswell is a very giving blogger who regularly reblogs inspiring blog posts – He’s sharing inspiration, and it’s wonderful to see! He also regularly writes poetry, and I wanted to share this one by him that is titled Uncork That Bottle. I like the line about finding “rare feelings of peace” – yes to that!
Dolly’s recipe book launch
Congratulations to Dolly of Kook Kosher Kitchen for launching her first collection of recipes! She regularly shares great (yummy) creations on her blog and now to see she has a Kindle book with a compilation of them is very exciting. A paperback version of Kook Kosher Kitchen: Collection of Recipes will follow shortly. I’m wishing her all the best!
