Five boundaries with a side of grace, please.

Five boundaries with a side of grace, please.

Would you believe that I’m almost half a century old and have only recently discovered that I’m a people pleaser? I mentioned this revelation to a few people I’m close to and they quickly said, “Well I could have told you that!!”. My response was, “Gee! Thanks for clueing me in!” haha!

Saturday Share 1.9.16 #LinkUp {Focus: None}

Saturday Share 1.9.16 #LinkUp {Focus: None}

I do this Saturday Share post each week (mostly) and I think all week long about what the focus should be for my part. For the link up, it’s a big ol’ free for all. My own personal “Please tell me what I missed!” type of thing. Throughout my week, as I read through blogs, watch videos and find what interests me, typically a stream of thought bubbles up and I go that route. But this week, I’m coming up flat. So this week’s focus? None. There is no focus. My brain and my heart are literally all over the map right now. Some days are just like that.

Saturday Share 1.2.16 #LinkUp {Focus: Saving the Good Stuff}

I am busy. Just like you. I think it’s totally cool that Facebook has added the “save link” option. As I peruse through my newsfeed on any given day and don’t have time to read each thing I’m interested in, I save the link. I want to read them. I want to respond to them. I want to learn from them. So I save them. What happens, though, is that I forget about them. That “Saved Links” folder down at the bottom of my sidebar becomes the storage unit that never gets attention and I forget what’s even in there.

Saturday Share 12.12.15 #LinkUp {Focus: Encouragement in Pain}

I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that so many people are struggling during the holiday season. I’ve been one of them more times than I’d like. It’s such a season of contradiction at times. Life is still happening but for some reason we think it all has to stop and we have to happily sip our hot cocoa. I love how more and more of my writer friends are writing about their struggles in this season. But what I love more is how they freely offering not only their story of struggle or pain but they are offering encouragement to others on how they made it through.

Saturday Share #LinkUp 11.28.15 (Focus: #SmallBusinessSaturday #ShopSmall)

I’ve pretty much ignored all of this Black Friday business but I am a huge fan of Small Business Saturday. I have long been a fan of buying good stuff that does good in the process. I thought I’d use this week’s Saturday Share to focus on some of the small business that EPFH promotes and encourage others to link up with theirs.

Thank You Letters #FridayFive #LinkUp

Today I’m feeling particularly thankful. There have been seasons when the words “Happy” and “Merry” in front of any holiday expression were hard enough to say and nearly impossible to feel. On this day, being mindful of my hurts and all who may be hurting, I am reminded of so many things I can be thankful for even in the thick of it.

Saturday Share #LinkUp 11.14.15 (November Adoption Month Focus)

November is National Adoption Month. In this link up, all posts are welcome but I thought I’d use my space here to promote adoption awareness. Adoption happens to be one of my favorite things. People who adopt or defend the orphan happen to be some of my favorite people.
