So, I wasn’t able to get this posted at the end of April as part of Leigh’s linkup. But, since I had been saving links all month to share with you, I thought I’d go ahead and do that anyway. So, here you go! An abbreviated “What I’m Into” that consists solely of blog articles I enjoyed. Hopefully next month will be more complete, and on time. Enjoy!
Little Kids and Death: How Taking My Kids to a Traditional Funeral Didn’t Freak Them Out ~ Kendra has a lot of wisdom to share, typically in a snarky fashion. Her philosophy mirrors ours. We take our kids to funerals, because death is part of life and we want them to know how to deal with it; because they are part of the community that has suffered a loss; and because they are a reminder that life continues and, as such, provide joy in the midst of grief.
Welcome Brave Richmond Loerke ~ I was thrilled to see the Loerkes welcomed their beautiful baby to the world!
One Word That Changed My Marriage ~ An inspiration to love my husband better.
Top Nine Reasons to Read Poetry ~ I read a lot of poetry when I was young, even keeping a copy journal, but over the years I slowly trailed off. I haven’t read poetry in a long time. This post inspired me to pick it up again.
An Open Letter from Introverts ~ I’m borderline on the introversion/extroversion scale. I relate to some of these points, and I see loved ones in others. And honestly, that “if we’re friends, it’s because you clawed your way in” thing? I would not be married today if I had not declared that I was going to MAKE Andy talk to me. The rare times he spoke he was intelligent and funny, but I mean those times were RARE. So I set a goal to get him to talk to me. Be careful what you wish for, friends. 😉
Shauna Niequist’s Book Recommendations for Writers ~ My TBR just keeps growing and growing…
That Great Day When We Were Set Free ~ I love this! I have been feeling weighed down by all our stuff. It is pointless, a burden that causes me stress. I’m looking forward to decluttering as we move through the renovation/moving process these next many months. And by decluttering, I mean cleaning out ALL of the things.
