I realized recently that I've been hoarding blog posts lately. Keeping them to myself. Reading, savoring, delighting in them, but not sharing.
And these need to be shared.
So, grab a cup of tea, curl up by a fire, and enjoy some of my favorite posts from recent weeks.
14 wonderful words with no English equivalent :: The Week. Yes! As someone who loves words and can't stand when I can't pronounce them, this one was tricky, but I loved it.
25 reasons we're taking our kids around the world :: Entre Family Travels. I'm fascinated by this family. They are taking their four YOUNG kids around the world in a year. I'm following their progress (they just started in January), and it's so fun to travel vicariously with them.
17 Parenting Lessons from Downton Abbey :: Huffington Post. Because I just couldn't resist.
5 Things Every Daughter Needs to Hear from Her Dad :: Daniel Darling. *tears*
A Weak Mother is a Good Mother :: Desiring God blog. Oh why couldn't I have read this when my girls were younger?
A Letter to My Children :: Clover Lane. Yep. This pretty much covers it. Beautifully.
Raising a Pure Son in a Sex-Crazed World :: We Are THAT Family. Awesome, awesome post for moms of boys.
The Good News: This is Only the Beginning :: Christy Purifoy. This is a new blog to me, but one I have already fallen in love with. In this post, I got such a new perspective when she writes: "But here is the Good News: it is finished. Revelation is simply the Cross from the point of view of heaven." Yes! Love that.
And finally, True Beauty :: Privet and Holly. My friend, Suzanne. Always so full of wisdom, that one. I think I need to read this every day for a month.
There. That should keep you going for a while. I realized as I wrote this list that there is an abundance of parenting posts. Sorry if that's not your thing--it's kind of where I'm sitting right now.
Enjoy your weekend!
