Good morning and welcome to Coffee and Conversation #51!
Well, July is quickly flying by, isn’t it? Hope you’re enjoying your summer, because back-to-school is fast approaching! Which reminds me to give you a heads up, as we’re working on a great back-to-school round up that we’ll be presenting as part of our back-to-school week in August. We’re hoping to highlight content from some of the blogs that appear here regularly, so we’re confident you won’t be disappointed. Please let us know if there’s any information you’re particularly looking for, and we’ll do our best to get it to you 🙂
Oh, and September is gonna be another awesome month…I can hardly wait!! Candy and I are working on a secret project that we are just DYING to tell you about…and we will…come September 1! It’s been some work and time in the making, but we think it’s gonna be worth it to make your experience on our site much more enjoyable and satisfying.
(And also my daughter Lauren is getting married in September – or did I tell you that already? You’ll have to forgive me if I mention it a time or two between now and then… I’m SO very excited!!!! Can you tell??)
Similar to my brain, which feels like it’s darting around in a million directions some days, this week’s features represent quite a variety of topics! I hope you enjoy this assortment of thoughts; just a tiny slice of of the content that is so generously shared here each week…
I remember when we first “went off” TV…and discovered we could still live! Years later, hard as we try to place limits and set controls, computer and phone screens, iPods, iPads, game controls and the like take up, sadly, way too much of our day. I appreciated Jennifer’s honest description of the successes and struggles of her family’s “week off.”
A long title, but is there anyone out there who couldn’t relate to this fear at SOME point? As we’re beginning to prepare for the new school year, I know the thought “How are we gonna PAY for all this?” has crept into my mind a time or two… Kathryn gives us a gentle and friendly reminder that no matter what it looks like, He is able.
While I don’t suffer from fibromyalgia, I sometimes have difficulty sleeping when I’m stressed out or overwhelmed. My husband, on the other hand, frequently suffering from arthritis and joint and leg pain, often has sleep issues. The doctors can’t seem to find anything wrong, and we’re “just” attributing it to aging, but I’m hoping some of these tips will be able to give him some relief…
The longer you blog, the longer you realize that, similar to link party etiquette, there’s also a protocol to relating to and working with other blogs. Guess that makes sense, if you think about it. Rosilind, all the way from Bosnia, rarely disappoints. She presents a well-researched and interesting post here, and you’ll find yet another link party, too!! 🙂
Thank you for your inspiration! Now I hope you ladies will grab a button to
brag about display on your site! 😉
