Sharing the Blog Love Showcase
Welcome back to #SharingtheBlogLove and my weekly showcase post. I hope you have all had a lovely week! We have had such a busy week somehow with lots of birthday parties, a trip to the seaside, the cinema and Sealife Centre. In between all of that I have enjoyed reading your fantastic posts, and as always here are my four favourites…..
Life, Motherhood & Everything
This post, The fear and worry of parenthood , was one that I could really relate to. I have always been a naturally anxious person but since having the children my worries have gone through the roof! I found it so reassuring to know that others worry about the same things that I do, being a parent really is the most worrying, toughest job in the world!
Reflections from me
I have to confess, Mac is one of my favourite bloggers and every post she shares touches me on some level. This post, You can make a difference, was exactly what I needed to read right now. It can be very hard to focus on the negatives in the world as we face such worrying times with the war against terrorism, but Mac reminds us to look for the positives, the helpers, the fact that if we all stand together we can make a difference, and I truly love this post.
Daydreams of a Mum
This post, My children do not come from a broken home ,really resonated with me. When my first marriage ended after eleven years together, I was left a single Mum with a four year old son, and I felt as though I had failed. People are so quick to throw around the phrase, “Broken home” and for those who find themselves raising a child alone, it can be very hard to hear. I love how Kelly tells us that her home is not broken at all, infact it is fixed, and I relate to this whole heartedly.
This post, Would you let your child play with a plastic surgery app?
both saddened and horrified me in equal measures. It terrifies me that our children are being raised in a society which is obsessed with appearance and “perfection”, so much so that there are apps aimed at young children where they can perform virtual plastic surgery. The statistics in this post really shocked me and made me more intent than ever to raise my children to be confident and proud of the body they were born with.
Please do pop over and check out any of these posts that you have missed, show them a little love, spread a little happiness, and we hope to see you back here again next week!!
