Saturday Suggestions - Part 1

I am trying something new. Since I usually don't post on weekends I thought I would give you all some great reads written by other bloggers. Every Saturday I will pick three posts that stand out in my mind that I have read in the past week. They can be posts that make me laugh, cry, or just strike a chord with me. Please feel free to visit the links and leave comments.

I have read a ton of fabulous posts but these are the three that stick out in my mind.

Beck with Everything I Know About Being Married
Beck is a genius. If you don't already read her you'd better start immediately.

Octamom with Monday Musing...Is Eight Enough?...
This woman is so inspiring. This was the first post of hers I've ever read and it spoke right to my heart. I am truly grateful that I read this post.

Imbeingheldhostage with The Course Of True Love...
What can I say? I love this woman. I feel a kinship with her. I just KNOW we'd be good friends in real life if we weren't separated by oceans.
This post made me all misty eyed with thoughts of innocence, youth, growing up, and true love. I just loved this post.

Now go! Read! Enjoy! Comment! :)


Beck said...

Aw, thanks!
I'm going to make a point of reading those other posts later today, too.

Kelly said...

This is a great idea! It's a good way to find some other great blogs out there.

Thank you. It's always fun to be introduced to new blogs. I already LOVE Beck, and I'll look forward to getting to know the others.

Robyn said...

I loved the true love post. I'll have to check out the others.

I love Jeri! I'm so glad you gave her a shout out. She wants me to mail myself to Blighty in a APO box to her house. I wonder how expensive I'd be?

Lindsay said...

Um, thanks a lot for introducint me to Octamom. I of course had to check out the link...which led me all the way back to 2006 in her blog. Thanks. My dh thanks you, too. :-) But really, she does rock.

Oh, you are so sweet! Here I was pouting at the hubby and trying to prove I didn't have a problem blogging-- the day you say such nice things about me.

wow. You have no idea what you just did to my day. Thank you--
and FAB idea. I am checking your recommendations now. Thank you, K!

At the risk of looking fairly vain...

Some people have said that they really enjoyed reading this particular post of mine. The best part begins when I tell the tale of our middle child when she was young.

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
