Best in Blog - Monday Linky


I love it when I stumble over little snippets of truth. Words so crisp and perfectly phrased they zing right into your heart. I have a whole collection of them on Pinterest. Sayings that sum up truth deliciously.

This past week words have featured large in my world.
Words in articles that challenged me. Words with a counselor that strengthened me. Words from a preacher which encouraged me. Words are powerful things.

This week I shared some of my own words. Did you catch them?

Firstly I Went to See a Man About a Dog. A Black Dog, that is. The mongrel that has dogged my steps for over ten years. Thanks to some powerful words of truth, the fighter in me is back, ready to kick that mutt next time he growls at me.

Then I explained how I Don't Want to Miss a Thing. Childhood is fleeting. Life is busy. I am challenging myself to be more "present" with my kids.

While I'm at it a few helpful freebies for ya.
Due to popular request, I've added my printable chore and routine charts at the bottom of this post. You can customise them with your own routines etc in any photo editing programme, then print, laminate and magnet to the fridge.

While I was feeling helpful, I also updated my grabable social media buttons, adding in a bunch of new styles and added in pinterest and email buttons for each set. So go here and grab yourself some pretty buttons for your blog.
You're welcome.

The Best of You
We had double the entries for Best in Blog last week, thanks to my reminder email. {If you want to be included in my email reminder list, let me know}
Double the entries, double the reading.
So hard to pick my favourites.

I had to come back to this question: Which post(s) gave me goosebumps/made me sigh/laugh???

Here they are:
Cass has again made the list. Her post about why she is bored with blogging was a wonderful read. Especially since in the end she decided to give up "blogging" and start "writing" instead. Way to go Cass! Inspiring stuff.

Meghan from MNM's gave me goosebumps with her Badges of Motherhood post. Read it and be encouraged.

Remaliah shared her twin daughters' second birthday... and a video of the journey from 700grams to today. Oh my. Goosies. Tears. Wow.

And finally. Brigitte's post about Genitori made me laugh out loud. FOR AGES. When I finally got control of myself and kept scrolling down, I found myself literally sighing over her pictures.

 How to join in with my "Best in Blog" linky.
The "Best in Blog" Linky opens at 7am every Monday (NZ time*) and closes midnight Friday.
You don't have to write a special post, or take a photo on a theme or anything that requires extra work...
All you have to do is pick your favourite post from the past week (the one you are most proud of) and share it with us. I will feature my favourites on next week's Best in Blog.

Just one thing you need to do before you link up... Can you please dress your post with this pretty button I've made so your readers can find our linky too?

(Oh, and please leave us a comment telling us why you picked this one... even if it was because it was your only one, hahaha!)

*For some of you US readers, that will be sometime on Sunday!
