It has been a very busy week around here. We threw my Mother in Law a 90th Birthday party last Saturday. My step daughter was in charge of getting it put together but come to find out a week before the party she hadn’t got anything done so I spent all week working on decorations, centerpieces, and I made and decorated a whole sheet cake in addition to some of the food I had to cook. So needless to say it has been a very busy week. The party turned out great though. A lot of people brought their instruments and so they had a pretty good jam.
So now I am hoping to get my house ready for Christmas and start on stuff for Christmas.

 Last Week’s Top Clicked Post!

The Empty Seat. When our holidays aren’t merry, unique challenges exist for everyone in the home. There is hope. We will see them again and that’s worth celebrating. #emptyseat #HeartbreakHoliday #Christmasloss #memory

Susan started this very poignant post on her blogged and continued it on Julie’s blog, Unmasking the Mess. Susan shares how  to help those who have suffered a terrible loss and have an empty seat at their tables in their lives. Her tips are wonderful and  straightforward. One even made me cry. I hope you will check out this important post today.

My Favorite Post of the Week

How to Be the Light in a Dark World

Be the light. This is the phrase I often use to inspire my kids each morning, before I send them off to school. "Go. Be the light." It's a simple concept really, and yet all-encompassing. But what does it truly mean? How can we be the light to the world around us? Click to read, as I unpack this timely message, and reveal what it means to be the light in a dark world.

This post simply touched me to the core. My favorite paragraphs:

“We don’t need to shout out Jesus loves you from a megaphone, in order to shine the light of Christ into the lives of others.

In fact, please DON’T do that!

Sometimes- MOST TIMES- all it takes is a kind word, a thoughtful act, or a simple smile, to make someone’s day.”

Rachel shares a poignant example of how to be the light to others that will melt your heart.

As we move through the Holiday season, I am so inspired now to a light to others. Will you join me? Please read this article.
