Friday favorites

This week has flown by. Two sick kids, each picked a different day to become from school, lots of school volunteerish stuff, i don’t know, just made the week zoom past me. It’s been a decent week,though. Even though I had a couple of sickies home, thankfully they didn’t stay too sick, and all is well.

Favorite things I read this week: aside from the craziness that has been my life this week, I had a chance to actually read some of my favorite blogs. I enjoy reading all types, parenty-type blogs, healthy living blogs, scrapbooking blogs. Funnily, this week I have a favorite from each.

Ryan’s blog is technically not a specific type, but I found him while he was blogging about his journey of losing weight and getting healthy. He now blogs about, well, whatever is on his mind. And his voice is fantastic. this week he wrote, Dear Pixar, Thank You, where he talks about his son’s connection to these awesome movies, and how it broke through the walls that Autism can put up between us and our children. It really struck a chord with me, it’s so similar to the experience I had with my son, Christopher and our love of all things Disney. And judging from the comments he received, it also hit home with many autism parents. Go read it.

Roni is a blogger who I found while searching for information when I first started Weight Watchers, almost four years ago. This week she posted about her weight loss “a-ha” moment. . As I’ve shared here, over the past almost for years I’ve lost almost 80 pounds. I still have about 20 to go to get to my “goal.” Roni talks about how trying to lose those last pounds is so much different now than it was when we first started losing weight, and how we need to appreciate and embrace those changes. Another smack in the head for me.

Becky Higgins, the genius behind Project Life, introduced us to her friend Claire, who suffered a life-changing injury. Claire already struggles with a developmental disability, and this accident has added greatly to their family’s stress. She is, thankfully, home from the hospital, but there are loads of things that need to be dealt with now. Becky has placed some ads on her blog, in order to help out the family.

Lastly, Sue wrote the most beautiful birthday letter to her oldest child. This one got me good. I just mention it here because I think everyone should read her writing. It gets me in the gut. Every.single.time.

I hope you’ll find something that is as inspirational to you as these bloggers have been to me. Now, on to enjoy the weekend!
