There are a couple of blogs I've been enjoying lately. The first one is called The Four of Us. It's written by a young Christian mother, Julia McAllister, who has had a lot to deal with. It's definitely worth a read. Her December 9th post titled The "Pause" Moment is a beautiful reflection on some of the things that have happened in her family's life.
Another blog I love is Forever in First, by Tammy McMorrow. Yes, she's the same Tammy that sings on the Christmas CD, Tidings, that I've shared with you. Tammy has been a first grade teacher for 18 years. Her love of teaching shines through in her posts. She shares creative ideas that have worked with her first graders, as well as some sweet and humorous moments that have happened. Scroll down and read her post called Inspired to RACK and see the list of activities she has her students do. The point is to teach them how it feels to show kindness without expecting anything in return.
I hope these two ladies inspire you as much as they have inspired me!
