Our eighteenth week of #PostsFromTheHeart contained another wonderful set of fantastic posts. They were a wonderful selection, which genuinely moved me.
Once again we had both some incredibly joyful, and some utter heartbreakers among our posts. It was a priveledge to read every one of them. It was lovely to see so many of our regular linkers return, and also to see lots of new writers join us.
There is no obligation at all to comment on this post but we would love it if you could sprinkle some extra love on one of our Highlighted Posts. You the linkers are what make this Linky such a pleasure to host and we want to make sure you all get as much out of it as possible.
This week’s highlighted posts were once again incredibly difficult to choose, but I think you will all agree that they are more than deserving of their place:
The Things I Wish I Had Known Before I Lost My Baby by Five Little Doves had me in tears. I cannot imagine what Laura and many women like her have gone through. But nor can I imagine the added pain that must come from lack of information. I am certain that this incredibly brave post will help many many families, and hopefully spare them a little pain.
Please, Can We Stop Arguing About How We Feed Our Babies? By Naptime Natter was a post that particularly resonated with me. If I’ve learnt one thing this year, it’s that life doesn’t always work out as we intended it – and no matter how our baby is fed, it is the fact that they are fed that’s important. As this post so rightly says it is time we started supporting each other, no matter what our personal feeding choices are.
Sometimes I’m The Mum Who… by Scandi Mummy is a beautifully written piece which I defy any mum not to relate to. It is a beautifully honest look at the many facets of motherhood, the joyful and the challenging, it is both heartwarming and refreshingly real.
