Highlighted Posts From Posts From The Hearts 17th April 2017

Our fifteenth 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:

Finally Holding My Daughter, a part of the wonderful Made Up Milestones Series by Ann at Rainbows Are Too Beautiful particularly moved me. How many of us whilst we are pregnant dream of holding our child for the first time and relish those early months of snuggles. These post really brings home what the reality is for many families of children with Sensory Processing Disorder. It’s a post that will certainly make lots of mums feel less alone.

Are Young Parents Bad Parents? By Autumn’s Mummy is a fantastic post that needs to be read by a lot of people. All too often people judge young mums, both for their decision to have a child and for their parenting. This post quite rightly refutes that judgement, and announced to the world that parenting skills are not age dependent.

The Last Time by Daydreamer Mum is a post that can’t fail to give other women in abusive relationships hope. Kelly’s posts are always incredibly honest, I admire how she never shies away from the truth – no matter how hard the truth is, and this post is no exception.

Hello and welcome to Posts From The Heart, hosted by myself and fellow blogger Becci over at The UnNatural Mother.

Highlighted Posts From Posts From The Heart 10th April 2017

Our fourteenth 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 Day I Said Yes by Mom of Two Little Girls was a post I love. I say ‘No’ far too often in my day to day life, so I am looking forward to having a day this week to see if I can say ‘Yes’ a little more often. I hoping to see the same kind of results that Mom of Two Little Girls mentions here. Why not take a read of her post and see if you fancy giving it a go too?

Maybe I’m Doing Something Right by High Heels and Fairy Tales is a beautiful piece about a very intuitive little girl. Sometimes our children seem to know the moments we need them the most, and do just the right thing at the right time. I guarantee this post will move you, it is well worth a read.

Not Step, Just Family by To Aufinity And Beyond is a post that really struck a chord with me on a personal level. Finding someone who treats your children as their own is a privilege, when your child has special needs that privilege is manifested ten fold. It takes a special kind of person. But when you find that person it creates a family. This post needs to be read.

Highlighted Posts From Posts From The Heart 3rd April 2017

Our thirteenth week of #PostsFromTheHeart contained another wonderful set of fantastic posts. They were a wonderful selection, which genuinely moved me. In fact among them were some of my favourite ever posts.

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:

Behind The Smiles Of Our Autism Family by To Aufinity and Beyond is without doubt one of the most beautiful posts I have ever read. It is so easy as a parent to look at all those things we don’t do ands to forget all those things we do accomplish. This post really highlights just how much a simple ‘well done’ can really mean.

To The Family Who Ignored Us At The Zoo by Mum Making Lemonade is quite simply a post that needs to be shared. It can be hard sometimes when we meet families who are different to our own to find the right words, but this post is a heartfelt plea to do just that. We have a responsibility- each of us – to teach our children what is right. Kindness, as my Grandma used to say, costs nothing.

Mental Health After Pregnancy – Am I Getting Better? By Naptime Natter is an incredibly grave and inspirational post. It is honest, raw and hopeful. A post that cannot help but bring hope to other women suffering from postnatal depression, that things will get better.
