Here’s What’s Inspiring Me…

Widowed Blog Hop

Courage - Widowed Blog Hop

Today I’d like to share a very special resource
For those in all life stages
Who have survived the loss of their spouse and want to
Connect with others who are on this challenging journey.

It’s The Widowed Blog Hop and it meets the
1st Wednesday of Every Month on
Author Samantha Light-Gallagher’s website.

Even if you have not experienced this type of loss,
I invite you to be a blessing by
Offering a word of encouragement and
Sharing this resource with your circle of friends.

You never know who is hurting during the holiday season
And could benefit from this gift of love!

Inspire Me Monday #49 – Week Of December 10, 2012

Inspire Me Monday

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!
Judy Palmer
