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!

    Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to You! Wishing you a wonderful Birthday. Thanks for being such a gracious hostess at the Create With Joy Inspire Me Monday Blog Hop. I knew when I was writing my post (#292) that this would be a great place to post it. I don’t get a chance to write an essay that often, but 4 Powerful Reasons Journal Writing is Good for the Soul is one. Hope you enjoy. I share the love by spreading the word about those posts I enjoy on my social media outlets. Haven’t heard from many of the bloggers. Wonder why that is. Nancy A @
