It’s been a little while since I shared the love! Don’t think that is because nothing inspired me…quite the opposite. Reading other blogs is what pulls me through the days and lifts me up. It’s just been a bit busy around here with the holidays…then post holidays…then life. I’m sure you understand!
If you aren’t aware of what I mean by sharing the love, it’s a way I can recognize other bloggers who have inspired me throughout the week. I read so many blogs and I love it. Some posts just hit me at the right time, in the right way…and those posts are what I share with you so that hopefully, you’ll be blessed as well.
So, without much further ado, these sweet friends of mine have certainly blessed my week with their words and their hearts behind the words…

When You Feel Like a Terrible Mother – The Felicity Bee
Oh, this one will make you go through all kinds of emotions. I just wanted to reach out and give Erika a big squeeze through the computer. I cried right along with her, as I know how her mama heart must have felt. But Erika…she is a special one. She has the gift of inspiring others even when her own heart is hurting. She looks to the One who truly knows her worth and that is a beautiful thing. If you are a mother and have ever doubted your worth, you will be so blessed to read her words.
