Sharing some love

Here it is Friday again. Being Friday I get to share with you my favorite posts of the week.   Last week I tried very hard to find a way to include Comment Luv on my blog to allow all readers to see what amazing material you all write.  But alas, there is no way to do so with the free WordPress  platform.  So this is the next best way I can think of to share favorite posts from each week.   Hope you enjoy this weeks collection.

This weeks favorite posts is a mixed bag so read on:

  • Creating jobs by buying American made this holiday season.

    • Thank you. That is my youngest grand daughter shopping at a holiday store that has become a favorite destination since my children were little. They have this wonderful display of at least 30 trees decorated in different styles. None of us really ever buys much, but the little ones love seeing the trees.


  1. Hi Lois…thanks for the links to more great blogs. It’s nice to find each other out here in the blogsphere! I happen to be EXTREMELY grateful for all the connections I’ve made on the internet and you and your blog are definitely one of them….and yeah, this fits into the 30-Day Gratitude Challenge I have going on my blog this month! Thanks for inspiring me!–Kathy


    • Hi Kathy, I’m glad you found some inspiration from the links this week. I too am Extremely grateful for the connections I’ve made, I so wish I could meet some of the wonderful people in real life. I was just thinking of your gratitude challenge and wondered if you had given up as I haven’t received any of your quotes in a few days.
