Whew, it’s been a whirlwind of a day and there are a million thoughts flying around in my head so I’d better keep it short for your sake ;). It’s Sunday and it’s time for some good reading and giving a shout out to some great writers again. One thing I noticed was that – at least for me, does anybody else feel the same? – there was a particular lot of more serious posts in the blog world that really got me thinking this past week. Definitely not a bad thing in my book so if you know of any more or have thoughts on those mentioned here: Let me know your opinion or share the links! There we go!
Enjoy your Sunday!
