My article on the 5 stages of a child’s life was featured in my first participation in the Carnival of Family Life – Christmas Edition hosted by JHS in Colloquium. (Amongst other things the name means “an informal meeting for the exchange of views”.)
It took me a while to go through the articles I liked, getting sidetracked by interesting links along the way. You know what I mean.
I particularly enjoyed:-
Money Making Mamas’ take on giving the gift that will give back to you. She has chronicled the life story of her grandfather, spending time and energy typing out his story as he talked about his life. Not only did she learn so much more about her granddad, but has also made sure that her children and grandchildren will not lose out on this priceless resource of a generational story. She urges us to think about doing this for the seniors in our families.
David B. Bohl of Slow Down Fast’s story of Luck: Helping each other and paying it forward. He has highlighted a great saying of an ancient Greek, “If we always helped each other, no one will need luck.”
Edith Yeung of Dream Think Act asking us “Would you do what you are planning to do today, should today be the last day of your life?”. Questions like this really make us think deep about the issues that form our central core.
One of The Digerati Life’s guest writers, Mikael, wrote about the 3 great money lessons he learnt from his old man. Mikael has clearly thought deeply about the 3 lessons as he also provides us the extrapolations that make the lessons so relevant to his and our current lives.
True to its title, the Carnival also features some stories on family humor.
You just have to read Mommin It Up’s Dirty Phonics on the Bathroom Wall.
These are but, just some of the great articles available. Pop over and have a look for yourself.
Thank you, JHS for the warm welcome you have given me.
My best wishes for a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year to you, your family, your readers and all your friends.
