"Most" Posts of 2013 -- A Link Up!





I learned about this lovely link-up a couple of weeks ago (from Rosie!) and finally had the time to sit down and put it together! Linking up with the beautiful Sarah at amongstlovelythings.com.

My Post with the most clicks is a dead-heat right now between Gregory Hughes - 3/1/2013 and one particular Quick Takes Post (#61). It happens to be one of my posts where I marvel at the growth in the relationships I have with my children. The Quick Takes is one click ahead as I type...so, I guess that's the Post with the Most...Clicks.

I guess it's fine for the QT post to win the Post with the Most...Clicks, because Gregory's post is the Post with the Most...Comments.

The post with the best picture was difficult for me to decide. I wanted to go the route of continuing to remember Gregory (with my post, Real -- and I really do love the picture in there), but it's important, too, to show and note that our family continued to LIVE and LOVE together this year, so I think the best pictures can be found either on this Monday Mumbles - 61 post or this post titled An Update in Pictures. Many of those ended up on our Christmas card. :)

A couple of the posts I have already shared have been the hardest (ever!!) to write. But this Quick Takes post where I shared a very personal discernment was difficult for a variety of reasons. First, it is personal. Second, I wanted so badly for our discernment to come out differently...I wanted God to say "Yes" to another baby for us, but it just wasn't in the cards. But learning to see the joy in the result of that personal discernment has been comforting.

My personal favorite post is this one where I shared a book that my sweet Helen wrote for me: Helen Told Me She Wrote A Book. I think it's my favorite because it reminds me of how sweet my children can be. It is something I can go and read when I've been feeling like I'm not the best mom sometimes. Our children love us so sweetly and unconditionally. They deserve the same from us. And this post recharges me in that respect when I read it.

So, there you go. My Posts with the Most!

Be sure to go and check out all the other great posts bloggers shared! (I plan to spend some time on my New Year's Day off work doing just that!)

Thank you, Sarah, for hosting such a fun link-up!

  1. Thanks for sharing your posts with the most! I think the 7QT on your discernment of trying for more children was really great. I encounter a good bit of NFP talk even in my mostly pre-parent circles, but I try to remind myself that only the couple can determine what is right for them. That was a fantastic example of the process I hope every couple goes through (although I acknowledge that many don't).
