It's the week before Thanksgiving--here's this week's collection of posts to encourage, inspire and get you (and those wild kids!) ready for a great week of connection, gratitude and love.
Are you in a panic thinking about what kind of calamities can happen this week when your children are sitting around the same Thanksgiving table as grownups with long histories with Miss Manners? Check out this good advice from the granddaughter of none other than Miss Emily Post herself.
Need a little perspective? Read about the adventures of Maggie Doyne, a young woman in her twenties who has taken the title Supersister super seriously as she invests her life and energy in being oh-so-sisterly to children at risk in Nepal. You'll be inspired to keep your kids close and look around for more ways to enrich the lives of others around you. You can do something amazing in the blink of an eye.
This humble confession from mom extraordinaire Jen Zug is perfect reading for anyone wondering which battles to pick as we move full force into the holiday season. Sometimes the best defense is offense when it comes to averting kid-like disasters.
And here's a chance to lend a sister a hand. Shannon from Rocks in My Dryer is asking her readers to join her in writing for the Mother Letter Project. A certain anonymous husband is asking people to write letters of encouragement to his wife about mothering, an idea that came to him after the family decided less is more this holiday season. What could be a better surprise than that?
