This and that 11/23/15

See those little hands? Those little hands (which belong to my youngest, Jared) will be 17 years old in just one week. Unbelievable. I took this picture back in 2009 during our family's annual pumpkin farm trip.

The ladies over at girltalk are currently sharing a blog series on emotions. Are emotions good or bad? Do I stifle them or just let it all out? This is such an important topic for us as women to deal with and to teach our children. It's also a timely one because, let's face it, as much as we all love the holiday season, it can also be stressful and emotional. I hope you'll take a look. And if you're a blog reader, girltalk is one worth following.

I saw this on Twitter the other day and loved it so much I asked for the source.

Turns out, it's from a new book by Jon Bloom that Desiring God is sharing for free (e-book versions). The book is titled, Don't Follow Your Heart. Sounds like it might be a nice complement to the GirlTalk blog series, eh? I've added it to my reading stack.

And if this is the year you're adding an e-reader to your toolbag, Amazon has some great deals on several Kindle styles through November 30th. Reading paper books is still my favorite way of reading, but I do enjoy my the Paperwhite that I've swiped from my hubby as a way to read free books, as well for reading in bed (it's backlit!). (Speaking of Amazon, if you're not an Amazon Prime member, this is a great season to join. Try it free for thirty days -- great for fast, free shipping on Christmas gifts -- using this link: Try Amazon Prime 30-Day Free Trial.)

Thanksgiving Day will mark two months since we left Georgia to head to our new adventure in Virginia. In light of both of those events,  I wanted to share this (from my new-to-me chalkboard wall, which is a whole lot of fun):

 Happy Thanksgiving!
