Sharing the Joy: A Call for Help


The Sharing the Joy event has got off to a rocky start due to some circumstances in my personal life.  My sons and I are moving in with my mom this weekend and it's a big move.  The honest truth is that my husband and I are separating.  It's a tough time of year for this, but I'm trying to keep my spirits up.  I look to Christmas to help me with that, but this move is putting a damper on my posting for Sharing the Joy so....

I need help with some guest posts.  Spread the word to your friends and/or submit one yourself.  Authors, bloggers, non-bloggers alike...all will be welcome.  Write about anything Christmas related:  recipes, family traditions/memories, stories, top ten lists, etc., etc.  All and any help will be greatly appreciated.

If you would like to help, please send me an email at truebookaddict AT gmail DOT com

Always in spirit....

  2. Sorry to hear about your tough time. I hope you are able to find some peace this holiday season through all of the things that you've come to love about this time of year.I wouldn't mind writing a post about the magic of Christmas when it comes to children...or something of that such! Let me know if you'd be interested..and I'll see what I can come up with. www.inflammationof.blogspot.com

  4. Oh, Michelle....this is very sad news...I'm very sorry about this. I sure hope and pray that there is some possibility of reconciliation. I hate to hear this type of news, since I have always been a hopeless romantic, and would like to believe that life imitates art...of course, it doesn't always do so. But you say that you and your husband are separating, not divorcing. Maybe, after some time apart, you will be able to reconcile. But then, I don't know exactly what your situation is. I'm just hoping for the best for you, as well as your boys. Perhaps a separation IS indeed the best for you all. I've been through a divorce myself, and, in my case, there was absolutely NO possibility of reconciliation. I'm now happily remarried, though. So, keep your chin up! I will pray for you and your family, as well as your husband. May all of you find the light at the end of what may at this time seem like a very long, dark tunnel! I will definitely try to come up with a post to help out! Lots of love to you & your family!!!!! BIG HUGS!!!!! : )

  6. Thinking of you as you go through this hard time. May your children help bring the joy of the season to you even in the midst of sadness and confusion. And may their love and the love of your mother help you through.
