Posts Just For You- This Week at ActiveRain-December 13 to December 19, 2020

 

Just as everything in life changes, I’ve decided to make some changes to my weekly post. 

While I hope to continue to highlight posts that give me that lightbulb moment during the week, I’m not going to commit myself to one post per day. 

 

I learn something new every day at ActiveRain! With this series, I try to highlight posts that gave me that lightbulb moment. It could be something techie, something about Real Estate or the other professions that I never knew, about a place, or about a person. Or, it could be a post that made me sit up and take notice! 

 

December 13:  Ed Silva    Not Enough space to Take the Team Photo

Ed’s photo is a prime example of how we’re all adapting to 2020. 

 

Chris Ann Cleland    Being a Good Neighbor

I loved reading about Chris Ann’s neighborhood and her neighbors. It’s something many of us would love to live in. 

 

December 14:  Denise Lones     Protect your Peace

What a great reminder from Denise that it is up to us to protect ourselves from the people and situations that will disturb our peace.  

 

December 15:  Ron and Alexandra Seigel    An Interactive Branding Moment: Your Take On This Brand Please!

I hope you’ll take a moment to give the Seigels your take on the brand and it may give you some insight into your own brand. 

 

Debe Maxwell What would YOU do?

One of my favorite television shows has been What Would You Do and this post reminds me of it. It's an interesting read...what would you do???

 

December 16:  Paula McDonald Ph.D.    Christmas Miracles Still Exist

This is a post we all need to read. Go on...it will lift your spirits!!!!

 

Susan Emo The Year Buffets Died-Another 2020 Casualty

I love a good buffet and I cannot imagine how they're working through health and safety concerns. What's going on in your area?

 

 

December 17: Jeanette Chasworth Changing her coffee pot changed her life.

Please welcome Jeanette to ActiveRain! Very inspirational and a great first post.

 

December 17: Myrl Jeffcoat A Normal Day in the Midst of Un-Normal Times

I've always loved reading about Myrl's time spent with her grandchildren...cooking for them and trips with them. Normalcy. This post had hope in it.

 

Anna Banana Kruchten An Island of Contentment

It's interesting how so often one post will lead another member to other thoughts on the subject. Both speak to what we've experienced this year. I relate to Anna's thoughts about not feeling like you should be going somewhere.

 

December 19: Tai DeSa Living with a Baby Who is Going to Die at Birth.

It seems like yesterday when I read Tai's post about Creed and I had never been so moved to tears by any other post. I hope you'll welcome Tai back and see what he shares with us!

Kathy Streib - I made cookies and sent to my sons, and I also made some to give to my neighbors. I don't eat sweets, so didn't enjoy them personally but I had a great time baking them.

Brian England I was in such a hurry and I also thought that for the rest of the year if anyone sees this, he might want them to see him sans Santa. 

Tammy Lankford, you are very welcome!!!

Jeff Dowler, CRS hope that you had a wonderful weekend!!!!  I'm off to look for more great posts.
