There is all sorts of wonderfulness on the internet, and I thought I would share some great #sendsomehappy post-related ideas and my favourite blog posts that I’ve read lately.
This is a sweet way to decorate a box if you’re sending a gift in the post for Mother’s Day- or any other occasion. Simple but effective.
If you’re the crafty type- make your own envelopes with this tutorial! I could never imagine doing this, but I did have some big scrapbook paper and really liked the results- fun, unique envelopes.
This is a fun way to dress up a gift card if you’re sending one as a present for mother’s day.
And if you’re not into crafty-letter writing, but you want to keep organised, remember who you’ve sent letters to with this handy printable.
There are more ideas on our Pinterest board– remember if you’re sharing on social media to join in with the #sendsomehappy hashtag!
I loved this post about letting go of the self-imposed to do list and sitting and soaking up your life, where it is right now. I am guilty of feeling I’m not getting enough ‘done’, but I know looking back I won’t remember the details of what I did or didn’t do- it will be the memories and people that count.
Katie wrote a great post about being a work-at-home mother. I too find it really helpful to my mothering to have something else ticking over in the background. She really emphasises that different things work for different people. It’s so important to understand and support people whichever way they come at life, motherhood, and work.
Some thoughts from Sarah about instagram and identity really resonated with me the other day- I had read this post before but it was a great refresh.
Jessi’s instagram, and blog are a daily encouragment to me- this honest post about messy motherhood really helped me to blow away some of the cobwebs for me about mothering. There can be a perception that everyone else is managing to do it all, well, all of the time, and so these confessions just make me feel more human. The truth is that we are all broken, and we all do life differently, and we all need Jesus.
And finally, this wonderful post about feeling invisible is another post I would have written at various points, if I could find the words. It’s somewhat comforting when someone else writes exactly what is/ has been in your heart.
