May 1 #LinkYourLife Roundup

What a week! I’m sorry to get this up so late, but better late than never. Tomorrow will be the third #LinkYourLife event, so I am happy to squeak this one out under the wire.

@allisonmaruska’s writing story started with a truck. 

@ShareenM honors her husband’s unrelenting support through chronic illness.

@UlaWrites composed a beautiful reflection on impermanence and grief.

@Ruebi shared “Hold your breath and count to ten.” 

@rksteg linked an important post on escaping emotionally abusive relationships.

My share (@shawnamawna) was my inclusion in ART SAVES LIVES INTERNATIONAL.

Some of you know I was in a minor car accident last week but managed to come away with whiplash. I’ve been unable to type on my computer, and my phone use is really limited due to inflammation. For that reason, Twitter handles aren’t linked. Writers, please feel free to link your Twitter handles and websites below so readers can find and follow you! And if I missed anyone, please let me know! I will get you added asap!

As #LinkYourLife grows, I will put up a Friday post so you can add your links to the comments field as well. Thank you for last week’s great mix!

    • Thank you, Allison! I was rear-ended, and not even very hard. I was turned when it happened though, looking for oncoming traffic. I guess that’s all it takes!

      I have lots more head and neck mobility since Friday, so I am hopeful that in a week or two I’ll be back to my usual antics. 🙂
