Sunday Salon/Sunday Post – January Recap – Weekly Rewind – Mail Call

The Sunday

The Sunday Salon used to be a meme but was getting so huge it became unmanageable, so it is now a Facebook group that has become an informal week in review
gathering place for bloggers.

It is also a place to share our thoughts about things of a bookish nature.

SUNDAY POSTThe Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by
Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer
~ It’s a chance to share news~
A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

It just can’t be February already. January was cold and windy and flew right by.

My word for 2014 is
hopeThis week I lost a friend after her courageous cancer battle.
She died from the same type of cancer that took my dad in 1988.
I had hoped that after all this time a cure would be found that could have saved her.

Also this week I had an article published on BTS Book Reviews Blog that I was written to give people HOPE. It is basically a very condensed version of my life story of the last 13 years and how I came to be writing this blog today.  I hope you will check it out if you have time.

  1. Lori, I had no idea. You are amazing – to come through that with such courage and optimism and a joy in life that is evident in your posts. And now you’re doing the blog tours in addition to your review blog. What an inspiration you are!

    I love your January reads and look forward to reading a few of them myself! Have a great week, my friend.

    1. I also meant to convey my deepest sympathies on the death of your friend. I’m so sorry, and I’m sending you a big, warm virtual hug. Be good to yourself, and may you find comfort in the love of your family and friends.

  2. What an amazing and courageous journey! You obviously have a wonderfully positive attitude and do not give up. Definitely a must when facing so many obstacles and finding your way through them. Thanks for sharing…and keep hoping!

    Your books look good, as usual. Enjoy the new week. Here’s MY WEEKLY SUNDAY/MONDAY UPDATES

  3. Lori – You are amazing! I had no idea about any of that. Truly amazing!

    Of course you know all those cozies look great to me! Have a wonderful week!

  4. So sorry about your loss Lori. It seems that more and more everyday people are finding out they have this awful sickness. I pray everyday that they can come up with a cure for all of it.
