Positive start, plus GRAND Social No. 224 link party for grandparents

Positive start

I've pretty much had it up to here with all the disrespect and hatefulness permeating our country, our world in so many ways, in so many distressing situations.

I'm no Pollyanna but I really could go for a little something uplifting, something positive to start my week.

You too?

How about this:


It's a start anyway.

Cheers to holding onto that smidgen of positivity, compassion, and goodness throughout your day — and through this evening's debate as well as the days of dissension and aggression sure to follow.

GRAND Social No. 224

Welcome to this week's GRAND Social! Your participation is pretty positive, pretty uplifting in itself. Thank you for being here!

grand social link party

How it works:

  • All grandparent bloggers are invited to add a link. You don't have to blog about grandparenting, just be a grandparent who blogs.
  • Grandparents who do not blog (or want to share something other than their own post) are welcome to add links to other posts grandparent readers may be interested in.
  • To link up a post, copy the direct URL to the specific post — new or old — that you want to share, not the link to the blog or website home page. Then click the blue button below marked "Add your link" and follow the directions.
  • I reserve the right to remove posts I feel are inappropriate. (Which hasn't happened yet, but I feel obligated to note that, just in case.)
  • Those who add links to the GRAND Social link party will be sent a weekly reminder when the party goes live. If you prefer to be removed from that email list, feel free to do so (and you'll still be more than welcome to join the party any time).
  • If adding your own post, including a mention such as This post linked to the GRAND Social to your linked posts is appreciated. Or, you can post the GRAND Social button anywhere on your page using the following code:
  • The GRAND Social linky accepts posts through Wednesday evening, so please come back to see those added after your first visit.
  • If you're not a linker, you have the pleasure of being a reader. Those sharing a link would be honored to have you visit, read and, if so moved, leave a comment even if just "Hey, stopping by from the GRAND Social." Bloggers who link are encouraged to visit and comment on the links of other bloggers, as well.
