Thoughts from Elizabeth Gilbert, plus GRAND Social No. 138 link party for grandparents

Thoughts from Elizabeth Gilbert

As the new year is still new, I wanted to share with you some fabulous thoughts from author Elizabeth Gilbert, words of wisdom — and an accompanying graphic — that Ms. Gilbert published on her Facebook page as dawn broke on 2015:

Perfectly stated, don't you think? Hope does spring eternal — especially at the start of a brand-new year.

If you don't yet follow Elizabeth Gilbert (author of Eat, Pray, Love, The Signature of All Things and more) on Facebook, consider doing so. She shares similar inspiration there each and every day. 

GRAND Social No. 138 link party

Welcome to the very first GRAND Social link party of 2015! Cheers to sharing posts and supporting the work of our fellow grandparents online!

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.
  • 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 your blog's home page. Then click the blue button below marked "Add your link" and follow the directions.
  • You can add up to three posts, but no duplicates, contests, giveaways, or Etsy sites, please.
  • Adding 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:
<a rel="nofollow" href="/" target="blank"><img src="" alt="Grandma’" width="125" height="125" /></a>
  • 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 blogger, 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.
