My favorite words are family, food, and fun. If you are a parent of a child who is ill, those words may not be the first to come to mind, and I understand that everyday can not be a Disney day. However, I have a few fellow authors who have blogs who can put family, food, and fun back into your vocabulary. Check out these new blogs for stress free ideas for feeding your family, enjoying budget entertainment, and having a good old fashion fun time no matter what your situation is. Some of the blog entries may provide just that few moments of stress free down time for those parents whose lives center around chemo, blood counts, pain, and the not so fun part of having kids with illnesses. Remind yourselves that it is OK to smile, laugh, and enjoy the little things in life that make you happy and encourage your child to do the same. Having a good laugh or spending a little time playing a game or reading a book or (blog) can lower stress levels, provide distraction, and improve your overall mental outlook. So, pull up to the keyboard and cruise on over to the sites listed for a wide variety of topics by very talented authors. Enjoy!
