Meet Lori, from Choosing Wisdom!

LoriI discovered Wandering Wednesday’s just as I celebrated my one year blog birthday. Being so new to the blogging community this connection with Michele and Confessions of Parenting has been perfect!
I don’t know if we have any empty nesters out there – but it has been a hard transition for me! As our kids slowly started leaving home, I ventured back into working outside our home for the first time in 25 years. For three years I was an executive assistant for an insurance brokerage firm.  I loved my time there, but soon felt drawn back to my first love – writing.

Choosing Wisdom was born in August of 2016. It started as a vehicle to develop a portfolio and has evolved into a place where I share many of the lessons life has taught me and how they all point to wisdom if I let them. I have a regular column called Wednesday’s Wisdom where my readers share their stories and how they’ve grown from them. I’m always looking for  contributors and so if you’re ever looking to branch out let me know!
I’m looking forward to spending Wednesday’s with you this month as we wander through all of the great posts this linkup has to offer!
Lori is on  Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn.  Her blog is ChoosingWisdom.org, and she can also be found contributing on Evolve! and Midday Mornings.

We are so excited to share “Our Favorite Things” With you this week! All my favorite picks will be shared on my Facebook page and I will also pin it to Pinterest! So here we go!

My Favorite Pick!

My favorite post that was shared this week was A Promise to his Stepchildren by Kristina Kuzmic.  It touched my heart and brought happy tears to my eyes.  On her wedding day, her husband read a book that he wrote to her children, whom he loved very much. He goes into how much he loves them and his intention to become apart of their family.  It’s sweet, loving, and brings the warm fuzzies!


 Lori’s Favorite!

My favorite link from last week was by Karen Gauvreau of Lightly Frayed. Her post “Why Parenting Teenagers is Exactly Like Having a Mammogram” had me laughing so hard I was crying.  Her words hit their mark! Parenting teens is probably one of the most painfully vulnerable things I’ve done in my life.  The balance is delicate yet brutal. I loved her humor in stating the obvious, and her use of an actual procedure we can all relate to – well it was brilliant! 


The Viewers Favorite!

The favorite this week by the viewers was Photos to Conquer? Start with Organization by Jennifer Wise nat Live Grow Give!  Thanks for voting!
