This Little Light

We’ve got a special featured blogger who finds a way to “embrace the joy in everyday.” What a simple, yet important message. Whether she is writing about her adventures with “The Boy” or sharing grief resources for those who are dealing with loss, Michelle writes a beautiful blog.

Please give a big SITS Girl welcome to Michelle of This Little Light.

I’m just a girl, a wife, a mom, and a blogger who hopes to remind others of the sweet little joys of life that can so easily be overlooked. I survived the tragedy of my daughters coming into the world 4 months too soon, and hope that at “this little light,” my readers will see that their light can still shine, despite whatever heartbreaks they’ve endured. TLL is where I share my laughs, my joys (ode to “The Boy” and coffee!), my victories, my heartbreaks…and I hope it’s a place where others might be inspired!

These are worth the click:
Simple Life

Nothing Left But Everything

Five Year Old Sleepover

Time to “roll call” by leaving a short comment below and then head on over to Michelle’s place!


  1. Grief is a tough topic for anyone. Losing a baby is also another tough area. But just b/c something is tough to talk about doesn’t mean we shouldn’t! HAPPY SITS DAY! Since my miscarriage (1st trimester) I’ve learned that it’s extremely common, which made me feel better, but I was so unaware.

    Have a PRETTY day!

  27. I read your post “Nothing left but everything” and was so touched by it. I lost our first child to miscarriage, and I thought the pain of it would swallow me whole. I don’t believe that “time heals all wounds” because almost four years later, that loss still leaves me gasping for breath and tearing up. But I do believe that in time, God replaces some of the grief with grace. The grace to keep breathing. The grace to find acceptance if not understanding. The grace to laugh again.

    Your post reminded me of all that I felt and often still feel. Thank you for sharing.
