My First Blog AwardBy
I was recently discovered by Catherine @ Our Village Is A Little Different and she nominated me for the Stylish Blogger Award.
It matters not to me that this is not a one-of-a-kind award. I’m just excited that she picked ME! to receive it. “Thank you, Catherine. I’m honored.” In my enthusiasm to accept this, I neglected to read the small print. It never crossed my mind that I would have to give up chocolate for a year…
Fortunately, I don’t have to, but there are a few simple rules ~
- Thank and link back to the person who nominated you for this award.
- Share 7 things about yourself.
- Select 15 recently discovered, great bloggers, to receive this award.
- Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award.
God never whispered in my ear, as a child nor as a teenager, and said, “I want you to have 11 children.” I wouldn’t give up or trade even one of them, but… if He had told me ahead of time, I’d probably have run the opposite direction, sure that this was the first mistake He’d ever made. I still feel ill-equipped, but I am so, very blessed.
If you tell me something in strict confidence, you can count on me holding it in the strictest confidence. “Treat others the way you want to be treated.” I don’t hang my dirty laundry on the line; so, I’m certainly not going to hang out yours.
I would downsize, pack up everybody, and move into a motor home to travel the country – in a heartbeat or at least in 60 days. It’s a mentality… only the back yard would change. All of the truly important things would stay the same. God, Family and Home. Faith, Hope & Love. All I need is a wealthy sponsor.
What wonderful discoveries!
