I've been honored!

Have I ever told you how much I love blogging?

Have I ever told you how much I enjoy meeting new people??

Have I ever told you that blogging has helped me meet lots of new people!?!?

Dude, I'm killing two birds with one stone here. Just to be clear...not that I condone bird-killing...bird-watching, yes, bird-killing, no way. Glad we cleared that up.

I have quite a few bloggy buddies...people who keep coming back to read my nonsense stories, and I'm so glad they do!

And just like in anything you do, it's really nice to be noticed. To be appreciated. To have your ego inflated be praised for bringing a little 'Goodness' to someone's day.

Several of my sweet blogging friends have honored me with awards. What they didn't know when they gave them to me was that it would take me several years weeks to post about them. I think they're good enough friends to forgive...

My first award came from Sara. She is a super sweet wife and mother of three little darlings, who I met by clicking on a post title over to the right there under the Blogher ad. The day I met her, I had posted about a blog design giveaway...she entered and won it!! Oh, and one other really neat part of it all...she used to live where I am...and I will probably get to meet her soon!!

Sara, thanks for showing me some love with this award!!

I want to give this award to JMB Mommy @ His Grace is Enough Today. She is sharing the love, folks. The most important love...the love of Jesus. Her daughter recently accepted Christ and it was such a sweet post! Go show this mommy some love!

My next award came from Jody. I wish I could remember how I found Jody...or how she found me, whatever the case may be...but such is blogging. You just find people you enjoy and you hang on for the ride. She and her daughter are the master minds behind the Good Mail group I'm in...really sweet ladies!! Thanks, Jody!! I appreciate the recognition!

And actually, I got a double-dose of this one when a very new reader passed it to me. Sammi over at Little Ladybugs found me and found my little blog worthy of an award. Thank you Sammi...I'm looking forward to getting to know you!!

I want to bestow this award on Elaine @ The Miss Elaine-ous Life. I love the way Elaine uses her sense of humor in each post...she always seems to find the 'funny'. She is so witty and entertaining...check her out for yourself.

Last, but certainly not least, is an award I received from Mama Mia. Mia and I are still getting to know one another. We share a few bloggy buddies and we've started visiting each other. Mia is a tell-it-like-it-is homeschoolin' mama...and I really enjoy her blog. Apparently, the feeling is mutual. Thank you, Mia! I'm blushing!

I'm passing this award over to Beth @ A Mom's Life. She shares a great variety of stories...her kids give her the best material! I thoroughly enjoy her blog and so will you. Please go see her!
Happy Thursday!

Awe, look at you!!!!! You are so loved by Blog World!

I'm like you on taking forever to post awards. And then you have to nominate other ppl and you're thinking.. "Will they be flattered or annoyed because of the pressure to post it?"

You need a WHOLE NEW BLOG just to post your awards!! :)

Look at all that bloggy bling - I need to go put my shades on...ha!

I've got some bling too that I need to post about....Hope my friends are all good enough to understand too (since they're the same as yours, I'm sure they will *smile*)

Good job!!

Look at you ROCK ON with those awards! :) Congratulations!

Elaine A. said...

Wow, that's a lot of awards!! Thank you SO much for mine and for the nice things you said. My heart is full today... Really, you made it an extra special day(especially since I am "trapped" in the house with a 15-month old with pink eye and a 4 yr old who is "bored!") : )
