Who - me?
Wow - I was so blessed this morning to see that Toni from special K family bestowed upon me the Thinking Blogger Award - my very first blogging award ever!!! And it means especially alot to me because my friend Toni gave it to me. She made me laugh when she said "We are a weird combo, I think, but you DO make me think! Usually about the spiritual side of life! Thanks!!".
We probably are a weird combo but you know what? I think when we write we are exposing the deepest parts of us and there is just something about Toni's writing that connects with me. I see your heart Toni - and it's a good one! So while we do have our differences, I think we have many more similarities- such as a passion for our families and our country. I just love your open and honest approach to life - you are who you are and I like that! And you are married to a military man and how can you NOT love a military family - you are doing an incredible thing for me and my family. And your sense of humor cracks me up! I need to laugh more and you definitely make me laugh! So thank you friend Toni - I really appreciate you!
So now it has become my duty to bestow this prestigious award to 5 blogs that make me think. Wow- only five. My choices are:
Becky of The Butler's Wife. She is a teacher and I love her approach to writing. She is intellectual without being stuffy - she very creatively weaves deeper meanings into ordinary happenings. That's my favorite type of writing!
Mayhem and Miracles is a new blog I am reading. I love her style. She uses lots of words and when I finish reading her posts I feel like I have just finished a satisfying conversation.
Ashleigh at Heart & Home is a young mom who inspires me! She has so much spiritual insight for such a young woman - she is the kind of mom I hope my daughters are when they have kids.
Jennifer at Jeneric Jeneralities is always a fun read with deep thoughts. I've been a lurker on her sight for a long time - she always has something going on!
And finally, Julie at A Day in the Life of a Preacher's Wife always has a theological thought that makes me think. And she is just so kind.
So ladies, here is what you need to do:
1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think,
2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme,
3. Optional: Proudly display the “Thinking Blogger Award” with a link to the post that you wrote. (here is an alternative silver version if gold doesn't fit your blog).
Well, I'm off to think some more!
