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!

Congrats! I enjoy your blog and think it is well deserved!
Have a super day!

Becky said...

Well, seems congratulations are in order for you. That is so fun! And I am absolutely humbled and thrilled that you find me worth a thought. Thanks for the wonderful award. Hmmm, now I have to think again :) I may just have to give it to everyone I read. But I know, that is not the rules.

Thanks so much Robin! And I also enjoy reading YOUR blog regularly too! May God bless and encourage you!

Becky said...

Robin, thank you so much for your comment today. I have written that book down on my list. I plan to do a lot of reading very soon. But that one I believe I will look for sooner.

Thanks so much. I really felt your compassion and appreciate it SO MUCH. Do you ever feel like your problems aren't really enough to burden your friends with? And yet you NEED them to pray for you because your problems are YOURS?? Well, that is where I am. I know it is nothing compared to others. But I am hurting with it and I thank you for seeing that. God bless you my friend!
