Oh my stars, I got a blog award.

The Lemonade Award

Which recognizes blogs that reveal great attitude and/or gratitude.

My sweet accountability sister and fellow blogger skoots1mom honored me with an award.
I have to tell you that there are not many people who you can completely count on in this life. I know that with out reservation that the friendship we share is one that is built on trust, love and a shared belief in our Heavenly Father. She is one of my dearest friends and has on many occasions been the strength that has held me up when I simply could not bear up under the weight of some very dark valleys.

In an effort to be obedient (well maybe halfway obedient, like skoots1mom I am only going to honor a few of my blogging friends) I am following the directions and passing this award on to several bloggers that I read that for me bring so many different things to my life, not to mention the specified great attitude of gratitude.

Sassy Granny has a unique wit and depth, you may read about history, science, her daily life or just what’s on her mind. I enjoy stopping by for my daily dose of this Sassy Granny. I can now claim my gray hair and unattractive neck as “credentials”. Now I call that a great attitude. Love ya Sassy Granny

http://walkingfaithfully.blogspot.com/: I just love her blog, what can I say the chicken stories and the puppy stories and in general her outlook on life are a breath of fresh air. I feel a kindred spirit with her desire to live simple and frugally. I love her tips and her attitude of appreciation for the simple things of life.

http://meyersonthehood.blogspot.com/: I love her sense of humor, her perspective, her attitude. I find her post to be filled with a sharp wit as well as a true heartfelt caring for those she loves.

Just Ruthie: I love reading about her memories of China, her perspective and her attitude of gratitude, oh and she just became a great granny!!!

I could go on and on and on. Yet I simply do not have time to nominate all of you as I have a Christmas family gathering at my house tomorrow and a company Christmas party tonight and my bathrooms need to be cleaned blab la bla bla…….life happenes while your are posting to your blog.

I have found this exploration into self expression with the written word through blogging one of my most rewarding experiences I have done in a very long time.
It began on a whim and now nearly a year later I have found that it is a source of comfort, friendship, strength, a laugh when it is needed most as well as a sense of connection to something much bigger than myself.
So now here are the rules for this award:

• Nominate at least 10 blogs which show great Attitude and/or Gratitude!
• Be sure to link to your nominees within your post.
• Let them know that they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
• Share the love and link to this post to the person from whom you received your award.
