My friend, Beth, passed this Blog Award to me this week - so nice! Thank you, Beth! Beth has become a wonderful friend over the last year - we attend the same church, and have become fast friends through our church book group (aka the Snazzy Ladies!). We've shared laughs, frustrations, life stories, and sometimes tears... and we look forward to it every week! Beth has been on a wonderful journey of faith and self-discovery over the past year and you can read about it at Walk a Mile. Thanks for sharing your life with us, Beth!
All blog awards come with rules so here they are:
1) Grab the Award and link the person whom you got the award from.
2) Pass the award to different bloggers whom you think are deserving of this award.
3) Write a post about the award and there you’ll link the person who gave the award to you and those people who you’d like to pass the award.
4) Continue your passion in writing because your hard work will always be appreciated.
And now for those that I am passing the award onto... Drum roll, please!
Giraffe Dreams is written by my friend, Carol. She is also one of the "Snazzy Ladies" from our book group at church. She is full of energy, full of compassion, and full of giggles! Her blog is a wonderful representation of who she is - sharing her beautiful quilts and homemade toys, her love of her family, and her desire to make a difference in the world - all the while being real about the things she's working on in her own life and what or who she depends on to get her through.
The Early Family Life is a blog written by another friend, Melissa (yet, another "Snazzy Lady!). Her blogs focuses on the joys of family in the midst of challenges. Her strength, faith, and positive outlook on life is enough to inspire any of us in our daily lives. She's recently started listing her "smileys" almost everyday - so fun to read about the ways her kids and husband make her smile! You can't help but smile along with her.
Pause. One of the most uplifting, positive, and spiritually filling blogs I read! This blog is written by Rev. Sally Howell Johnson from Hennepin United Methodist Church in Minneapolis. I look forward to updates - and often use them as my daily devotions (or lunch time devotions)... They make me smile, they make me think, they make me recognize God in the little things.
The Little Collection is a blog written by Andrea, a new friend via the blogging world. Her blog makes me smile with beautiful quotes, wonderful insights, and the occasional goofiness that I love! A beautiful spirit!
