Bloggy Bling

Dear reader, if you haven't noticed, the blogging community seems to be some of the most generous group of people ever. Joanna from Bugs in My Teeth has graciously awarded me this:

Fuschia from Living in the Land of Pink describes blogging this way: "Blogging is a charming connection we make with others who may or may not be close in proximity, but are close in heart. Friendships are made through blogging that we should, and must choose to, cultivate so that they may propagate."

Thanks so much Joanna. Now it's my turn to return the favor. I thought it would be difficult to find eight bloggy friends to give this award to. Turns out, it was really easy:

Devin @ Mom's Happy Handful - With six children, she has my admiration. And she finds the funniest cartoons and the best pictures. Check out her sidebar, I am so not kidding.

Overwhelmed With Joy
- She and her husband have adopted and fostered children. It takes special people to open their homes to children who they may only get to love and care for for a short time. Plus she sponsors Pay It Forward Book Exchange. How great is that?

Fisher of Men @ Long Lost Poetry - New to blogging, but I know he has my back even if he is 1,000 miles away. Literally.

Jen -@ Jen and Carter's Lives . . . - She's strong, resilient and till trusting in The Father when life just isn't fair.

The Diaper Diaries - This lady is fun-ny. And has great ideas about being frugal. Her tweets are entertaining too.

Jenny @ Jenny on the Spot - This lady is so fun to read. She's silly, quirky, goofy and not afraid to let her inner child come out to play. And a faithful commenter. Plus she runs triathlons, dear reader, TRIATHLONS!

texasholly @ June Cleaver Nirvana - She makes me laugh on a regular basis. Her animated series are not to be missed. Her Potlucks give are way better than anything you'd find at a church social. I link to her often b/c she's said it so much better and funnier than I ever could.

Amanda @ OhAmanda - She has a heart for God and it shows up regularly in her posts. Plus, she's mother of two (one is 12 days old!) and posts on at least two blogs. She's a fellow LOST enthusiast - that alone would be enough to earn this award!

So, there it is. If you're on my list, please let me know if you decide to pass this award along to your bloggy friends. I'd love to read your lists too.


  1. You are super sweet to think of me. I really appreciate the award and my head is SO BIG after those kind words. Thanks sooooo much!

  2. Thank you for the award, that was very sweet of you to think of me. I don't think of myself as a strong person but others as well have told me that. I appreciate the compliment. Thank you as well for being an encourager along the way in the journey that we have been faced with. God is so good.

  7. Hey you sweet, sweetheart! I have been so shamefully out fo the loop... yet you still love me :) I am touched - you are so sweet.... Thank you so much Jubilee :) I am so honored. I will properly accept this award - with the gift of time...
