Imagine my surprise when
Susan J. Reinhardt's post
announced that I had won the Kreative Blogger Award.
What can I say? I am honored and humbled and just plain excited! Susan's blog, in my opinion, is a must read for writers. She shares great writing tips, interviews, and book reviews all while working to connect and encourage writers. It's a hard act to follow, but I aim to be a blessing like she is. Thank you, Susan! You are a treasure.
Now I have the privilege of passing this wonderful award on to these blogging friends.
Carol Alexander of Everything Home With Carol is one creative blogger. A Christian wife, mother, and homeschool mom, Carol shares everything from project and homemaking ideas to little gems that make me think. She's a blessing, and a special friend in the blog world.
Everyday I Walk with You features Raymonde Newman's thoughts about this and that and life in the United Kingdom. It's always a treat to stop by her blog. When I visit, it's like I get to sit and have a cup of tea with her! Raymonde is a kindred spirit from across the pond, and a brave soul who has tackled one of my writing prompts.
Kathleen of Sassy Granny is one of my newer friends whose blog is always worth reading. I love her posts, full of stories and heartfelt, thought provoking insight. She makes me laugh, and more importantly, reflect on where my perspective needs to be.
Another new friend, Carla Gade of Writing to Distraction, has a lovely blog full of wonderful goodies. Carla wants us to come and "share the journey as we converse about the writing life." Indeed we do, and it is interesting, challenging, and a lot of fun.
Katt's Comments is penned by Kathryn Neff Perry. It doesn't take long to see that Kathryn has a servant's heart. She shares about writing, daily life, and the spiritual truths that connect them. It's always a pleasure to stop at her blog.
The Kreative Blogger Award encourages winners to share interesting facts about themselves. Bear with me; what I think is interesting may not appeal to you...but here goes.
I like chocolate. But if you read my blog, you know this already. Thought it was worth mentioning again, though. :)
I love hockey. Ice or roller, it matters not. My sons used to play both, so I was officially a hockey mom. I know quite a few rules and can name more professional hockey players than my husband.
When my sons played hockey in a local league, I considered volunteering as a referee. I decided against it because I don't skate very well. Kind of hard to referee while being concerned about falling down.
My daughter gave me the gift of being a swimming mom. She took lessons for years, so I went from one climate extreme - cold with hockey - to the other - warm with swimming. You'd think I'd remember not to wear a turtleneck during winter's lesson days. Sitting in the bleachers by the pool with a million percent humidity watching her swim was fun, except for the turtleneck part.
I love to blog. I started in early 2009 because I wanted to say I had 'blogging experience'. Well, I've gained a little of that and a whole lot more. I've met wonderful new friends (that would be you) and have been abundantly blessed getting to know you all. You are treasured friends, each one, who have enriched my life. Thank you!
What about you? Tell us some interesting, but little known facts about you and your life. We're all ears!
Blessings and hugs:)
