Thank you so much to all of you who continue to pray for me daily and send such encouraging emails to me. I know God will use all of these struggles to grow me and Skip. I also know that the last thing Satan wants is for Skip and I to be together serving the Lord in our new church. I pray that God is allowing this to happen to bring more glory and praise to Him in ways I could never fathom.
After the kids were sick of me today, I went around to get inspired and refreshed by all of you lovely ladies out there. What I found was inspiration, humor and two special awards that I had no idea I had received. One was from "N" at Mayhem and Miracles. The blogger reflection award has been going around for quite some time, but today it was for me. I'm sure she had no idea how much it blessed me, but I am smiling from ear to ear. This award is for "someone who is an encouragement, a source of love, someone who has impacted you in some way, and has been a godly example to you. " Thank you "N" for thinking of me, and I want you to know I feel the same way about you.
As I was going by one of my favorite sites, I realized that I had never read this post from Bev at Scratchin the Surface. I was so touched that she included me in her awards for "Nice Matters". Thank you Bev, and I know you think I look young on my photo, but believe my there are wrinkles everywhere. I'm almost 40 for goodness sakes.
With both of these awards, you are to find 5 people to pass the award on to. I am such a loyal, middle-child, hates to leave anyone out kind of person, that I just can't choose only 5 for each one. I love every blog I go to daily, and each one is special and unique. You know if I come by and comment regularly that I am touched by you and your blog. Besides, my daughter is kicking me off the computer right now so she can IM her Bff or whatever they call it. I am so out of the loop.
