"These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."
And so it is, that I give this award to the following eight, some know of me, some don't know I exist. But do know this: I find inspiration in their words, works and spirit.
Marching On! Eloquent and inspiring, his words never cease to amaze me. Love of family, God & country are evident. Loyal and gentle, he's my dear brother.
I Have To Say...that Randi has a gentle heart. Generous and refreshingly honest, I get my dose of goodness from this sweet and dear, friend.
Gator World. My, my, my, the sarcasm, the wit! Her mother, Mindy, is royalty, which makes her an heir-apparent. It's apparent that she has a lovely, wicked streak of humor!
Donna Randall's Blog is sooooo Donna Randall. She makes me laugh...it's as if I'm sitting in her living room carrying on a conversation with a 20-something year-old young woman. Not a worry in the world, just kickin' back and lovin' life!
Soule Mama. So relaxing and ethereal. When you visit, it's as if she's pulled a chair alongside her favorite rocker in front of the fireplace, rocking and watching the children. Lovely.
The Pioneer Woman. This blog has won numerous awards for her writing and wit. She's awesome! A wonderful site and she has the BEST giveaways, ever! But don't enter the giveaways, you have better things to do with your time!
A Giveaway A Day. How does she do it? And keep everything straight? I don't know! I am amazed...and she even took the time and sent me some links on how to do some bloggy pimpin'. Isn't that nice?!
Kitchen Scrapbook. This lovely lady is a Mennonite and she blogs! How cute is that? And her latest recipe is Shoo-Fly Pie. I've always wondered what exactly that is... her photo is darling! I'm totally fascinated with her.
Keep up the wonderful writing, dear friends. You continue to inspire me, to push me. I started all this craziness alone, but now have a great network of friends. Thank you!
