Carrie blessed me with this award. Here is the text that does with the award:
“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.”
I met Carrie years ago on AOL's Catholic Moms message board. Another friend from that board who has a blog is Janette. I love reading about her "kids" -- those she bore, her grandkids and the kids to whom she reaches out every day at school We need more teachers like her. Teresa is another longtime internet buddy. Please keep her in your prayers. Elena and I debated on AOL for years, sometimes on the same side; sometimes on opposite sides, but her blog has let me see another side of her--and let me meet her beautiful family. Judy is another longtime buddy from AOL. She a living example of how God can turn lemons into lemonade. Carrie gave this award to most of my fellow bloggers from that board, so I'm going to reach out to some fellow book bloggers. Kristi follows my blog, so I have to count her as a friend, right? Wendi is one of the First Wildcard bloggers. I find I generally agree with her reviews, and she nice too! I have to recognize Bookish Ruth--she shares my name and love of books. Finally, I'll recognize Michele, a college friend, who like me is dealing with a toddler and a teenager at the same time. She also makes beautiful quilts.
Take a look at these blogs, maybe you'll find a new friend. God bless!
