While gone on my weekend family adventure, I checked my blog only to discover I had been nominated for the neno award, by my good blog buddy, Christy at The Secret Life of An American Wife and Mom. I get excited and I am truly humbled every time someone chooses to pass an award my way. It is affirmation that either my family and our crazy adventures are normal or just plain entertaining. Either way, I'm happy. I started this blog at the request of my sister so that we would have another way to keep in touch. Little did I know that it would be my daily journal of feelings as well as my link to new friendships. I don't know about everyone else but the ability to write things down and getting feelings out in the open is very healing and helps this mom deal with her day to day busy life, no matter what each day holds.
I was told that the neno award is given to those who love blogging, who enjoy making new friendships and who spend their time encouraging others. Thank you.
To pick people to pass this award on to...well it is hard, for there are so many who encourage me everyday with their sweet comments. I am truly thankful for everyone who stops by to laugh as well as cry with me each day. I know that those I have chosen have probably already been given this award by someone else, but I truly just wanted to say thanks for hanging in there through the ups and downs with me. I enjoy each of your blogs for so many different reasons.
Here are a few encouragers who brighten my day every day with sweet words...
Christy - right back at you my friend!!!
Sharon - Joy in the Truth
Hope - My Hope is in the Lord
Elaine - Peace for the Journey
Lauren - Walk by Faith
Michelle - Psalm 104:24
Mimi -He & Me +3
Nan - Mom's the Word
Erica - Scottsville
Kat - Heart2Heart
To others that stop by to encourage and say hello from time to time, "THANKS!!!" This award is for you too. I would also like to say thanks to my sister and my dad, who both have great blogs themselves and who encourage me everyday to write what I know.
I am so thankful for all my bloggy buddies!!!
