I'm feeling uplifted today  

Posted by mindyluwho

Upon bestowing this award to me PJ said thus, "I am so glad to be able to read her blog, but I am most fortunate to know her. She is my husbands older sister (NOT OLD:), she is the heart of his side of the family. She leads by example, she loves genuinely. I love her voice and the way she talks, it is uniquely Mindy. If you know her, I bet you agree. So, I give the You Lift me Up award to my Mindyluwho!"

Thank you PJ and I just have to say that if I am the heart of the family, PJ is the funny bone! She cracks us up with her hilarious stories and quirky ways. She makes the mundane interesting and keeps us all laughing. She's a treasure and I think I'll keep her!

When I saw this award I knew exactly who to give it to. If you haven't read Calamity Jane, you must. She lifts me up...out of bed, off the couch, from the table! She blogs about her experience of losing 70 pounds and how she used the gospel and prayer to get her there. What I love about her is that although she predominately shares her motivation for losing weight, the principles she shares can be applied to all of life and the choices we make in our quest to become better people all around. I find myself thinking of her blogs in a lot of situations I find myself in throughout the day. So Calamity Jane, I give the You Lift Me Up award to you.

I can see why PJ gave this award to you and you gave it to Calamity Jane. I look forward to more uplifting from the both of you. :-)

I am grinning from ear to ear. I am so new at this blog world, I really never looked at blogs until this past July. I love all the positive strokes and big hearts everyone seems to have. Mindyluwho, you are one who encourages me to write more, so I thank you. You made my day with this award! Thanks

I knew that I'd like you as soon as I saw roses on your background! :)

How fun that you got this award. What a compliment to be the "heart" of the family! I agree that Calamity Jane is an inspiration to us all!

Thanks for visiting my blog! :D

How incredibly sweet! I haven't gotten a chance to read everything on your blog yet, but what I have read is very thought-provoking and uplifting!

It was kind of you to give Calamity Jane an award. She deserves it. She has helped me to change my life.

As the little sister of Mindyluwho, I agree with Pj's remarks about her being the heart of the family and I also agree with Mindyluwho's remark about Pj being the funny bone. We are from a very profound family that I am pleased to be the tail end of. (Does that make me the tailbone?) I have always admired my sister. She is definately the one who brings us all together and keeps us going. I love you, I love you, I love you.
