Oh Happy Day!  

Posted by mindyluwho


I got an award! My very first. And I’m going to do what my mother always said to do when people compliment you…

“Say Thank You”

Thank you Joey! She was the first person outside of my family to comment on my blog, and hers was the first blog outside of my family that I commented on, so I think it’s cool that she’s the first person to give me an award.

“Smile”

:) :) :) :) :)


and


“Shut up”!


Ok, that’s the hard one. I just have to say that I’m honored to know that I make someone smile. Joey makes me smile because she writes about her day to day life with her children which I love reading about. I don’t blog about my day to day because I’ve never been able to remember at the end of the day what I did. She inspires me to be a better mom.


The creator of the award had this to say -

"The thing that I love most about blogging is that I learn so much about a person just by reading their blog. I have met MANY wonderful people with wonderful stories to tell, and I am grateful every day for each person that I have the pleasure of crossing paths in life with. I wanted to create something special for the people who have inspired me through their blogging; the stories they tell, and the lives they lead with grace and dignity. I visit their blogs for inspiration and encouragement...Please grab your badge and wear it (with a smile) proudly, and pass it on because you inspire and encourage me---thank you!"


So now to pass it on…I’m the kind of person who feels really bad if I don’t include everyone (that’s why my Tweenager had NINTEEN 12 year old girls over for her last birthday…), but I’m going to restrain myself and limit this to one person.


The award goes to…


Betsy –my sister whom I admire because she is a mom to three and is working full time to put her husband through school. She doesn’t get to blog very much because she is so busy, but I love it when she does as she makes me laugh and think about life a little more out of the box, which is out of my comfort zone! So here you go Betsy Bo Betsy…Love you!


(By the way, her name is Elizabeth, so you will want to refer to her as that, but she will always be Betsy to me.)

Thank you Mindy. That really felt nice. I'm glad somebody reads my nonsense occasionally. Oh, come see who I passed it to...

It's good to hear that you like reading about our day to day life. I wonder sometimes if I am just boring everyone to tears, so THANK YOU for your kind words. It made my day. :-)

And thanks for adding me to your blogroll. I was just thinking earlier that I want to add your blog and a few others to mine...I must add that to my mile long list of things to do!
