I’m going to take this opportunity to talk about the awards I’ve been given lately. When I first started blogging I never knew any of this ever happened, but have been blessed by realizing that other bloggers feel enough about my writing that they give these awards. I’m sure other bloggers might say the same as what I’m saying…..that blogging about the awards is in no way intended as a boastful thing that I’m doing. I do so because of the connection that I feel with others and their own stories that they share, and I want to acknowledge these wonderful people when they think in some way that my writing or commenting has encouraged or helped in some way…someone. I feel so affirmed! So thank you Anne for ‘Mrs. Sparkly’s Ten Commandments Award.’ Her site is http://mylifeuncutalmost.wordpress.com/about/ Because of the unusual title I researched to find out the meaning of it and found this on a site…
The “Mrs. Sparkly’s Ten Commandments Award” has to do with a woman of the same name, known for being very elegant and having high expectations, and who is committed to maintaining integrity, good manners and behavior, as well as a rich sense of humor. I like to think that perhaps I have some of those qualities to a degree and I know of many others who do also. Note… Even though much of what I write has a serious tone to it, I feel that I can and do have a humorous nature and appreciation of same.
The rules for this award are that you must answer the following ten questions and nominate ten blogs that you think deserve the award.
1. Describe yourself in seven words.
Christian, Trusting, Trustworthy, Loving, Curious, Nurturing, Friendly
2. What keeps you up at night?
