Time To Think!

Well, I had a big surprise this evening when I clicked around to some of my favorite blogs. It seems that my good friend, Early Bird, was awarded the Thinking Blogger Award. And she truly deserves it! And, she has awarded it to me, along with four others!

The object of the award is, if you receive it, you then award 5 other bloggers that "make you think"... and I just happened to be one of the honored five that she picked! She is such a sweetheart and I am truly honored that she thought of me! I am fairly new to blogland and just getting started in this network of friends. I've met so many wonderful, interesting, sweet people and I am loathe to only pick five of you! In my heart, you all deserve to be awarded, as you all "make me think" and add much to my life!

Since I am limited to five, for now, I pick:

A new friend from Scotland, Portraitofpeter. He will always make you think when you visit his blog! He is very fond of music and poetry and I always enjoy his posts!

You will also like Tracey, if you haven't visited her blog. She leads a very interesting life on her farm and has many posts concerning her sheep and the wild Mustang horses that she has adopted.

Mikki Jo and her husband have built a cabin across the street from their permanent home to use as a 'getaway'. In the coming weeks we will be enjoying learning about her adventures in occasional 'pioneer living'--making us 'think' about what our life would be like without our own modern conveniences.

Beemoosie is always working on a new quilting project and letting us in on her adventures in 4-H leadership projects, as well as sharing her words of wisdom!

Finally, one of the newest friends that I've found is at Yahweh's Retreat. She lives on Hatteras Island with her sons. She not only shares her everyday island life, giving us a glimpse of the uniqueness of the area, she also shares many special posts on life in general, reminding us that God is always with us whatever we may be going through.

Now, the five of you--reward your blogging friends that 'make you think'!

Thanks so much to ALL my blogging friends for the care and friendship that you have shown to me in these past three, going on four months. It seems I've just met you and at the same time, have known you for a long time! Thanks for all that you contribute to my day--every day!

"This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it." Psalm 118:24


  1. I'm so proud to call you a good blogging friend!
    You said it all! Very well as always!
    Congratulations to all of your five bloggers!
