Hearts In San Francisco over at Guilty with an Explanation has given me an Excellent Blog award.
This is my first ever award and I am so thrilled that it came from Hearts. I discovered this blog on one of my rambles through the blogoshpere and I have been coming back for regular visits. Hearts’ blend of humor and intellect make her blog a wonderful read. She has the ability to take an ordinary situation and turn it into an extraordinary experience.
It is now my responsibility to pass on this award. It was hard for me to choose between my favorite blogs – I have at least two dozen bookmarked. As a way to narrow down my choices, I decided that I will give this award on to the people who currently live next to Hearts in my bookmark bar.
Molly at The Molly Bawn Chronicles.
Molly inspires me with her wisdom and grace. I rely on her to make me laugh out loud. Her life chronicle provides me with a template for my own life and shines a light to help me to see where I am going.
Shauna at Up In the Night.
Shauna reminds me not to take myself too seriously. Even situations that make her “blather like a nutcase” get turned into comical experiences that provide me with the inspirational view that is sometimes needed to keep putting one foot in front of the other. That, and the joy of being introduced to the incredible number of angels in Shauna's life, are what keep me coming back again and again.
Claudia at at On a Limb.
Claudia’s clean, clear writing informs and inspires. Her idea for practicing daily acts of kindness has changed my life, helping me to see that my glass really is half full – at least!
Carrie at Fully Caffeinated.
Carrie seamlessly blends humor and relevant information in a way that is readily accessible. Her Top Ten lists have inspired me and made me laugh. She allows me to walk in her shoes for a bit, to look at things from another point of view, which has led me to a greater understanding of my own life.
Michelle at Full Soul Ahead.
Michelle is one of the most well informed people I know. I count on her to keep me abreast of the latest news. Her writing about her life and her family are filled with love and hope. Her dedication to making a difference is proof that one person is all that is needed to start a revolution. Michelle constantly teaches me how to make lemonade out of lemons.
Karen at Cherrio Road.
Karen is amazing. Visiting her blog gives me peace and shows me that I am not alone in my struggles. Karen words penetrate my skin and burrow deep into my soul. Her writing is beautiful and simple and real.
Thank you to each of you for making a difference.
