“I’m walking on sunshine, whoa-whoa, and don’t it feel good!” 1985 Katrina & the Waves
I’m a bit overwhelmed with the generosity of my friends Melis @ http://iamnotshe.wordpress.com and Jen@http://steponacrack.wordpress.com for bestowing on me the Sunshine and Liebster awards. It’s amazing how you can get to know people you’ve never met and become part of a mutual support and encourager through the blogosphere. I am thankful to learn from both women who have much to share of perseverance and triumph. Please check out their blogs.
There are rules to these awards and, well, I’ll be adapting them a bit. Did I hear someone say control? I’d like to deny it but every time I think of my rationale it still sounds like control. I’ll own it.
The first rule of both is to give thanks to those passing the award on to you and link back. That is my favorite part and done.
The next part for the Sunshine award is to tell something about yourself in the way of favorites and the Liebster asks you to just share the love. Here’s where I’m going to twist it up some. I’ll share some of my favorite things and blogs so you’re getting the combo deal here. Did someone say “super-size”? No problem, ‘have it your way’ ;)
Favorite place to spend time doing nothing: the beach
Favorite new hobby: taking pictures and blogging
Favorite place to take pictures: the beach
Favorite place to live if I could live anywhere: near the beach (sensing a theme?)
Other favorites include blue, the number 14, family, grace, God, friends, music, arts, the beach. :D
I do have some favorite blogs I read regularly and will gladly share them with you.
Heidi at Good Life No Alcohol. She writes honestly and helpfully about recovery. Excellent blog.
Debbie at Two Minutes of Grace is a master with words and does it most gracefully, of course.
My Mother’s Brain: love in the time of dementia posts sporadically but I have found it to be touching and comforting as I go through the same journey as Beatriz
It’s Not Really About Me is a new one to me but I appreciate the simplicity of Judi’s life and her deep faith.
Yes, this is just a handful but most have been mentioned by others and deservedly so. All of these blogs have taught me, comforted me, encouraged me and uplifted me. I am thankful to God for using others to speak into my life.
