Three people honored me with this award!! I am almost speechless.......... ok, just almost. An amazing and huge thank you Paula Rodriguez, Baili and Foodie Girl! You women are such an inspiration to me.
The rules for this award are that I am supposed to tell 7 things others don't know about myself and I am supposed to pass this on to 7 other bloggers.
1. I grew up in a house full of women and thought men were strange! Really, I thought there wasn't much use for them (until I hit teens that is). People would say "oh poor thing with no father". I thought "men are worthless and smelly, who needs them?!" When I was in kindergarten this trauma propagated this thought in my mind : a little boy with green 11's between his nares and oral orifice used to always say to me "hey baby lets smooch". I was so horrified by the green snot visualization that I have not forgotten the goofy kid to this day! His memory still haunts me. I now have a great husband and 3 fabulous sons and don't entertain that thought any more ;-)
2. I was afraid to try ketchup until I was 14.
3. In front of my entire 4th grade class, I fainted at the sight of my own blood being drawn when we were on a field trip to the hospital (and now I am an emergency room nurse).
4. I am fearful of crafts. Crafts really do creep me out!
5. My grandmother made me carry a brief case to grade school so I would look studious. It was very embarrassing. I finally got to retire the horrid case when a big 6th grade delinquent kid slashed it with his pocket knife.
6. I constructed elaborate lies to one of the kids in school about having my own arcade room. She couldn't wait to come and visit me and was rather disappointed to find out that I only had a lousy mini pack man game.
7. I was known as "The Mad Reader" in grade school because I could not quit reading (ever). I read from the time I got up in the morning, to night (with a flash light under the covers). I read on the school bus. I hid books under my text books so I could read during classes. I took my books every where I went! I read lots of Dana Girls, Judy Bolton type mystery books. Now I don't dare try to read because I know I will neglect something else to finish a good novel.
Here's My Seven Beautiful Bloggers :
1. Blessed Mom's Simple Home
Marcia's home is lovely. Her style is impressive. She is sweet, kind and has a beautiful, virtuous spirit.
2. A Deliberate Life
Chris is such an incredible inspiration to me. She reminds me so much of myself. She puts a lot of heart and soul into her blog and she is faithful to those she calls "friends".
3. Walking on Sunshine
Lois is an army wife. Her husband, "The Colonel", just left after Christmas to go overseas for a year. Her blog always inspires me. She introduced me to finding out who Irena Sendler was, now a huge inspiration to me. I loved learning about her contributions so much that I had to buy the movie and share about it to my whole church. Lois's blog enriches others and changes peoples lives for the better.
4. A Day in the Life of...
Caroline has a neat blog. She lives far away, but her heart is big. I think I'd get a long good with her if we lived on the same continent.
5. Fangmans Fun Follies
Toni has a great blog. She loves her kids boatloads! She is always doing neat stuff with them and blogging about it.
Has a lovely blog. She has a lot of depth. Her words are not always a lot, but there is a lot in her words.
He's the inspiration for this post! Yep, he's my husband and I'm very proud of him.
