I am SO creating a Blog Award...Only if I knew how...

My new good blogging buddy Pam gave me this award last week:

From the creator of the award..."the thing that I love most about blogging is that I learn so much about a person just by reading their blog. I have met MANY wonderful people with wonderful stories to tell, and I am grateful every day for each person that I have the pleasure of crossing paths in life with. I wanted to create something special for the people who have inspired me through their blogging; the stories they tell, and the lives that they lead with grace and dignity. I visit their blogs for inspiration and encouragement...."



If you were to talk to my good friend Dorrie (who should TOTALLY start a blog), she wouldn't agree that I am inspiring right now. We talk on the phone everyday, and she says I need to cheer up. My problem? I am kind of stuck...I am in that really bad I am going on a big vacation in a month phase (I know, poor me, but seriously. I NEED a vacation). But more importantly, I am also stuck in between careers...in a career I want out of, waiting to finish school and get on with a career I really want into.



I am not a patient person, I don't like being stuck. I hate in-between stages...like when Audrey was trying to walk but she wasn't really and wanted us to walk her around the house all day holding her hands? Yea, I don't do well with in-between stages.



Anyways, my point in all this? Who knows, but I learn a ton and get a ton of inspiration from these bloggers....



Julie, my favorite NoVA person...seeing as I got the hell out of that state, she inspires me in that she is still there :). Hehe.



Life with Hannah and Lily...loss of her daughter, she blogs to help her through. I normally cry with every.single.post.



Lisa's Chaos...cancer, family, life. Talk about inspiring...



Sanity...two sets of twins (if that ain't inspiring, I don't know what else is...), hospitals, surgeries. More than an inspiration.



Carrisa Blog...I am pretty sure she doesn't read here, but she started the Biggest Loser Bloggers club...very inspiring and I can't wait for her and all the other participants to reach their goals...

Who isn't blogging nowadays. You can find all types of blogs from overseas soldier blog to fun knitting blogs. If you need information on blogs you can find it online.

Thank you for the award. I'm not all that inspiring - more like a dumbass with family ties to VA which keep us here! : )

Isn't Pam awesome??? It's so nice to receive and award... congrats to you!

Shari said...

I gave you the same award, AGAIN... Because you should know we really mean it and you are inspiring.

Pam said...

Gad you enjoy the reward. I hate the in-between stages of life as well. I am with you on that! Don't worry though...I still find you fun and interesting....even if you need to cheer up. That vacation is coming...hang in there! You should get a ticker to count down to your vacation...that always helps me get thorough the rough patches (I am already counting down the days of the school year)
