Each person should judge his own actions and not compare himself with others. Then he can be proud for what he himself has done. Galatians 6:4

I am Loved.. truly Loved... but even more so I am Blessed....

I got an award... and I LOVE awards.. LOVE THEM!! ( and I still have another to post and haven't yet...memo to self... post it!!)....

Kori over at My Life as a CFers Wife gave me this award.. and truly what can I say... Her blog inspires me... Her blog some days brings me to tears.. back to reality.. back to how much I should never complain about petty things in life. She is a STRONG and dedicated Wife First..and then Mother.. But an amazing child of God... It would be wrong of me to say that she is always happy .. but it would be Right of me to say... She lives life with such Grace. Her daily trials with her husbands journey some days spark tears in my eyes... and other days.. I get praises and joys... if you do NOT read her blog.. you are MISSING one of life's greatest Journeys... of an amazing wife and mother!!! Thank You Kori!!

Now.. the rules are....
1.The winner puts logo on her/his blog.
2.Link the person you received your award from.
3.Nominate 7 other blogs.
4.Put links of those blogs on yours.
5.Leave a message on the blogs of those you’ve chosen.

So.. My first pick...
Krystyn at Really, Are you Serious? I can't remember how I came up on her blog.. but I'm so glad I did.. I love reading stories of her daughter.. she is the CUTEST little Red head in the blogging community... She's always smiling and always giggling.. LOVE it! And Krystyn has some funny stories that she shares... when I need a good cheering I can jump over there and know that I'll get a smile.

Tanya for The Sunday Baker.. Head on over if you are craving any kind of goodies.. She is a girl after my own heart.. But more than that.. she is an amazing mom... and wife.. she shares her stories that truly come from her heart.. She is REAL.. She is PASSIONATE.. and I love that about her.. She is a blogger that I can hop on and know not only did I wish I had a scratch and sniff screen... I wish I could sit at her table and listen to her chat.. because she has many stories to share... I can see her years from now sharing all her family stories in hopes that no story goes untold.. and each family member's legacy is never lost.

Mere from the Babblings of Mere... She is amazing!! absolutely amazing..She is a Junior In Highschool and has a better outlook on life than many adults I know.. It took me a few reads to realize she was a young teenager...Imagine my surprise... lol lol... Mere has the world in her hands.. and she isn't afraid to explore it.. A passion I wish I had at her age...Her faith is strong.. her passion for others is amazing...and I know in my heart.. about 4 or 5 years from now.. she's going to be sending me tickets to her Broadway musical... Yeah.. one of those in NY City!!!Mere is going to be a star!!

Lisa from Pugposse.. She has the most amazing Pugs and such a love for them.. they crack me up... and I have to say they are probably the most spoiled dogs on the internet.. LOL LOL LOL... She also has a passion for her family that I love.. Her daughters are beautiful and funny.. and sometimes a bit crazy.. lol lol... It doesn't hurt that she has the cutest home in town ( yes we live in the same town)... My son came out and asked her if she was "rich".. EGADS.. only my son.. but she does have adorable decorations everywhere.. I thought I was a country decorator.. NO WAY.. want to see country... you have to peek in her house... Unfortunately her blog is set to private.. but trust me.. You would adore her!!

Chris for Enjoying the View ..This gal is always doing something... She is a sponsor for Compassion ( check out her blog for more info)... She works very hard for her family getting up at the wee hours in the morning... She is a passionate wife.. who adores her husband.. ( she gave him a birthday trip just for him... now that's love!!).. Her daughters have the cutest little antics... that make me laugh out loud.. and she has an amazing relationship with her sisters.. something I'm jealous over.. ** wink wink*....when something captures her heart.. she is passionate about it.. and never gives up on that passion... I love that about her... She has been one of my first blogger friends.. and I'm so glad we found each other...

Crossroads Cottage.. her blog is as beautiful as it sounds.... she makes the most amazing pinwheels that she sells on ETSY... I am so tempted just to make up a party just to display them around my home.. Ok.. I'm a nerd.. anyhow.. if you go grab a big tall glass of Sweet Tea.. and sit back and cruise her blog.. she will have yummy cupcakes.. pictures of her decorating... LOVE DECORATING myself... but she has a true Knack for it.. and then she'll take you down Cottage Lane.. and show you homes through her town... Those are to DIE FOR!! Being in New England and especially the area I am.. we have some amazing homes.. and some almost like hers.. but there is a certain charm she displays in her pictures.. Her blog will NOT disappoint you!

Susanne at Living to Tell the Story... This blog is FULL and I mean FULL of information... about books.. about scripture.. about meal planning.. about how to deal when your baby becomes a college student.. sniff sniff... She's not afraid to share her faults.. that she turns into little humorous readings... She shares what she is passionate about almost everyday.. and she has this uncanny addiction to Canadian Idol.. LOL LOL.. I don't watch TV.. so I love to head on over to her blog and see who is the running for one of her favorite shows... She is truly an inspirational women full of laughter... passion.. faith.. and loves life! She's Awesome!!

Well.. I hope you all have a happy Saturday.. I am OFF to get my hubby up and get him out the door... I found a FREE boat for him on FREECYCLE!! I can't believe we were the ones that actually got picked.. my hubby has a passion for fishing.. and has WANTED a boat for a LONG TIME.. but has always put other things in front of that WANT..So I'm so glad he was chosen... it needs a little bit of work.. ( new waterpump).... but new water pump vs.. new boat... we'll go for the pump... Wish us Luck!!

Congrats on your award! And way to go on the boat find. I love our boat and wouldn't trade it for the world, small enough to go fishing and big enough to take the kids tubing!
