The Versatile Blogger

I am honored and excited to have received my first blogger award. I am not sure that I am all that versatile, but nevertheless I am pleased to accept the award.

By accepting this award I am bound to abide by the following rules:

1) Thank the blogger who awarded you and link back to them.
2) Share 7 things about yourself.
3) Pass the award along to 15 other newly discovered blogs.

The first rule is the easiest one to follow as I am very grateful to Khush for passing this award on to me. So I send a big thanks to Khush at Journey for choosing me to be among the wonderful bloggers she has chosen to receive this award . I love reading Khush's blog about her your Journey through life. Her kind heart and sweet sense of humor shows through and always adds a smile to my day. So if you if you're up for a treat pop on over and visit the Journey.  Keep up the great work Khush , may it be a very long and rewarding journey.

Now for SEVEN things about myself, this may be difficult to come up with interesting things that are not on my About Me section. But here we go:

1. I have 4 children ages 28, 25, 21 and 18. and 4 grand children ages 4-9 yrs old. I am also an honorary mother to 3 daughters 39, 26 and 25 and honorary grandmother to 5 grandchildren ages 1-12 years old.

2. I am the primary care provider for my husband and my 18 year old daughter. My husband lost both his legs at the knees due to an accident and both my husband and daughter suffer from Bi-polar disorder.

3. Due to a neuromuscular problem I am at times legally blind.

4. I look for the positive in everyone and everywhere.

5. I went back to college at 36 and would go back again in a heart beat.

6. My favorite animal is the male lion. Gotta love that hair!

7. I love the outdoors and dread housework, unless I am angry then it is very therapeutic.

Now for the final step in accepting this award, it is time to pass the award on to 15 recently discovered blogs. Let me first just say a big thanks to ALL of my readers and that I wish I could pick each of you but I guess I had better follow the rules.

Here is the criteria I used in picking which of the many fantastic bloggers I follow to receive this award.
1) Have less than a year in their archives [thus newly discovered]
2) I find the blog fun, entertaining or inspirational

Hope I haven't put you to sleep or scared you away. Here is my list of 15 'newly discovered' blogs. I would like to thank them all for providing me with hours of enjoyment. Please do hop over and visit these terrific folks.

1. Michelle at The Space Between Raindrops
2.  Tracy at The Next Half of Life
3. Niki at Sunflower Web Journal
4. Kate at Her Little Mister
5. Alice at Alice Becomes
6. Bethe at Daily Journey
7. Jessica at Happy Pretty
8. Sarah at Just Another Day

No thanks are necessary, you guys all deserve to get noticed for the great blogs you write.

Rennet, don't worry about it, I completely understand. I wish you well with your project and look forward to reading more of your adventures.

Taryn, thank you for the very kind words I am very glad you like my blog.

Michelle, there isn't a time limit so don't rush yourself. It took me a few days to just figure out how I was going to pick only 15 blogs. Have fun with it.
Have a fab week everyone!
