You Make Me Smile Award

Written By: Jodi on September 24, 2007 No Comment

My dear friend and sister-in-crime, Dianna, has awarded me with the You Make Me Smile award. Isn’t that nice of her? In fact, it made me smile, but I guess I can’t award her back with it. Rats!

I will sort of copy her post so if you aren’t familiar with the award, you will be now.

“This is what the person that created this award says about it- 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 top ten 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.Although there are MANY people I want to give this award to at this very moment, I am going to choose ten bloggers:

Please grab your badge and wear it(with a smile) proudly, and pass it on because you inspire and encourage me, thank you. So, now it is my turn to pass it on. “

**Don’t forget to pass it on to 10 more bloggers.

So now I’m supposed to find 10 other bloggers to award this to…who haven’t already received it. Now I’m going to pay for not being up on my blog reading!! I’ll do my best.

I have chosen, in no particular order…

Heather – Okay, I’m sort of cheating here right off the bat. This is supposed to be for people who have inspired me through their blogging, and quite frankly, Heather is NOT blogging on a regular basis. But I know she feels bad about that and if she didn’t have 100 other irons in the fire and a (fortunate for me) addiction to online Scrabble, she would blog more frequently. But I have to give her this award because she makes me smile almost every day. The only days she doesn’t are when I don’t chat with her! Then I am sad. :-( But seriously, I don’t know what I would do without my best friend who is always there for me whether I’m smiling or not.

Maggie – While I’m giving this award to those who are not exactly blogging like clockwork, I’ll give it to Mrs. Maggie Hogan, too. You guys, she is a riot. She, Melissa (see below) and I are that fun kind of weird that we can share with each other and we totally get it. She has been very supportive and patient and just a joy to know.

Melissa – Thanks to Maggie (see above), I also have the joy of knowing Melissa. She is also a crazy nut in our tree of weirdness. Boy, I hope she and Maggie don’t take that wrong – I mean weird as a good thing! As in, interesting, fun, able to laugh at ourselves! AND – she actually blogs! More often than I do, even. Check out her adventures in moving and the pics of her nice new house. She is now a Michigander now, like half the homeschooling population, it seems. :-)

Nancy C – Nancy is now my Boss Lady, as I like to call her. But we have worked together for a long time and it is great to have her as a friend. Even though we don’t have time to ‘chit chat’ very often, we do manage it every once in awhile. Check out Nancy’s homesteading adventures on her blogs. :-) She is one of those people I look at and wonder how in the world they get everything done that they do. Also, she may still have a couple of kittens available as she seems to keep getting adopted by mama cats!

Nancy B – Of course, I also want to include my dear friend, Nancy B. We have also worked together for a long time and shared many trials and tribulations. She was such a blessing to me during some of my ‘down’ times and I think we really understand each other well. She is a blessing during ‘up’ times, too! And her family is so talented. You should go read about them on her blog – and maybe she’ll start posting some of her beautiful photographs for us again soon.

Well, that’s half of them, anyway. I’ll try to add the others later. I have to stop now to make dinner. I hope I remember to tell them all that I’ve given them this award!
