Very Inspiring

The exceptionally talented, Stuart M. Perkins, who writes one of my favorite blogs, at recently nominated me for “The Very Inspiring Blog” Award. I promised that if I could figure out how to link others’ blogs on my own site that I’d happily accept the award. Yet even as I pasted Stuart’s link into my blog I have grave doubts that I did it correctly. 

I’m going to do my best, though, because I’ve passed up these awards before, and I appreciate Stuart thinking I’m worth reading. As he says, that’s all any of us really want.

The rules of accepting the award are as follows:

  • Thank and link to the person who nominated you.
  • List the rules and display the award.
  • Share seven facts about yourself.
  • Nominate 15 other blogs you enjoy, then comment on their posts to let them know you nominated them.

Seven facts about myself. Hmmmm. I make so much stuff up that facts are scarce. 

  1. I’m a grandmother to five beautiful, brilliant children.
  2. My husband and I were high school sweethearts and have been married for 38.5 years.
  3. My degree in elementary education was earned at The University of Mary in Bismarck, ND.
  4. Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope is my favorite movie.
  5. I ride a motorcycle.
  6. My all-time favorite book is To Kill A Mockingbird. 
  7. My secret dream is to be an astronaut.

Okay, now to the tricky part–passing along the Most Inspiring Award to 15 blogs that I follow. I follow some really great bloggers, so I hope I do this correctly. Be sure to check out their sites.


I realize that many of those listed above have been the recipients of many blogger awards, so please do not feel obligated to accept. Just know I enjoy reading your posts!

Peace, People!

  1. Thank you for the nomination! What praise to get from another blogger. You deserved your nomination and congratulations, but I feel that I am not worthy….


      1. I am so thankful I found your blog. You truly inspire me. And challenge me. I always look forward to reading what you have to say.
        As to the grand kids, I’m the adorer. They, the adorees.

  2. Congratulations on your award and thank you for the nomination! It means so much that you enjoy my blog enough to think of me.

    And my apologies for not responding sooner. My sister, Eggnog, changed the password to the computer and wouldn’t tell me what it was. She said my blog causes nothing but chaos and drama in our house!

    It’s especially meaningful to me that you would consider my blog inspirational. I try very hard to use my observations for good. That’s probably why it troubles me so that Eggnog says my blog is the source of so much chaos. I hope your nomination will help her see that my blog is a force for good. Thank you!!

    1. You and your siblings crack me up. Honestly, I’m not even sure I got around to notifying everyone whose links I listed. It won’t surprise you to discover that my cats are far more technologically inclined than I and wouldn’t allow me the use of my computer for an entire week.
