Thinking Blogger Award

I received this from Sandi, who said that I ‘share about faith and life and race and homeschooling always with gentle grace.‘  That’s a humbling statement for me; all I’ve posted is the pondering of my mind and heart, and I don’t always know that I’m successful at articulating it well, so I appreciate her thinking of me.    The idea, as I understand it, is to give the award to five bloggers who make you think.   It’s not easy to single out five of the many great blogs out there as each one of my friends brings something special to the table.   Even though she doesn’t blog much here (I think she keeps two blogs), mckiddies3’s diary of finding love again and planning her wedding takes me back to when my husband and I were in that season of our relationship—such sweet memories, though not as sweet as our current days together.    Melissa at TwaddleMeNot has such wisdom about working with preschoolers, and such  Biblical truths are revealed in her writing about everyday life with small children.   I’d give an award right back to Sandi at Titus2Woman as she blogs about the lighter side of life, something I have trouble pinning as I’m generally the more serious type, but I don’t think that returning an award to the person who gave it to you is in keeping with the idea.   So, having said all of that, here is my effort at giving away this award:

 Keri Mae at AhappyHome, who is so careful about her words and so thorough in her study, both traits that seem to elude me at times.

 Lyria at Schooldaze, who introduced me to blogging, and, along with Keri Mae, helped my blogging take shape, form, and purpose.

 Angi at Peakmore Academy, who challenges me to stay true to the Charlotte Mason approach by continuously showing its beauty.

 Homebydesign, whose Christ-first commitment challenges my very Martha-like nature.

 And, finally, PumpkinsMomma, who writes her heart in a way that simply wrenches mine.

 God bless you ladies and all the many other bloggers out there whom I’ve yet to see, but I know are blessing others through the words of their testimonies.

(I’ll play with this image later to get it down to size, but right now I’m short on time.  On second thought, never mind).

    Thanks so much for your kind words!! It's nice to know I'm able to share with others what God puts on my heart and have people enjoy reading it is awesome too!!!

    I'm adding you to my friends list, I keep forgetting to come back and check your blog as frequently as I mean too. Now I'll be back more often 🙂

    I will indeed tag some other bloggers I enjoy, and I will make a post ackowledging you for your kind words and picking me for the award, but I'm going to change the award a little like my friend Kinley did, since there are some questionable things on that mans site that I don't want to link to. thanks again,

    I just got back here to see you left me a comment and an award! Thanks! You help make up a wonderful blogging community and inspire so many Mamas. I'm looking into your curriculum to use for history as my oldest goes into K.

Your two cents, please!
