Bloggy Love

Those of you who know me well, know very well that my brain is like a sieve. And it's not only very annoying sometimes, but it's very embarrassing, too! I've had to revert to using a day-timer like I did during my baby days—you know, those years when I was either pregnant or nursing and sleep was a prime commodity. I think I need to put a pretty ribbon loop on the thing (my day-timer) and carry it like women carried dance cards during the Victorian era. Wouldn't that be quite a fashion statement? Oh. my.

Then there's the whole thing about not just remembering what day it is, but putting together that if today is, say, Tuesday, that means the next day is Wednesday, which means doing my Word-filled Wednesday picture and posting it!! (which, incidentally, I looooove doing! See my elephant in the hot air balloon? LoL) This week I had my picture made and ready to go, I had a blog post in mind to go with it (which is where the problem was—my mind!!) and forgot about it. Because I had it figured out, my mind checked it off. *duh* Note to self: must not check things off in my mind until they are fully completed, not just thought through and figured out.

So, Here's the skinny on this: I forgot about an award I had been given! It's not that I don't want or appreciate it, but I forgot. I carefully recorded the information to go with and put it in a document, but had to file said document so my computer could do the update-thing. And that's when I forgot it. (Now, why is it I can remember all that, but it took me forever to remember the award? Hmmmmm?) Second note to self: that's what the day-timer is for!

Beckie at Only With God's Blessing has passed the Proximity Award on to me.
"This blog invests and believes in PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."

Wow. Thank you so much, Beckie! This is so special. (I loved the line 'and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.' It just made me smile. LoL) Beckie has an incredible heart for adoption, and a tremendous ministry. I only wish I could attend the ladies' meetings she does! Wow! Thank you, Beckie!

Now, I realize this says to pass it on to eight others, but I'm a rebel at heart. (Finally admitting that was fun! Kinda like coming out of the closet—the rebel-in-hiding closet, not that other one. LoL) Soooo, I'm only passing it on to three.

Stonefox (otherwise known as Heidi) of Moms, Ministry and More. I never know what to expect at Heidi's, and I love that. She tickles my funny bone (a highly valued commodity some days!) and makes me think. Heidi, and her family, work (minister) in Asia, and that puts her very close to my heart. Heidi, I love visiting you—just please keep putting spew alerts when necessary! (my computer thanks you! LoL)

Joanne of An Open Book is a constant source of encouragement to me. She's the Energizer Bunny—truly, and she astounds me. I've watched her plug away at her goals in the midst of all the other things she's juggling and I'm shamed. She's the tortoise, and I'm the hare—and we all know the outcome of that story. Joanne is teaching me her tortoise ways, so maybe there's hope for me yet. *grin* JoDear, you never cease to amaze me. You are a sparkly jewel that I treasure.

Sunny of Jesus Rulz Me keeps challenging me. Some days I tip toe in, fearful because my toes still smart from my last visit, and sometimes I walk in while still chewing on what I learned from her on my last visit, and sometimes I just plain storm in with a sign around my neck that says 'hit me!' I wish I had flowers in my yard, Sunny, so I could give you some.

There's more to this post, but I'll spread my joy over a few days—a little here and a little there, which is exactly how I like to savor sweets. And these blessings are truly sweet so I want to savor them.

Thank you so much, Beckie, for that award!

    Thank you SO much for this, dear - and you ARE making progress, silly! Love ya!

  2. Patty, you are amazing to consider me. Thank you so much! Needless to say, I am behind on my blogging (I blame it on the season but really it is just laziness!) Anyway, you are pretty special yourself and you keep us on our toes too!


Thanks so much for stopping by! I love hearing from you.
