A Gift…

In this season of gifting, I opened my blog today to see that I received a gift from a fellow blogger.  Serious thoughts taken not so seriously awarded me for The Shauny Award.  I am always humbled when I receive these awards.  It makes me feel good to know that people think I fall into the categories these awards stand for.  Personally, I think my words come out of me as an overlow of an over active mind and I know I can’t keep telling hubby the same stories over and over, so, I write them.  I often picture people reading my words (especially those I know and love) as rolling their eyes and saying to themselves, “Oh no, she didn’t just write that, did she?”

So, it is with this spirit of gifting, that I follow the rules for this award.  I want to pass this award on to 10 people I believe show humility, love and authenticity to be themselves in their blogs.  So, here is this Shauny Award:

I consider the blogs I listed above (and several that I did not mention) as gifts to me.  They have made me laugh, made me cry and they challenged and encouraged me on many days.  Thank you my dear friends, you are an example of what great writing is and can be.  DAF
