Another Award

Two dear friends have both given me the Kreativ Blogger Award. Alice at From the Heart, a very loving lady who is always encouraging others, and then Alleluiabelle at Humble as I Go also awarded it to me. What rich gifts God has given me in these friends. Thank you both for thinking of me. I truely appreciate you.

I am required to nominate 7 other bloggers for this award and they are supposed to nominate 7 others. (Be sure to leave a comment on their blog about the award.) After they accept the award they are then asked to write a list of 7 things that their blog readers may not already know about them.

Now most of you know that I don't generally follow the rules about these awards and I just give them out to all of my bloggy friends because I really do think you all deserve them. Well this time I'm going to try to follow the rules and pick some of you for this award.

Now if I pick you and you don't have room on your sidebar for another award or it's the wrong color, or not your style, or you can't hang it straight, that's ok. You are not required to hang it on your blog unless you want to.

But I'm sure you can come up with 7 things about yourself that we don't already know so have some fun and do the post. :)

Here are my picks:

ADHD-Jo at Monkey's are Funny - I pick her because she could win a creative wrtiting contest hands down. So she certainly deserves this award.

Sue J at CREATE: Making Something of Today - The title of her blog alone says it all. She is creative in her writing and activities.

Heaven at Heaven's Journey - God is working through her to create some wonderful Name Pictures inspired through prayer. You can see some of her work at Heaven Designed.

Mrs P at The Patterson 5 - For her creatively fun family outings and adventures. :)

Alexa (Cindy's daughter) at Army Brats and Me - When Cindy got cancer, Alexa came up with the idea to give away "Faith" and "Hope" bracelets to people in every state in the country to encourage prayer for her mom. Now THAT's creative AND Love. Way to go Alexa!

Gigi and Cici at Chatty Kelly's Kids Say - They are very creative thinkers!

Zoie (Pamela's daughter) at Pinkshoelady - For her creative poem for her daddy on Father's Day.

The kids can tell us 7 things about themselves or their parents at the parents discretion.

Now 7 things about me that you don't know. Hmmm.

1. I have only ever had one broken bone in my life and I paid a doctor to break it. I worked in an ENT office and one day we got talking about what each of the doctors seemed to be best at. When we started talking about the doctor who was good at nose jobs I mentioned that I didn't like my nose. About that time the doctor walked in and the girls in the office offered that information to him. The rest is history.

2. I remember almost every detail about the house I lived in when I was three years old but I don't remember a great deal of my childhood after that.

3. I have only ever gone away for vacation once in my life and that was within the last 10 years. A friend of mine in California and I decided to go to Florida on vacation together one year. She flew to Texas where her plane connected with mine at DFW airport and we flew together the rest of the way.

4. I clean when I'm angry or upset. From the look of some areas in my house, I must be pretty content.

5. I took a silver-smithing jewelry class in HS. I would love to do that again.

6. As a kid, one of my chores for a period of time was to feed the dog. I had to open a can of dog food using a manual can-opener. To this day I can't use a manual can-opener without thinking of dog food.

7. I moved out on my own when I was 17. I had my dad's permission and blessing. I was very close to my dad, I just wanted to be on my own.

Thanks for reading along!


Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind ~ Luke 10:27

Congratulations on another award! :) Well deserved.

Fun to read 7 things about you. Now, I will probably think of dog food, too, when I use the manual can opener. :)

Chatty Kelly said...

Thanks for thinking of my kids! I will show them and it will make their day!

I would like to take a class too, not necessarily silver smith, but dancing or cake decorating or something. I think it would be fun.

#4 made me laugh! I must be down right happy, not just content. LOL!

The Patterson 5 said...

Oh Edie! You are so kind and encouraging! Thank you! I loved reading your seven things!

Ouch to your only broken bone one but at least you probably were made not to feel it!

Neat about your home when you were three. All I remember from my first home was that we had a screen back door. My mom evidently took great effort to give me a wonderful room there only I don't remember it. We moved away from there after my third birthday.

The dogfood. What an icky thing to have to think of when using a manual can opener. Could cause you not to want to eat what's in the can.

Glad you are content and may your house be messy!

I'll bet the jewelry you made was absolutely creative and original!

Thanks for sharing the award and thanks for sharing all about you!

Sharon said...

Edie, that was fun reading about you, loved the post, and you deserve the award always!
Have a Beautiful Day my friend :)

Andrea said...

Loved learning more about you. Silver-smithing sounds fun!!

Pinkshoelady said...

Hey Sweet Friend,
Zoie just screamed with delight when she saw her name! You made her day. She hads fun putting down her seven things and even tried to get me into a little trouble too.

I loved your seven things. You know Edie the more I read about you and what is on your heart the more I can't wait until we have eternity together to sit down and share our stories.

I love who you are my friend! God did so good when He gave us you!

Love Pamela

Irritable Mother said...

Loved this!
Hey, the next time you're feeling angry, would you hop on a plane and come to Michigan? I would love to provide whatever cleaning therapy you need. *grin*

My Army Brats and Me said...

How sweet is this. I cant wait to tell her she is going to think she is the bomb.com:) Love ya

fighting like a girl

Sue J. said...

Thanks for the nod, my bloggy friend! Will try to get to that post soon. (Not being as creative on the Proverbs blog, but very consistent!)

CJ now has her own blog, so she may be the next recipient of this fine award.

Will check in again soon!

My ADHD Me said...

Thank you that you thought of me.
You're such a super friend.
You know that monkeys aren't funny.
That's all, this is the end.

It seems the more I find out about you, the more I realize that we have in common.

1.I had to get a doctor to break both of my pinky toes to fix them.

2. I remember close to nothing of my childhood.

3. I had never even been out of VA until I was married and even now I haven't been far.

4. I must be ecstatic!

5. OK, nothing in common there..lol

6. I have a dog.

7. I moved out when I was 17 also.

Greg C said...

My wife does number 4 too. We have a very clean house. :)

God's girl said...

Thank you so much:) I just love learning more about you and all my other bloggy friends! I'm not sure when I can find the time to do this post, but I will get it done eventually:)

Thank you again:)
