Part of the Blogging Community

My very first Blogging Award! Ha!

Thanks to my unknown blogging friend "Executive Momma" for giving me the award for an Attitude of Gratitude! I am really totally writing this to keep up with our day to day lives so I and my kids will remember these times. I'm not pursing the blogging world at all. The fact that people are reading what I am writing and even care is a humbling and surreal. I only follow a few people and they are mostly friends I know, but I am following hers and a couple others. And it has been fun to get to "know" these other moms trying to raise their kids in the way of the Lord.

So here's the deal, I want to nominate the following people for an Attitude of Gratitude!

Jamie Jo



Executive Momma





So there you go. The women that I admire and take time out of my crazy day to read about. Each has a special story and although I don't know them all personally. They have made an impact on me.

So what am I grateful for? Without a doubt, my family. God has blessed me with an amazing husband who loves me despite all my many faults. A Godly man who makes his family his priority. And four amazing children that I'm trying no to screw up too terribly! I mess up on a daily if not minute by minute basis, but my prayer is that the love of God will cover my sins and my children will seek His face on their own and it can be said of me, "her children arise and call he blessed."

And why do I have an Attitude of Gratitude? Because of what my Heavenly Father has done for me!

So here's what you do now...

1. put the logo on your blog

2. nominate 10 blogs that show an attitude of gratitude

3. link to your nominees within your post

4. comment on their blogs to let them know they've recieved the award
