Paying Forward

Ok, I'm so new to blogging! Forgive me for any breeches of blog etiquette! It occurred to me tonight that part of the honor of the Blogger Reflection Award is to pass it on. Here are the instructions:
"Give to those who have been an encouragement, a source of love, impacted you in some way, and have been a Godly example to you. Five Bloggers who when you reflect on them you get a sense of pride and joy… of knowing them and being blessed by them. This award is for the best-of-the-best so consider who you pick, carefully. This award should not be given to just anyone. If you’re going to do the award don’t just write a few words and slap it on your Blog. Write real thoughts about these Bloggers and what they’ve meant to you. If the Bloggers you pick have already been given the award, don’t be afraid to give it to them again. They deserve it as many times as it’s given."

So here are my nominees:

  • Kate at The Tate School introduced me to blogging and is a true friend. I can always count on her to post something upbeat and her photo blog is excellent.
  • Lane at Mostly I'm Tired reports on the ups and downs of family life with a brilliant sense of humor. Start with this post for a good laugh!
  • Alycia at For Where Your Treasure Is amazes me with her ability to overflow with joy and encouragement. She is a military wife living far from home, often without her hubby around. Her site always blesses and challenges me.
  • Charlotte at 50 Toes was one of the first bloggers I read. I return often for her witty posts and insights. Her Music Mondays are always fun.
  • Last, but certainly not least, Jennifer at Jennsblog. An old friend with whom I've become reacquainted through blogging, of all things. She is a skilled and thoughtful writer. I always like to see what she's reading, too. (She's very smart - I might learn something!)

Thanks, again, to Mary for nominating me. I hope these recipients feel as blessed as I do.

Awww, thanks girl. That was so sweet of you. I'd much rather read your blog and the 4 others you nominated than mine any day. I have totally neglected that blog and would much rather speak words through pictures! But nonetheless, thanks for your sweetness. :)
