The Thinking Blogger Award


Thank you Stefanie for nominating my blog for the thinking blogger AWARD. I try to put a lot of thought or at least a lot of myself into what I write. Coming up with 5 blogs that I would like to nominate in turn took a lot of thought and feeling for me. I am a person ruled by my heart first with my mind and spirit coming in a close second. The blogs that inspire me most are ones that engage any of those three in me. The blogs that most inspire my heart are Our Unforgotten Daughter and Chinese Starfish. Tracy whose blog is Our Unforgotten Daughter truly puts her emotions into her blog. She shares her joys and her sorrows for all to see. When I read her posts my heart just goes out to her over and over again. Amanda who authors the Chinese Starfish is truly one of the finest human beings I have ever known. I have the utmost respect for her and her mission to shelter as many special needs Chinese children as she can. The blogs that most inspire my mind are Dragonfly & Ladybug and Give Me Back My Slippers. Elizabeth at Dragonfly & Ladybug was one of the first people to reach to me in the blogging community. She is an unbelievably talented writer and a loving mother. Her words come straight from the heart with a little twist of whit that makes me laugh every time. "Glinda" from Give Me Back My Slippers is also a talented writer. Her words are laced in elegance. She is a closet poet who delivers her souls essence through words that cause reflection. The blog that most engages my spirit is Our Whole World in His Hands. Terri is a very spiritual and Godly woman. I am always touched at a deeper level when reading her posts and inspired to take a moment to connect with my God.
Hopefully I didn't overlap anyone here, I tried to check other nominated blogs so as to not re-nominate someone twice.
I truly enjoy the friendship that I receive from all of the blogs that I follow. It's hard to choose only a few for nomination.

Congratulations! You inspire us all to be better. Today I received Hannah's first square for her quilt and the beautiful wish. Thank you so much Kimberly. It is darling and oh, so special. I am so excited and will hopefully get a link up soon to start the quilt going. I haven't gotten your square in the mail yet but now that I see how to do it I am so excited. I am sending you my favorite fabric from Hannah's room.
Thank you again so much.

**Glinda with hands clasped on chest** Thank you so much for your kind words; I am glad that the words I write and poems I find and post touch you; sometimes when I write I sit with the words and hold them in my heart for awhile, then I let them float on their way, hopeful they will settle upon someone else's heart and reach into their soul, just as they have done with you.
