how’s your credit score
August 29, 2007 8 Comments
I have received some very nice accolades, as of late, from my new friends in Blogtopia.
I am not sure if there is etiquette to this award giving thing; so I will error on the side of better judgment by paying forward a few complements and giving credit where credit is due. The under named persons / sites have been a part of my daily routine for quite some time now. Sometimes I read and enjoy, sometimes I read and think, and sometimes I read and ignore. The important thing, to me, is that I always read.
I look forward to each of them for different reasons. The comments that I leave for them are sometimes value added statements (in my opinion), and other times they are just nonsense; attempting to be humorous. Sometimes I reply to try to be a blessing; and other times I reply just to let them know that I came to visit. So without further delay, I present to you, some of my newest friends:
PS: I made the awards myself…that’s how much I care…
My first award goes to Alasdair @ http://manaboutthehouse.wordpress.com/
MATH is a consummate reminder to me that life is hectic and glorious at the same time. He seems to find joy in misery and vice versa. (i may be overstating a bit) His posts are as random as back hair but far more useful. He goes from being Mr Mom to Super Dad at the speed of a bullet. He has a wife that adores him and will fight you to prove it. His political views are well thought out and powerfully stated. He is a “wanna be” handyman that drinks tea in the afternoon. I can’t tell, sometimes, if he believes in nothing or everything when it comes to spiritual matters; but he seems to believe in “people”. (Though sometimes he believes that they are simply morons: lol :)
It makes sense to follow MATH with his wife Jo @ http://naughtystep.wordpress.com/
Jolene is the family bread winner, by family choice. At a glance there is very little that we have in common. After all, I am a man and she is not. She makes homemade toys for her children and sews ridiculous costumes for her family to wear in public. All of which I admire due to the tradition and values that she tries to carry on from generation to generation. She is also a wiz with trimming sheers. She adjusted her hubby’s hairstyle on a whim and proudly displayed it for the world to
ridicule admire. I am most drawn to her site for something un-awarded today. She has taken on a role in her household that is typically saved for a man. I watch to see how she handles life, home, and work from a perspective that is similar to mine…but opposite. She gives me comfort by sharing in my outlook of the world and providing me with a view that would never be afforded to me otherwise; that of a woman, wife, and mother.
Then there is my award for HisGirl @ http://tejasfan.wordpress.com/
From the age of four, she has been devoted to a life to please Christ. She is a wonderful reminder that there is nothing that happens to us that cannot be explained or assisted through the Word of God. She is strong willed and soft spoken. I count on her kind words in my comment section whenever I write something new. I used to wish that she wrote more frequently; but I have learned to be patient and wait…and it’s always worth it. Her writings are refreshing and invigorating.
My next award is for Chantal @ http://crrz07.wordpress.com/
Here is her “about me“. There is not a braver (is that a word?) person in the world than a single mother. My hat goes off (and stays off) for every woman that fits that bill. Chantal has left me some very kind and thoughtful comments that have been an encouragement to me and my writings. Sometimes they are ironic for me to read because she seems to be amazed by the things that I write; when in reality it is me that is amazed by her and by how she is able to work full time, care for her two beautiful children and her home, and still manage to keep her sanity. What she does for her family is AMAZING. May God continue to bless her and her children!
And last, but not least, Anita Marie @ http://animoscrypt.wordpress.com/
