Thank you awrestlingwriter for nominating my blog for the One Lovely Blog Award. I started this blog at the end of May thinking I would most likely be giving up on it by the beginning of June, sometimes my optimistic side stays hidden in the shadows. I’m happy to say I’m still around and happier to have become part of a community of like-minded people, gifted and gracious.
My nominator says . . .
“So, the One Lovely Blog Award nominations are chosen by fellow bloggers for those newer or up-and-coming bloggers. The goal is to help give recognition and to also help the new blogger reach more viewers. It also recognizes blogs that are considered to be “lovely” by the fellow-blogger who chose them. This award acknowledges bloggers who share their story or thoughts in a beautiful manner to connect with their viewers and followers.”
In acceptance, those nominated have a few guidelines to follow:
Thank the person who nominated you for the award.

Share 7 facts/or things about yourself.
Nominate 15 bloggers you admire and inform nominees by commenting on their blog.
7 Things About Me
So then; 7 things about me . . .
I am not normal. Weirdly random with an offbeat sense of humor. I don’t fit into any societal molds, I am simply, unashamedly, and happily who I am.
I am a woman of faith. I try to honor The Lord each moment, I fall short of his glory daily and earnestly seek his council and forgiveness when I do.
I hoard books. I love reading and re-reading the classics, I actually enjoy reading Shakespeare, I’ve committed pieces of Poe to memory simply by reading them so often.
The first book I remember reading as a child is The Old Man and the Sea by Hemingway.
I have four positively amazing, inspiring children. They are my heroes. My oldest two are autistic, one of them is bipolar as well. My daughter has spread her wings, married and moved away. I want her back sometimes. My youngest will graduate next year, he is a witty genius and one of my truest friends.
My mother is my best friend.
I have been in love with my husband since I was sixteen. That was . . . a long time ago.
On to the nominations; this one is difficult as I am so new to the community of bloggers, I haven’t had the opportunity to really delve into many of the blogs I have clicked that little follow button on, for now these six blogs are the ones that have touched my heart, of course there are more, choosing is overwhelming. They may be new to blogging or veterans of the blogging world, they are all lovely to me.
Thank you again, awrestlingwriter, for thinking of me . . . If you hadn’t been my nominator you would certainly be on my list of nominees :o)
