My sweet friend over at Zimm's Zoo sent this my way. So very kind. The way I understand it, this award is given for recognition of cultural, ethical, literary and personal values transmitted in the form of creative and original writing.
And all I have to say to that is. . . wow.
Because you certainly know by now that the ramblings here at Mrs. Troop are, should we say, random? And more often, ummmm, shallow?
But I'm truly honored.
And if, in some way, the chronicle of the chaos that goes on here at the Troops is of the slightest bit of encouragement to you as you plod through life, seeking to enjoy God's good gifts and give Him the glory, well, then I've done my job.
Know that I'm grateful for each of you who stop by (lately to find me without a new post!) and read and comment and give me so much joy!
Now, the second part of this award requires passing it on. Which I'm happy to do! I'm going to pick five. Because Daughter (#2) is home with a fever and Little Man is climbing on my lap and the insulation people are coming any minute. So. . .
Crazy Daisy - you know I love ya. You are my blogging sister and dear friend. Your posts are always creative and thoughtful. And pretty.
Jo's Kitchen Table - how fun it's been to re-connect with you. Your blog makes me laugh, think, and reach for my Bible more often. And laugh.
One Thing - I don't know you personally and yet I read faithfully. There is nothing like life with 12 kids (so I hear) and Jen's perspective is fun and refreshing. And she's survived! Gotta love that.
a long way from the Theta house - also don't know Melissa "for real" but love this blog. If you haven't discovered her, yet, go there NOW!
Oh Boy. It's harder than I thought to "just" pick five. Hmmmm. If there were more time, I'd read lots and lots of blogs every day. That rarely happens. Usually I just stick to a few favorites. One of which is:
Johnson's Journal - So glad to be keeping up with your life - thank you for being such a sweet example to me!
So that's it for now. . . life calls.
