I am soooo grateful!

It is such a great honor when someone takes the time to recognize your work.  My friend, Rhonda over at  Help Me Rhonda” has nominated my little old blog for the Very Inspiring Blog Award.  She has a very creative way of stating the facts of life with a wee bit of humor.   I am very grateful to Rhonda again for the recognition.

It is getting tougher and tougher to come up with random things without telling all my business, as if I haven’t already.  I may not have “7”, but I will try…

1.  I can’t swim.  I went to this waterpark and because I didn’t want to be left out, I followed my husband on a ride for “strong swimmers”.  My husband went first and when he got to the bottom, he knew that there was no way that I would survive the terror, so we held up the whole line until I could get down.  😦

2.  I hate rollercoasters.  Really most rides, period.

3.  I can’t rollerskate.  I guess you are wondering what can she do??

3.  My mother in law lived with us for 14 years. You may let you mind wonder on that one…

4.  My favorite vacation spot is Bermuda.  I love the clear bluish purple water and the pink sand.

5.  I am studying for my Missionary’s license.  Order Your Steps is not just my business, but my ministry.

 I can’t think of anything else, Sorry!


First, I want to apologize to Steve over at “Just Be Foundation“.  I probably shouldn’t have nominated his blog for the  A Lovely Blog Award, although I really enjoy his blog.  I obviously didn’t think that all the way through, so I would like to nominate him for “Very Inspiring Blog” Award instead.  Sorry Steve!!

Now I will nominate “7” bloggers for the award.

I am speechless….

Speechless, Not Quite!….  Believe or not, I have been nominated for yet another award.  My friend, Sarah has found a tad of “Loveliness” in my blog.  Please take a visit over to her blog, Truthlets & Thoughtbits.  She speaks on everyday life, but she gives you food for thought and sparks some interesting conversations.  I am very appreciative of the recognition.  Although, my initial motivation for doing a blog was rather personal & somewhat selfish, I am now truly overwhelmed at the response of my readers and I am extremely grateful!


Now I have to give you “7” random things about me…

1.  I modeled for my mom, who was a hairstylist when I was about 11-12 years old.  I was already almost 6′ tall.  My two favorite outfits were the “leather” vinyl dress and over the knee boots and my crushed velvet, hot pink, hot pants with white go-go boots.  Yeah, WOW!!

2.  I “dated” a 7’2″ guy in high school.  We went out on A “date” and my dad took me to one of his basketball games after high school.  He sent me a “Dear Johnnie” letter with some beautiful yellow roses, after he left for college.

3.  I wanted to skydive and drive a Corvette, when I was a lot younger.

4.  I wanted to drive a Ford Mustang when I got a lot older.

5.  I graduated from high school when I was 17 and graduated college at 52.

6.  No, I did not play basketball, nor any other sport.

7.  I was “Acting” Director of Admissions at 22… and no, it had nothing to do with the fact that I babysat the Dean’s kids, my first day on the job.

Now I will nominate 7 bloggers for the award.
