Shine on, Beautiful Mama, Super Sweet, Best Moment, Reality Blog Awards!

Yep, gonna get caught up here, thank you Jesus.  This past month has been a little unsettling, but alas, I choose to focus on the positive and trust God for the rest.  Really, it’s the only way I can not be a basket case!  In the midst of my craziness my friends have blessed me with abundance.  Yep, my cup is running over.  You guys/gals never cease to amaze me. Thank you!

I am following 406 blogs. Is that normal?  No wonder I don’t get them all in my Reader.  Can you crash a WordPress Reader?  I know, lots of questions today.

(PS, if I nominate you and you don’t want to play – no worries, I know some people accept and some do not, I love you just the same!)

A big thank you to my fellow bloggers, and friends, for nominating me for the following awards. I love you all!

Being a mom, I am the finder of all lost things, the bandager of all wounds, and the light in the darkness!  I am so blessed with children, they truly are a gift. And I think sometimes, they teach me more than I teach them!

Perpetua – of Theseeker

for the REALITY Blog Award

2013-reality-blog-award-from-eye-dancer

There are five questions that go along with this award.

1) If you could change one thing, what would you change? No more sorrow, no more tears, no more pain, no more abuse

2) If you could repeat an age, what age would it be? I don’t even want to go there, sorry.  I like to live my life going forward, not in reverse!

3) What is one thing that really scares you? I don’t like jumping spiders!

4) What is one dream you have not completed, and do you think you will be able to complete it?  I would love to travel with my husband. And yes, we will, after the kiddos are on their own!

5) If you could be someone else for the day, who would you be? I have a hard enough time being me sometimes, not gonna try to be someone else.  Besides, I buried my old masks!
