Versatile Blogger Award

I received my very first blogging award Tuesday.  Yep, I am serious, it's my first award ever.  I was given this award by Nikki over at Joy in the Journey.  I love her blog verse:

 1 Thess 5:16 "Rejoice always." 

I love the fact that Nikki's goal in life is to be a wife and teacher to her children.  Her goal is discipling those children, and I find that very admirable!  Thank you so much Nikki for my very first award EVER!!  May God richly bless your journey!
Here are the rules for this award:
  • Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them.
  • Tell your readers 7 things about yourself.
  • Give this award to 15 recently discovered bloggers.
  • Contact those bloggers and let them in on the news.
Here are my 7 little known facts:

  1. I am finally letting my hair go natural.  This is very tough to swallow as I age.  I had this lovely golden hair with reddish highlight growing up.  Now it is streaked with silver.  However, I am letting it show now, because I really feel I have earned each and every one of them ;-)
  2. I never wanted to have children.  I recently made this known at our women's bible study.  There were some shocked gals, let me tell you.  I had watched my mother raising 3 girls, I knew just how hard it could be, and I knew how little of 'self' a mother got.  I just didn't want to give up myself at all.  Thankfully, God saw differently and knew that I needed 5 children to help focus all that hyper activity I had untapped.
  3. I used to race my car Friday nights.  Yep, won nearly ever time too.  I had a nice, big, beautiful '69 Impala to run around with.
  4. I bid on things I will never win on eBay.  I know, sick habit.  There are so many fun things on eBay, but I had to curb that habit the first time I won something truly rediculous.  who knew the other folks would stop so low???
  5. I wish a baby girl would somehow land on my doorstep.  I had such troubles with delivering babies that we shut the factory down after Noah.  Now I do wish we could adopt a little baby girl so that Bekah could have a sister.  Hubby has some reserves about adoption, so quite literally a baby girl has to land in our laps if it is ever going to happen.
  6. I feel the itch to move again already.  We are a military family and we move around a lot.  God has blessed us by letting us stay put for 3 more years!!!  It is wonderful to be able to rest in one place for that long, but every time I hear of someone PCSing to a new location, I want to do it too.  It's probably just the house hunting.  I actually love doing that!!
  7. I love cooking!  I held a reputation growing up that I would never ever attempt to master anything that even smelled like domesticity.  But I love playing in the kitchen and even love making bread from scratch.  Don't let my cousins know, I will never live it down!!

Now off to give 15 bloggers this award!  Here is the link list.

Ok, so it's not a total 15, but I chose to award with integrity.  These are blogs I enjoy reading and I happily pass on the award to these folks!!
