Blogger Reflection Award

In June two blogging friends (Sprittibee and Linds) gave me the Blogger Reflection Award. Now I am to honor some bloggers whom I especially enjoy.

1.) First to my mind comes Bub and Pie. Her moving posts about her children bring me into her world. She always puts a thoughtful spin on life, and encourages me to look at things a little more deeply. I don’t usually have much to add to the deep discussions that go on at her blog, but she always makes me think.

2.) Crazy D of Our Big Crazy Family has a family similar to mine, and has a knack for combining humor with thoughtful commentary on life, including the difficult issues in this world that I wish more people cared about. When I read his blog, I feel like this is someone whose heart I really understand.

3.) Kelly of Living in Grace is perhaps one of my most faithful commenters and encouragers. I think she is as excited for me to get my new girls home as I am. In the midst of dealing with her own health challenges, I find it especially moving that she takes the time to care about my life. Every comment from her reminds me not to take anything for granted, and to see the joy in every moment in life.

4.) Mella of The Empty Sky has a spare but descriptive writing style where each word carries weight. A bonus is the sweet pictures she shares of her children. If you really want to smile, check out the slideshow she made of her wedding pictures. They are possibly the sweetest wedding photos I’ve ever seen.

5.) Jenni of Beautiful Heritage is proof you don’t have to be a nutcase to have a bunch of kids. She is a mom of 11, and along with humor and stories about her family, she also writes some really lovely poetry. I’m not usually a huge poetry person, but her writing speaks to me.

  1. I love meeting new people, Mary, so I am off to visit your nominees. So many great people out there!

    About your last post….. things we may consider small and insignificant can and do make a huge difference, and collectively, a series of individual or independant things can combine to be enormous. We don’t have to see the final picture, just play the small part we feel led to play.

  2. *I’M* proof of that?? Are you sure?? rotfl……

    Thank you, though. I’m glad you like the poem.

  3. Awww, I’m so flattered. Especially coming from one of my favorite bloggers. =)

  4. Mary, you encourage me tremendously. Thank you for your sweet words. If only we lived closer, I think we would be great neighbors 🙂

  5. Bub and Pie is a wonderful choice! Off to check out your other picks…
