Thanks, you all!!!!! (updated)

Go check out all the winnners!

(What I want to know is, with a title like this, am I ever allowed to complain? Because if not, I’d better scratch this evening’s post…)



Updated to add: My 15 year old son just came and stuck a set of headphones on my head because he’d discovered that my daughter’s new WOW CD contains one of my current favorite songs: You Make Me Happy. Go listen, and tell me if it makes you happy too.

  10. Congratulations!! You totally deserve it!

  11. Thank you for saying this with so much clairty. You have captured the tug and pull of motherhood so well — and it’s exactly what I’ve been feeling lately. This morning I was driving, and the song “What a Beautiful World” came on the radio. I told my kids to listen, look out the window and just hear the words. It was peaceful For one brief moment, all was right with the world, and I had transcended the need to find balance.

    And thank you again for choosing my as a finalist. I am overjoyed. Writing it from my heart has already fulfilled me — whether or not I win.

    Thanks so much for your blog, and yes, you deserve the award! Lots of joy here.

  12. Congrats on your well-deserved award!
