I am not ungrateful. It’s just…
I have to say thank you to some really nice people who’ve taken time to recognize me for what I write (which is humbling) and what I comment on (which doesn’t seem fair to other commenters because I like to talk and I share my opinion frequently).
I have some gracious friends for sure:
Anne at “My Life Uncut…Almost” and Diane at “hometogo232” have both been kind enough to send me the “Versatile Blogger Award” (Anne sent me the trophy VBA and Diane sent me the white VBA — did you know there were three different VBAs? I did not! You learn something everyday!)
Anne also has bestowed “The Beautiful Blogger Award” (which I’d already received but am doubly grateful for now) and “The Commentator Award” on me:
Diane also kindly granted me “The Reader Appreciation Award.”
And finally, Sara from “kyllingsara” gave me a lovely nod with the “One Lovely Blog Award.”
I promise to be more timely with any awards I receive in the future. Since there aren’t a whole lot of unknown facts about me on this blog (since I tend to share everything), I am going to improvise by sharing some really, really random facts about me (just once — not for every award), and then recognize the wonderful people I’m passing these awards on to.
SOME THINGS ABOUT ME THAT YOU PROBABLY DON’T KNOW:
I just got a new iPhone two weeks ago, but truthfully, I miss my Blackberry. I’m told that this will pass.
I “had” an acquaintance named Sue who was expecting her first baby. When I saw her after a long, long while (but was sure it had not yet nine months), I said “Oh Sue! You must be ready to have that baby! You look like you’re about to pop!” Sue burst into tears and cried, “I had her six weeks ago!” Needless to say, I do not discuss due dates with anyone who’s not family anymore.
I once wore a skirt inside-out and backwards to church — Sunday morning and Sunday night. When I finally noticed right before the night service, I had several people (including my husband and other relatives) say, “Oh, I noticed but I thought it might upset you if I mentioned it.” REALLY??? Upset me MORE than realizing it had been that way all day?
I still miss hearing Karen Carpenter sing. *sigh*
- I would one day like to write a 365-day devotional book for women or a mystery-romance with a Christian POV (I have a notebook in which I keep my ideas. But there’s nothing I want to share…yet.)
