Kreativ Blogger Award

Today, I received a beautiful surprise from a "super-special" blogging friend. Allelliuabelle at Humble As I Go has a heart full of love, overflowing into the heart of every person who reads her blog. She is a prayer warrior and beautiful person inside out. I am humbled to be chosen by this dear friend. I am amazed by her strength as she reaches out to others in the midst of her own struggles. Both she and her husband face daily medical challenges, yet she is faithful to serve the Lord and encourage everyone. Please stop by and check out her blog.

I am required to nominate 7 other bloggers for this award and they are supposed to nominate 7 others. (Be sure to leave a comment on their blog about the award.) After they accept the award they are then asked to write a list of 7 things that their blog readers may not already know about them. I would like to pass this award on to the following:

1)Heart 2 Heart
2)Dear Craisin
3)An Ordinary Girl Living and Ordinary Life
4)The Dreamers Day
5)Deeper With Jesus In Rhode Island
6)Blue Bird Notes
7)Crayon Chronicles

Choosing only seven was quite the challenge. I follow so many "kreativ" blogs. GOD BLESS YOU ALL!

Seven things about me:

1)I grew up primarily being raised by my maternal grandparents. My parents were a part of my life, however, my grandparents are primarily responsible for the person I am today. My parents were very young when I was born (mother 15, father 19). They were married, but clearly children attempting to raise children.

2)I love all aspects of GOD's creation. My dream is to live anywhere placing me with both a mountain and ocean view all wrapped into one.

3)Writing is a passion. I began writing at age 12. Writing is therapy for me. It is embedded into my being. My greatest fear is losing my vision and being unable to read and write.

4)I love "alone" time! I yearn for time alone with GOD and I am not a nice person if I do not get it.

5)I eat all foods accept for "liver" and "jello."

6) I am an animal lover as most of you know, however I am EXTREMELY AFRAID of mice. If you want to see me act like a complete fool, let a teeny tiny mouse loose. I will make my way onto your shoulders until it is extracted from my midst.

7)As long as I can remember, I wanted to be Mary Tyler Moore when I grew up. I wanted a 64 1/2 mustang convertible, too.

For those of you who did not know how crazy I am. You now have a glimpse into the crazy life of Andrea. I hope each of you will enjoy this award and continue to live out the "kreativ" life.

Blessed Beyond Comprehension,

Congrats on the award! I love the awards that require you to tell us more about you. I feel like I know you better today. :) And I like you! :)

Oh, number 4 is me too! I need down time ALONE each day or I'm cranky! My husband gets this and respects it. My kids know this, but it is harder for them to leave me in peace for at least an hour. At the end of the day, I may retreat to our bedroom, but usually within 15 minutes someone is laying on the bed next to me. If I'm reading, I may tell them they can stay as long as they're quiet. This is much easier for my younger son than my older son! Congrats on your award!

Thanks so much, Andrea, for your supportive words.
I am actually in quite a bit of pain from my tooth extraction this a.m. and will be laying down soon. Hopefully the meds will help soon.

Congratulations on your award. You are such a sweet and gentle spirit. Have a nice day.

Congrats on your award. Loved reading a little more about you! I don't like liver either...yuck. And mice, don't even go there because I will go jump on a chair.

I don't mind pet rats or pet mice, but I don't like the wild ones.

Charlotte said...

Congratulations on the award. I agree with you on liver and mice. lol
I'm sorry the video wouldn't play for you. I tried playing it and it didn't play for me either. I posted it again and now it plays for me. I hope it keeps working.

Mice creep me out, too. Mary Tyler Moore is a favorite also. Keep writing, my good friend, I love to read your thoughts.

Congratulations on this award!

Love ya,

Laurie said...

Congrats sweet sister! I love your list and learning more about you. I love alone time, too, though sometimes I forget what it is... ha ha! I move this Saturday. Though I am a bit distant at this time, I think about you and Mary often! Blessings, Laurie

Congratulations on your Kreativ Blogger award Andrea.
Growing up I always wanted an old Mustang - a '66 or a '67. When I was dating my dear husband, he gave me a model of one!

Blessings to you!
