I was very touched to receive another award nomination last week: a humbling Beautiful Mama Blog Award. I wish to thank one of my wonderful followers http://futureflyingsaucers.wordpress.com for this honor. I’m quite certain my poor children might have second thoughts on this one, but in my defense, I believe I actually got better with time. Please check out Flying Saucers blog because I guarantee you’ll enjoy it!
There are some things I’m supposed to do to justify posting this award. They are: share three things I love about motherhood and then nominate as many other mothers who blog as I want.
As per the rules, I can tell you three things I enjoyed about Motherhood:
It’s satisfying when you drag your children kicking and screaming to an event and afterwards they shuffle the ground with their feet and mumble, “Thanks Mom, that was actually fun.”
- That it’s a “in our humanity” justifying emotion, hearing your daughter gripe about things that her daughter does that we actually endured with her! This too shall pass . . . my sweet thing . . .
- That as a grandmother, I can rectify many wrongs that occurred when as a Mom, I was too young and impatient to endure at the time. Praise God for His redemptive grace and loving children! How grateful I am to God for them!
Now on to the nominations: I have many wonderful followers who are terrific mothers, so I’m missing plenty, but I’d like to nominate the following and hope they’ll accept:
I’d also like to nominate http://farmfoodieandfitness.com even though I realize she’s extremely busy and might not be able to pass it on. If anyone is actually too busy to accept, it’s no big deal. I wanted the blogging world to know that you’re all amazing mothers with terrific sites! You can nominate one or many others – there’s no pressure with this particular award, it’s just fun. I do hope it draws others to your page!
(And if http://storyland4.wordpress.com/ hadn’t already been nominated, I would have, because of her family devotion and steadfast, unwavering spirit to conquer Joshua and Caleb sized mountains in her life! Nothing defeats this woman!)
