My First Award!

What a fun surprise!!! I am so honored to have been given the Lemonade Award for having an "attitude of gratitude" by my bloggy friend Executive Momma! When I found her blog, From Suits to Diapers, I really identified with her story. She is where I was about 12 years ago, in the beginning stages of the transition from career to being home with a precious baby boy!

As part of the award, I have to nominate 10 more bloggers. {Additional rules are below.} I have chosen some sweet ladies I know in real life, and a few big-time bloggers who inspire me. I am relatively new to blog-land, but I do enjoy the community!

Jenny (The first blog I ever read, and a super-sweet friend!)

Melanie (A sweet friend who comments on my every post! Such an encouragement!!)

Celia (This woman is love. I am so blessed to know her!)

Elizabeth (Such a bundle of encouragement, energy, & WOMANHOOD!)

Jessica (Creative, beautiful & giving!)

Dawn (One of the first to welcome me to Charlotte & to her MOPS group!)

Gil (Ok, this is my husband! He has a new blog!!)

The Nester (I got hooked on her blog last summer and was inspired to start my own!)

Jen (I feel like I know her! I want to know her!)

Emily (Beautiful writing and photography!)

Kim (So generous and informative!)

Jennifer (Wow, her work is gorgeous! And she is so nice, too!)

I am honored that someone thinks I display an attitude of gratitude. Life is no where near perfect, but I do feel so blessed. I am thankful for my dear husband and wonderful kids. Even as we face challenges, I hope I look for the blessings and opportunities. I also want to be of service and an encouragement to my family and others. I can do none of this in my own strength, however. My hope and my strength comes from the Lord. I pray that I continually give Him the glory.
