Making Lemonade


I'm feeling loved today, because Freddae' over at Coffee, God and Me awarded Graceful the Lemonade Stand Award, for demonstrating "great attitude and gratitude." I know, can you believe it? Me? This is my first blogger award, so I am quite excited.

So, I'm new to this blogger award thing, but there are a few rules that go along with the Lemonade Stand Award, as follows:
  • Put the Lemonade logo on your blog or within your post.
  • Nominate at least 10 blogs with great attitude or gratitude.
  • Link the nominees within your post.
  • Let the nominees know they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
  • Share the love and link to the person from whom you received this award.
Today I'm passing along the esteemed Lemonade Stand Award to the following blogs, which I read and reap inspiration from regularly:

Take the time to spend a few minutes with each of these bloggers -- or better yet, follow them regularly like I do. You'll be glad you did!

You're a gem! God has brought so many new people into my life lately that are encouraging, and you are one of them!

Hi Michelle! Thanks so much for the acknowledgment! I really appreciate your kind comments, in regards to this award but also all of the other times you've been so thoughtful in the comments you've left on my posts.

I am always the one who breaks the chain letters or anything related to pass-it-ons (I know! Boo me.), but I am going to put a link to your blog on my Boy Crazy Blogger page - a list of blogs written by other boy-mamas. :) I'll link this comment directly to that page so you can check it out, and feel free to grab the badge if you want it, too.

Thanks again. And happy new year!!

-Elizabeth

Michelle! Thanks so much for such a fun award! I echo what's already been said...you are an awesome writer and I am blessed to have "found" you.

Thank you, Michelle! I've so enjoyed following your blog (it takes away a little of the sting of not being able to see you every week anymore). It's an honor to be in the same category with the other blogs you listed. I've seen many of them because you've linked to them before or have them on your blog roll, and they're creative, thought provoking writers, every one.
