nice matters and courageous blogger awards…

Saturday, August 11th, 2007

I always say I have the very best bloggy friends, well… this past week Kat gave me the nice matters award and Janeen gave me the courageous blogger award.

It’s time to pass these along!

“This award is for those bloggers who are nice people; good blog friends and those who inspire good feelings and inspiration. Also for those who are a positive influence on our blogging world. Once you’ve been awarded please pass it on to others who you feel are deserving of this award.”

I imagine before long everyone will have this but here are my nominations… Tori, Susan, Sheryl, Kim, Dena, Jodi, Mandalyn, Judi, Karen, Carrie, Irene, Marcia, K.C., and JennaG. I would also add Kat and Jill had they not already received this award.

Janeen had this to say… Annie: Annie is such a sweet and gentle soul. But she is a fierce momma when it comes to her children and especially Izzy. Her love and belief in Izzy amazes me. Annie you are a wonderful person and an excellent mom.

Thanks Janeen, you are such a sweet bloggy friend!

This award is a little harder to pass on. I went to the root of the award to read about who should be given this award. It said this “For those bloggers who are battling or have battled with physical or mental illness, those who are survivors of abuse, poverty, or who have overcome other challenges in life. Those who serve in the military or work/volunteer in dangerous situations in order to provide a service or to help others. This award is for the strong, the brave, and the courageous.”

I’m not sure my group falls directly in this category, but I find them to be courageous bloggers anyway (in no particular order)…

OhAmanda… she is courageously putting things on her blog that are not world friendly, but she is more concerned with God’s word than the world and I think this makes her one courageous blogger!

Jessica is a courageous blogger. Her blog gives updates on her sweet little girl ME. She is now pregnant with another little baby and is dealing with medical issues with sweet ME. She approaches these medical issues with courage and I enjoy visiting her blog often.

CoachJ… she puts her heart out there on her blog. I think it is very courageous of her to open herself up to the blog world.

Jenny (Gus’ Gang) … she has taken the loss of her beautiful baby boy and made a blog to help spread information about other children needing prayers. She is very courageous in her day to day postings and I love her for that.

D.J. has been going through a lot of medical issues with her hand and has continued to praise God and keep a courageous attitude.

Julie is my irl friend who has seven children. I think having seven children puts you into the courageous category instantly!!! Julie has courage and has overcome a lot of things in her life.

Michelle is a courageous blogger. We all love reading about and especially seeing the adorable pics of Kayla, but Michelle is courageous in her attitude and has connected with so many bloggers! She is such a sweet courageous blogger.

Tammy (Parker’s mom) is so courageous! She is dealing with a lot of medical issues with sweet little Parker, I continue to lift this family up in prayer and hope you will too. It takes more than just courage to deal with things Tammy is dealing with now.

You can take these awards to your place now and pass them on!
