Sunshine Award

My friend Jodi gave me the Sunshine Award this week! Wow, I am honored. For the life of me, though, I can't seem to get the beautiful button for the award to show on my page. Truthfully, I don't feel that I have been all that full of sunshine lately, but I am thankful and feel blessed to share and be a part of some fun. As part of the Sunshine Award, I am to tell you 7 things about myself, and then pass the award on to 7 other bloggers. Let's give it a try!

  1. I have been married twenty years to my college sweetheart and have four children whom I teach at home. Four of my other children are in heaven waiting for me.
  2. I hate to iron, but I am finding out from girlfriends that I am not alone in that distaste. My husband now sends his shirts out. He says that eliminates marital conflict.
  3. I just learned to play Risk with my family. I have yet to win, but oh well. I enjoy playing with my kids and sweetie.
  4. I am anticipating adopting two more children domestically. I don't like waiting.
  5. I am horrible at the Wii. My son beats me every time.
  6. One of my favorite movies is Return to Me. I am a sucker for a movie at which I can both cry and laugh.
  7. My husband and I are going to begin working with the younger married couples in our church beginning this fall. I am excited to develop new friendships, encourage young parents, and mentor strong marriages.

Visit these blogs and drop them a note. I am sharing this Sunshine Award with them. I truthfully don't follow all that many blogs (my sweetie would beg to differ). I appreciate the chance to meet new people and share in their lives via blogs.

  1. Pages From my Journal (Princess's blog)
  2. Once for All (Angel's blog)
  3. Ballston Babes
  4. A Page From our Scrapbook
  5. Jennifer's Joy Ride
  6. Chatting at the Sky
  7. Holy Experience

Sorry you had trouble with the graphic! You deserve the award, you are such a kind-hearted soul. And, I always love when you blog about what you are grateful for, and that's why I chose YOU for this award!

I love how your husband sends his shirts out to "avoid marital conflict". That one was great! LOL

I also am not very good at the Wii, and all the kids beat me,oh well. ;)

Praying for you as you go through the foster/adoption's a rough road, but I know if anyone can travel it, it's you with God by your side. :)

I just saw Mimi's comment, lol. Thanks Mimi! You're sweet too! I believe I met Mimi through your blog Sandy. Thanks, I am so thankful to have you both as my bloggy friends! Too bad Mimi doesn't live near us, we could all get together!
