Daily Dose…Who, me?

Ok, so here’s the deal…

I have been surfing all through bloggy land the last couple of days and seeing so many really awesome chicks get this really cool AWARD called the Daily Dose. I have posted my congrats and well wishes on a lot of them and truly believe that each one of those chicks really deserve the award.

I am blown away, blessed beyond all belief, or as my buddy Sue (at Praise and Coffee) would say…”Blessed my socks off” by the three cool chicks that have given me this award.

The award was originated by Xandra from Heart of Service, and here are her words for this award:
…it’s for blogs that I must read every day without fail . . . They make you laugh, cry, think and feel connected every time you read a post. They give you a thrill as you see them loading into your browser and you get an equally satisfying thrill when you see that they have commented on your blog.”

Seriously…Check out the super nice things they said about me, and no honey (dh) I didn’t give them any money…

– Hope from Monkey Giggles passed it along (love her…) There are so many good ones… there are scores of talented, inspiring, uplifting and creative mommy bloggers , how could I just pick one? I CAN’T . (Hope, you are so sweet and so super talented…thank you for thinking of me!)

– Linda from Mocha with Linda said,
Mel’s World with Melissa Mashburn Melissa appears to have more energy in her little finger than I do in my entire being. Her blog is as effective as a double-shot of espresso. I knew I would connect with her when I saw that she, too, put Mary Poppins as one of her favorite movies. She’s supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! (Linda, were we separated at birth…seriously, anyone who loves Mary Poppins is alright in my book!)

– Maria at Free to Fly said,
Mel at Mel’s World. She is such a funny, savvy wife and mother. Awesome faith and winsome presentation. (thank you Maria, you are too kind!)

– And also my friend Karen over in Karen’s Ramblings said this,
Mel is vibrant and radiates joy, passions and life in abundance. I recently read Holly Wagner’s “God Chicks” and thought – wow, Holly sounds like Mel – or is it the other way round? Either way, Mel if you are speaking at a Conference or writing a book – let me know so that I can be there.She is infectious with her faith and vibrancy! (Karen, I will let you know as soon as I go out on tour…what a great way for us to finally meet! Thank you for reaching out and being such a blessing to me.)

So, now I have the honor to pass this award on to some of my must read “Daily Dose” blogs…

1- Jennifer at Nickernoodle’s Nonsense – she has one cute blog, her charm and realness (is that a word?) bring me back.
2- Sharon at Sharon’s Quiet Reflections – she is a great women’s chick. She can preach it and teach it in a way that is not overbearing or arrogant. She is kind and approachable.
3 – Bonnie at Simple Beauty – she is a fabulous “artist!” Her pictures and stories from Austrailia keep me coming back for more.
4 – My Friend Ivy at Ivy’s Mind – she is a close buddy of mine, and since she has started to blog she has started to BLOOM. I love reading her little “cuban” accent in what she writes, but more importantly I love reading her heart.
5 – Holly at Crown Laid Down – Man, that woman should preach. She has a heart of fire for God and you feel it every time you pop over to her site.
6 – My Buddy Juliana at Just Juliana – she is another close buddy to me, and even though she doesn’t blog very often when she does it is real, it is honest, and it is her…that’s why I love it!

There are so many more AMAZING Blog’s that I read each and every day but as I was going through my list I noticed that a lot of them already have the award and it would seem silly to give them the same award again and again.

To each and every blogger out there…Thank you all for the way you inspire me, challenge me, and teach me more and more every day about yourself, your families, and your faith in our AMAZING God!

Had my socks blessed off,
