Sisterhood Is Powerful!

Look what I got from Mo! In addition to basking in the warmth of her kind words, I get to pass this along to others.

The rules:

1. Put the logo on your blog or post.
2. Nominate up to 10 blogs which show great attitude and/or gratitude!
3. Be sure to link your nominees within your post.
4. Let them know that they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
5. Remember to link the person from whom you received your award.

So here are my self-proclaimed cyber sisters:

Book Mama. I know that after the twins, the last thing you think you need is another sister! Too bad. I check out your blog every day, hungry for news about your job situation, LS and BB, Tim, and, of course, Snowbird. I admire the integrity with which you are raising your kids, and the affection within your family.

Jenny McB. One of my first blogging buddies. She loves her cats and her knitting and her boys and her golf. I wish she posted more. She takes what's serious seriously. The rest of the world? Not so much.

Kwizgiver. Dedicated teacher, big reader, and George Clooney lover. She very generously and frankly shares her everyday joys and triumphs, and it's comforting to learn that we're more alike than we may have realized.

Lisa. Her blog is, as promised, "all snark and no pants." She's a riot. A genuinely original voice in the blogosphere, and a woman who unashamedly loves her Cookie.

Vivian. Positive and sincere and genuine, Vivian is one of the kindest bloggers I have ever encountered. I'm proud that she swings by, and always comforted when she wishes me well.

Mimi. She's both visual and verbal, both funny and sensitive. Best of all, she's royal. So if we're sisters, I get to claim royal blood!

The Silver Neurotic. First of all, she's a Beatle fan, as all the best people are. She's at such an interesting time in her life! It seems she comes upon one crossroad after another as she evolves, and always responds with a good and open heart.

Cupcake. Intense and always very involved -- whether it's with her Tommy, her Geniuses, The Pro and Secondo and The Queen, or the not-so-secret love we both share, The Boss. As with Jenny McB, this is my chance to tell you in an open forum that you should post more!


  1. I am so excited....This is my first award...ever!!!
    Thank you for the kinds words, they mean so much to me.
    You are a dear girl and I know our loving God has many good things in store for your life!

  2. Sisterhood. I love it!
    Thank you very much. I will pass this on to a host of sisters I admire and enjoy.

    I believe we may have been related in a prior life...Are you a descendant of Queen Elizabeth II?

  3. AWWW .... thank you for saying I have a unique voice out there. Mostly, I just feel like a dork rambling away. So, now I can be a unique dork too! (And yes, I loves me some cookies - all kinds! heh)

    Thank you for the award. I shall pay it forward at ye olde snarkypants.

  4. Hello, Gal,
    I'm another of Vivian's blogging "sisters". When she talked about you, I popped on by to say, "Hi!"

    I read your most recent post, too. Hope your mom is soon feeling chipper again. <3

  5. Congratulations! A well-deserved award.

  6. Thank you so much!! :-) I'm constantly nodding my head when I read your posts, you're right when you say we're alike.
