Awards Aplenty

Apparently last week was the week for awards because I received several. And so, here they are:
This award was given to me from Sharon. I can't seem to find any information about this award, but given the name I assume it is to be given to people who lift you up. Thank you Sharon! I can always find encouraging uplifting words at Sharon's blog, so it's an honor that she passed this award on to me.

I don't see any rules about how many people I can give this to, so I am passing this onto to four people, as four is a nice even number, and I do like even numbers. And so, I pass this You Lift Me Up award on to:
Diary of a Caregiver

This Mathetes award was given to me by Grams. I honestly had no idea what the word Mathetes meant, so I looked at Dan King's blog, Management by God to learn more about this award that he created. In his words, "Mathetes is the Greek word for disciple, and the role of the disciple (per the Great Commission) it to make more disciples. In the spirit of this award, the rules are simple. Winners of this award must pick five other "disciples" to pass it on to. As you pass it on, I just ask that you mention and provide links for (1)this post as the originator of the award (Dan King of management by God), (2) the person that awarded it to you, and then (3) name and sites of the five that you believe are fulfilling the role of a disciple of Christ." Wow Grams- what a compliment! Thank you so much for this lovely award!

I am passing this Mathetes award on to:
A Joyful Journey
Mindless Chatter of a Busy Mom
My Quotidian Mysteries
My Spot of Blog
Notes From the Laundry Pile

This Egel Nest Award for Blog Excellence was given to me from ZAM. This award was created by Brad Egel as a way to honor your friends who you think have excellent blogs. Thank you ZAM for this award!

I don't see any guidelines for this one either, so I will pass it on to four people. So, I am awarding the Egel Nest Award for Blog Excellence to:

And finally, I received this award from Sharon and from Kelly. This award was designed by Mike At Ordinary Folk and was originally offered by Christy of Totally Fabulous. She says the award is for “bloggers who are fun, cool, and of course Totally Fabulous!” Thank you Sharon and Kelly for thinking I'm fun, cool, and totally fabulous! You ladies are pretty great yourselves.

Again, I'm passing this Totally Fabulous award on to four people:
Enjoy your awards ladies!!
