Well hush your mouth and keep on talkin’! I’m thrilled to have been nominated for The Versatile Blogger Award by my new cyber buddy Rob of weight2lose2013! He has been Captain of the welcome committee for me and I greatly appreciate his hospitality as I’ve only been blogging a little over a week! It’s not easy being new anywhere so Rob…thanks again! Everyone, please be sure to visit his blog and show him some love!

He mentioned award nominations are also a good way to get to know other bloggers and he was right. However in order for me to authentically nominate another blogger, I had to familiarize myself with their work so I took time to do that. Needless to say I found quite a few gems!

Now let’s see…
The Rules:

° Show the award on your blog (roger that)
° Thank the person who nominated you (my pleasure)
° Share seven facts about yourself (more challenging than I thought)
° Nominate fifteen blogs (honored to do so)
° Link the nominees blogs and let them know (ah wherefore art thou WP tutorials)

Seven Facts About Me:

1. I’m an extrovert with very strong introvert tendencies

2. I’m extremely addicted to quotes

3. I have very long locs (which others call dreadlocks or dredlocks) and I utterly DETEST when fascinated people touch my hair without permission. It’s the equivalent of the stranger who just sneezed, catching snot in hand while coming out of a Greyhound bus terminal bathroom stall only to walk past the sink in order to rub a pregnant woman’s stomach.

4. I have a burden for those that are hurting, bitter, ignored, hopeless, weary, backslidden, depressed, voiceless, overlooked, suicidal and have been hurt by the church (not necessarily in that order)

4. I love God with all my heart but as an unashamed member of His “public relations team” I’m keenly aware we have a tendency to suck

5. I’ve been married to a professional musician for almost 17 years (yes I have stories for days and as a result have often wondered if the Lord does stand up comedy on the side)

6. We have two children who we refer to as our miracles

7. I prefer Mayo over Miracle Whip. Don’t you?
