Some of my favorites

These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these kind writers. When you pass the award along please include these guidelines. I am to choose eight friends to share this with.

Last month, I received this Friendship Award from my blogger friend Bonnie. Bonnie and I have never met, she lives many, many miles from where I live. She became a faithful reader of Sippycups and Fingerprints and I am always happy to read her comments. I recently became a follower of her blog Where did all this come from?

I am required to pass this award on to 8 bloggers. I have decided to modify this just a bit and nominate others as I come across blogs I really do love and read often. So, for now here are 3 blogs to get you started, I hope you check them out and like what you read.

I recently came across this blog through another blog and honestly, have no idea how I got to Living with Lindsay, but that's the neat thing about this little blogging world I am now apart of. As soon as I read one post from this blog, I knew I would be a follower. She's a DIY blogger of so many simple, yet beautiful things, this is my favorite. Just reading her blog makes me feel crafty.

I have been a reader of Short Stop for several months. Sarah first found my blog though Facebook. I love reading her blog, because her writing style makes me laugh. Post about recipes will even make you laugh, but she also has some REALLY funny stories, like this one.

Elizabeth and I have never met in person. She and her husband went to college with my hubby. We recently caught up with them through Facebook and I do hope to meet them soon. Reading Elizabeth's blog, I am blown away by their commitment to encourage their daughter's desire to help others. Their example to be the hands and feet of Jesus as a family is amazing. All of us want our children to be compassionate and sacrificial, but I wonder how many of us would be willing to invest the time, money and to make the sacrifices, to see our children's passions happen.
