welcome friends.....thanks for popping in my world....
I'd love to know you've stopped by, so please note that the comment section is now found at the title of each post.

Prayers, Works for Me Wednesday....plus an AWARD!

Before I get into the WFMW, I would like to take a moment to ask that you say a prayer for Baby Stellan....
Prayers for Stellan
If you click on his photo, it will bring you to McKMama's blog and you can be updated on his condition. If there ever was a testimony of keeping the faith during the trials in this life....this is the place to read about it. It reminds us of Who is in control, Who we serve.....and Who we need to completely trust in everything.

So I wanted to jump in on the Works For Me Wednesday fun over at We are That Family's place.....and I thought it would be a great way to see if anyone wanted to join in on the "Pay it Forward" fun I talked about Monday.

So scroll down to Monday's post or click here to see if you'd like to check it out! :)

And another thing that "works for me" this Wednesday.....

I got my first second blogging award from my blogging buddy Karen! WOOT WOOT WOOT!!! (apparently I completely goofed because sweet Tiff gave me my first award....I have to blame it on a long week even though it's only Wednesday) I have been practicing my parade wave and I have a special tiara that my friend Amanda sent to me from the Pay it Forward fun. I am planning on snapping a pic of that later today (after my dready hair is tamed down and I make sure I have nothing stuck in my teeth)

The rules say I have to list 7 things I love and then pass it on to 7 bloggers I love. No problemo...

1. Of course......#1 is Jesus. That goes without saying!

2. My bestest friend in the whole world, my husband Josh....we have been together for 18+ years and are stronger/happier than ever. We have had our share of valleys, but have risen up even higher on the mountain each time. I think one of the main reasons we have been able to get this far is the gift of laughter. We still crack each other up. I always tell my kids that the secret to knowing if someone is "The One" is if they are your best friend and can make you laugh. And of course I can add my children on to this one.....my family is my life!

The next three are in no particular order and need no further explaining.

3. nachos

4. LOST (which is on tonight and always includes a platter of #3)

5. taking a hot bath with candles burning on a winter night and then jumping into warm cozy flannel sheets.

6. gardening (digging in the earth soothes the soul)

7. bargain shopping, thrift stores, yard sales. I even have a little song I sing in the car along the way!

So now I am going to pass this award onto 7 blogging buddies who I love to pop in their world......I know there are more than 7, so I am just gonna do a random off the top of my head and please keep in mind that this is 6 AM and I am only on my first cup of coffee.....so don't be offended if I did choose you.

Tiff (4under3)
Big Mama
Brandi Wilson
Catherine Wheels
Hurricane Heather
He + Me plus 3

ooooooops, that is eight.....oh well, I told you it was too early for me to think straight.

So all you need to do is let people know who gave you the award.......*batting eyelashes*.....and pass it along to 7 other blogging friends who make you smile. :)

Have fun and think about joining in on the Pay it Forward fun I am trying to set up...

I love:
a) nachos
b) eating nachos on the couch(in front of AIdol)
c)digging into the earth
d) thrift stores
e) and hot baths with candles (well, you already knew that)

...gosh. I could have just said, "ditto" to your favorites. That would have been much easier.

Thanks for the award.

Mu-ah (That was me blowing a kiss.)
