Thinking Blogger Award


Dana, from Rare and Beautiful Treasures, awarded me with the Thinking Blogger Award. It is an honor that my humble ramblings and experiences have made an impression even in one other's mind. Thank you Dana for taking the time to read my blog.

The rules are to tag five other blogs that make you think. In addition:
1. If, and only if, you are tagged, write a post with five links to blogs that make you think.
2. Link to this post so people can find the exact origin of the meme.
3. Optional: Proudly display the "Thinking Blogger Award" with a link to the post that you wrote. Here are 2 versions to choose from:


These are the following bloggers I have tagged this award with. I don't normally take the time to comment on blogs, so this might come as a surprise to those I am tagging this award with. However, these are the 5 blogs that have made an impression on my mind from my very first visit.:

This blog is no longer on line, but I want to remember it here because Mrs. Q and Candy were very encouraging. Mrs. Q, from Homemaking with Mrs. Q, was the first blog that I regularly read. If there was one cyber-space woman who was like a mentor to me, it was Mrs. Q. Her posts were very ordinary and usually just about her day. However, just by her posts, I was encouraged by her life. She exemplified that Proverbs 31 woman. I don't know whatever happened to Mrs. Q. One day I went to read her blog and it was no more. However, I wanted to award her with this because she was one woman who did make me think and re-evaluate how I am a keeper at home. (Thanks to Susan, from With Heart and Hand...By Grace, I was able to locate Mrs. Q and properly tag her new site, Clothesline Talk.)

Moggy, from My Life is a Cartoon, always makes my day with her sense of humor. Her posts are short and light hearted and always accompanied by a cartoon, but a lot of the times, they are very thought provoking and make me go "hmmm".

Mrs. Wilt, from The Sparrow's Nest, reminds me of a Stepford wife or another Martha Stewart! Her blog is homey and inviting and posts range from stories like "The Daffodil Principle" to subjects like fashion and home interior design. Mrs. Wilt carries an elegance to her and is an encouragement to other women not to be shy about the womanhood that God created us into. Yet, she also exemplifies that excellent wife as described in the Bible and creates a safe haven for her husband and children and though their thoughts are not heard, it is obvious that Mrs. Wilt is praised by them.

Amy, from Amy's Humble Musings, says that she is an aspiring Proverbs 31 lady and her posts prove that to be true. She has 5 children and she documents a lot of tips she has found to be helpful in her household, especially about saving time and money. Amy's experiences have given her much wisdom and there is much to learn from her.

Lastly, I would like to tag my friend Trish, from Tah Dah. Trish actually has 2 sites, the second being Beneath the Couch Cushions. I actually chose Tah Dah because of the creativity that is displayed in this blog. I am always impressed by Trish's God given gift and it is evident by the hand made cards that are posted on this blog. These hand made crafts sometimes take my breath away and make me think, "Wow"!

Thank you Dana for tagging my blog.

I think I might know where Mrs. Q's blog is now - it's called At Home With Elizabeth - http://athomewithelizabeth.blogspot.com/index.html Was Candy a dog? If so, this is the same lady. I love her too, and I just found her again after looking for her for a while. Enjoy!

Hi Dana,
Thank you for your kind words. When I went to the beta blog I hit the wrong button and deleted my old delete so I had to start over. I am so glad you found me. I am working on getting my favorites updated.
Hugs,
Elizabeth
