I'd like to thank the Academy...

I was pleasantly surprised when Roxie, a fellow blogger, recently nominated this blog for The Lemonade Award.  "The concept of the Lemonade Award is quite simple. It is all about finding people that display a great attitude and/or gratitude. In this day and time, that is very important to have. Once nominated, all you need to do is add the Lemonade Award logo to your blog and find 10 more bloggers to nominate. All of the rules are listed below."

Gratitude is something that I will happily say that I am filled with.  And that's not because I'm so spiffy, but because God rocks and He totally blesses me with a life that I seriously don't deserve. I live in a house filled with love and blessings and hilarity, a husband that is true to me, beautiful, healthy kids, and seven years of sobriety.  Seven years of clearing my head and breaking free.  I am blessed.

I'm happy to nominate the following...

Yes, I'm aware that I'm supposed to nominate ten blogs, and I only nominated 5.  I do read more blogs than that, but I wanted to nominate people who really fit into this category, and not just try to fill slots.  Two of these gals have blogged about struggling to have the right attitude lately, and I admire their willingness to talk about it.  It's not easy to be honest about our character defects.  I think that we all find it therapeutic though, when we realize we are not alone in our journey to become the women that God wants us to be.

Congratulations to the winners. Please share this opportunity with your favorite bloggers by doing the following:

1) Put the logo on your blog or post.
2) Nominate at least 10 blogs, which show great Attitude and/or Gratitude!
3) Be sure to link to your nominees within your post
4) Let them know that they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
5) Share the love and link to this post and to the person from whom you received your award.

Thanks Roxie!
