How Sweet and Unexpected!

I was so surprised and excited to receive the "The Stylish and Trendy Blog Award" from a my sweet blogging friend Janet over @ Janet and Marvins Life.  I just adore her blog-she is so filled with the love of Jesus and she just down to earth and so kind. She always leaves the sweetest comments on my blog.  I always enjoy reading her blog and hearing from her on mine-she would be one I would nominate as well (but I didn't think she would want to do this all over again-(smile).)
Now, I really don't think my blog is that stylish or trendy (sometimes I can barely figure out what I am doing on here) but she was kind enough to nominate me and I was thrilled.

These are the Rules for accepting this award

1. Link back to the person who gave you this award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Pass it along to 7 other stylishly and trendy bloggers.
4. Contact those bloggers and tell them about their award.

Here are 7 things about myself.

1.  I am blessed to be the mom of 4 beautiful kids.
2.  I was born and raised in New York and now live in Texas!
3.  I was a live in nanny when I was 18-21 in Philadelphia. 
4.  I became a Christian at the age of 15 even though I was always raised in the church-praise God that He allowed me to see the difference in knowing who God is and KNOWING God as very personal Savior.
5.  I love Dr. Pepper-Dislike Peas immensely and could live on nothing but Chocolate.   
6.  I love reading Karen Kingsbury or Francine Rivers Novels. 
7.  One dream I always wanted was to be a Christian Singer-oh well, you can't have them all-I always wanted to be a wife and mom first and God gave me both of those.

The 7 bloggers that I pass this award on to are listed below in no particular order.  Each one of these women have greatly impacted my life with their friendships.  They all have wonderful blogs that make me want to seek to be a better Christian-to grow in my faith and to love my Lord with all my heart.  I thank each one of them for their BLOGS full of encouragement, inspiration and blessings and their comments, prayers, and friendships since I have been blogging.   








Please stop over and see how you can be blessed by these ladies.

On this Pathway-

Oh, Jill, I could live on chocolate, too. :) But, my drink would be Coke. HA And a nanny? How neat! Blessings to you!
