"A" is for "award" and for "Amy" and "awww!"

So, yes. I'm famous now.

Not really, but I have received my first shout out in the blog world from someone who doesn't live within 20 miles of me. (SJB, that disclaimer was for you. I very much appreciate how often you credit me on Hostage Negotiation.)


One of my favorite blogs to follow is Chapters, written by Amy. She's honest, vulnerable, and funny, not to mention gorgeous, sweet, and someone I really think I'd be friends with "in real life" if we lived closer.

Apparently, Amy doesn't think I'm half bad either, because she gave me this earlier this week:

Amy thinks I'm an "A+ Blogger"!!!

Nothing qualified me for this award, unlike some other awards that have, you know, actual criteria, but still, I was flattered. And in the spirit of paying it forward, here are the "rules" and my awardees:

1. You should pay it forward to 2 other blogger and let them know they won

2. You should give them a compliment

3. You should thank your giver

4. You should post your award for the world to see!

So, I award Brittani because she took to blogging like a champ, has stayed faithful to it, and never fails to show the world how much she loves her husband and son, and I award Sara, because she also has been a faithful "newbie" blogger (more faithful than me, even!) and because I just love her. But, sad for you, dear reader, Sara's blog is private. Don't you wish you were cool enough to be her friend?

So, thank you Amy, and congrats, Brit and Sara!

I started reading your blog when I saw your Random "What Makes Me Happy" link on BooMamma's blog. (Love her!) Anyway...I just wanted to thank you for sharing baby Isaac's story with us. I have been reading their blog and praying for Isaac's family. I just noticed that you are from Northwest Ohio, (although aparently, not for much longer). I, too, am an Ohioan...Northwest even! I have a ministry for mothers and families who have lost a baby. ( We are sending a Dreams of You package to Isaac's family. I pray it will be a comfort to them. I hope all goes well with your house-selling plans.

God Bless,
