Very Inspiring Blogger Award

Kitteh Serves was sweet enough to nominate me for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award.  Shocked would be an understatement.  She has never even left a comment.  I started blogging just a way to journal and work through the crazy feelings of beginning ttwd.  I never really thought about other people reading it.  It still amazes me that they do.  

So here they are!

The Rules:
1. Display the award logo on your blog.
2. Link back to the person who nominated you.
3. State 7 things about yourself.
4. Nominate 15 other bloggers for this award and link to them.
5. Notify those bloggers of the nomination and the award’s require

7 Things About Myself:
1.  I LOVE music...I listen to all different kinds of music from
    rap, to metal, to even a bit of country :)
2.  I sing...ALL the time.  In the car, in the shower, in the  
    Kitchen, it doesn't matter where I am or who I am with.  My 
    children have picked up this trait and do it as well.
3.  I HATE winter.  I HATE the cold.  I HATE snow.  I could stay 
    inside for the entire winter, hibernating til Spring.
4.  John and I started "dating" when I was 12 yrs old.  We dated
    on and off until we married when I was 19 and he was 21.
5.  None of our friends/family know about our lifestyle or this 
    blog.  They would be shocked!
6.  It is my dream to own a Harley and be able to ride it all by 
7.  John is my first and only love of my life and I am so blessed
    to have him and our life together.

So the bloggers I have nominated are ones that have in some way left a lasting impression on me.  Each in their own way has helped John and I to form our own version of ttwd.  To them I am ever grateful for their willingness to open their hearts and minds to pour out their life to help others.  These men and women haven taken the time to answer blogs or chat or talk on the phone to pull me back from the brink of quitting.  Thank you!  It just doesn't seem adequate.

And the Nominees Are: in alphabetical order

1.  At Ian and Lillie's Place
2.  Barney Married Wilma
3.  Exploring Surrender
4.  Finally Finding Me
5.  Giggles, Grins, and Reflections
6.  Her Mischief Managed
7.  Lucy's Lunacy 
8.  My Bottom Smarts
9.  Red Booty Woman
10. Rogue's Awakening
11. Roz in his hands
12. Rules to Love By
13. Shelter In The Storm 
14. Steven and Emma 
15. The Dish with Ward and June


  1. Awww P - That was a very sweet nomination. Thank you.

    Love the facts about you - Harley huh? Hope you get your chance.


    1. You are very sweet and your comments always leave me thinking. And oh yes! I definitely want my own bike...John rides and we go on little day trips together, but I've always wanted to be able to ride alone (there may be something to that...sssshhhh!)



  2. Congratulations Poca! You shouldn't be so surprised, you share your life in an open & caring way :)

    1. Awww thanks BB! You have been very supportive and I so appreciate it


  3. Thanks, P:"> That's so very sweet :) I'll work on it tomorrow!

    1. I love our chats June! You and Ward have been a great resource to John and I. And as of late have discovered we have much in common (our little secret "^_^)



  4. Hi P, thank you for the nomination and thank you so much for your very kind words.

    Most of the time I think that what I post on my blog is mere ramblings of a mad woman LoL so I am most honoured and humbled by your words.

    I love your facts. I love music and sing all the time too. You started dating when you were 12? Wow!


    1. Well considering that I had a warning over my last post the all I was going to do was ramble and cry, etc. I think that may be why I love reading your blog so much lol!

      I do love music and singing...I think I got it from my mom and now have passed it on to our kids.

      Yes, John and I "dated" (at that time we never went anywhere) when I was 12. We had some ups and downs along the way, but always found our way back to one another :D

      Hugs back at ya!


  5. Thank you P! Your kind words are very touching.

    I am seriously considering hibernating. Not kidding!

    1. I love the way that you and MM relate to one another. The love that the two of you share is apparent in every word you write. Thank you for being so open and honest and allowing us to come along for the ride. Your advice is always so loving and gentle and I so appreciate that you take the time to offer words of wisdom and encouragement.

      Hibernating sounds devine...though a beach and some sunshine sounds even better!


  6. how cool i sing too everywhere just cant help myself lol

    1. Oh I do love music and to sing! It's funny to watch the kids doing it too. When our son was 3 or 4 he would sing in the back of the car ALL the time! The girls would get so mad at him, but I thought it was cute :)
