★★ Beautiful Blogger Award ★★

Judy, from Benmakesten gave this Beautiful Blogger Award to me today. I am very much honored to receive this, as the one who gave it is an admirable peson, whose strength and commitment as a Mother of 10 spans the universe. Thanks, Judy, you are one amazing blogger Mom-friend!

As a recipient of the Beautiful Blogger Award, one must:

- Add a link and a note of thanks to the person giving the award
- Pass the award on to 15 bloggers whose blogs you have recently discovered that you love
- Share 7 things about yourself

So here goes the 7 Things about myself that I want to share with you: (They're randomly thought of)

1. I am a Filipina with two loving children and one great husband, but whose entire family (meaning my Dad, Mom & Stepdad, Sister & Bro in law) resides in the US of A.

2. I am a Type 2 Diabetic, who tries hard to manage it well because I love to eat good food, adore sweet food, and can live on potato chips with dip daily. =)

3. I became a Christian when I was in College -- through a friend from Campus Crusade for Christ. Since then, I discovered, that life can, after all, be a worthwhile journey IF you go through it with the Lord, and allow Him to hold and maneuver the reins for you.

4. I love books and love to read and collect inspirational ones, including Bibles. Just recently, DH gifted me with The Message Bible and I just love this version! I like the way it "speaks" to me in modern, everyday, conversational language.

5. As much as I love kids and teaching, I also love dogs, and treat them as part of the family.

6. I've shared it before, but would like to share it again -- I pray to become the Proverbs 31 woman someday. I know I am a seemingly endless work of art, and a certified (God's) work in progress. I know one day I will get there and trust that God will help me achieve this goal.

7. I love coffee, and the aroma it leaves in the whole household when DH and I share a mug or two. Given the choice, I would take a barrel of coffee everyday. But for health reasons, a mug or a cup should be fine. =)

I now send this Beautiful Blogger Award to the following 15 bloggers, whose blogs I have recently discovered and have been enjoying immensely ---

1. Doylene @ A Gracious Home

2. Ruth @ Celebrate Friendship

3. Ann @ The I-Sisters

4. Anni @ Hootin' Anni's

5. Pia @ Pia's Journal

6. Kathy @ Blooming in Suburbia

7. Joyce Marie @ A Fistful of Dandelions

8. Audrinna @ Audrinna's World

9. Gae @ Cherished Hearts at Home

10. Amber @ Amber Waves of Grain

11. Tamara @ Branch of Wisdom

12. Jo @ Little House by the Railway Line

13. Katia @ My Cup Overflows

14. Buff @ My Daybook

15. Patricia @ Pausing to Consider

Congratulations to each of you! May God continue to bless us all through this bond called friendship. =)

  15. Ruth, am so guilty in not being able to check well if I was able to inform all of you guys about this post/award. Cathy (A Bit of the Blarney) was also one of those I wasn't able to send a notice to for another award. Sometimes I fail to check if my message was able to "get in..."

    But as they say, better late than never! :) Have a beautiful weekend and God bless!
