Raining (Awards) In The Desert

It’s raining in the desert!

…Raining some very wonderful awards from the WordPress community, that is..! I’m not complaining though…quite the opposite..! I am thrilled, honored, elated, grateful and very, very blessed to be part of such a wonderful world of blogging people. Thank you ALL so much!

Now, to spare everyone multiple award posts, I have bundled them up in one happy little winter package and hope it is okay that I share them all together. I like posting them this way because I get to create a longer list of blogs to check out all in one place. I wish it were possible to just nominate ALL of the bloggers I interact with here but time and space make that impossible! 

Without further ado…I accept and in turn, pass along, the following awards –  

Thanks so very much to Fictional Machines for bestowing the Reality Blog Award on me! I am grateful & honored.


The award requires me to answer the following questions:

1. If you could change something what would you change?

 The damage humankind has done to this planet.

 2. If you could repeat an age, what age would it be?

  No time travel for me, thanks.  I’m not into repetition or taking my lessons all over again!

 3. What one thing really scares you?

 The seemingly unconquerable division that exists among people.

 4. What one dream have you not completed yet and do you think you will be able to complete it?

 To move out of this godforsaken dust-patch to somewhere that feels more like home. And yes!

 5. If you could be someone else for a day, who would you be?

 Hrm…being Amelia Earhart for a day might’ve been a real kick!

 Nominating others is always the hard part since I follow so many excellent blogs…there is no way to choose just a few favorites. So, in no particular order, I’d like to pass this award along to…

Thanks a million to The Other Side of Ugly for passing along the Illuminating Blogger Award to me. If you aren’t already a follower, go soak in some of the peace and beauty that radiates from her page!

The rules of this award are:

1. Visit and thank the blogger who nominated you

2. Say a few words of gratitude on your blog and follow the link

3. Share a few words about yourself and pass on the Award to at minimum 5 other bloggers…

A few words about me:

As a kid/teen I swore I was never going to have any kids at all…so of course, life made sure that I ended up with 2 kids of my own and 3 step-kids to boot…never say never, folks…

I proposed to my husband instead of waiting for a proposal from him.

I am fluent in the language of Pig Latin thanks to my grandpa who not only taught me the language…but did so while teaching me to playing dominos. End result is that I can count and add in Pig Latin, too!

Passing along the award love…
