I am humbled by your thoughtfulness!

You all just floor me. I have 3 awards to receive and give away today. Every time I receive one of these I think, "Are you sure you got the right blog? LOL." Thank you all for reading my blog and contributing to it with your wonderful comments. A lot of times your comments are more entertaining then my actual post lol. I love the women that this blog has attracted. It just goes to show that I'm not the only one out there that has a weird sense of humor, loves the Lord, and has kids that can and do drive them nuts. The blogs I follow are so different and yet similar in so many ways. But I could go on and on about you guys but I have to give away these 3 awards and I need to try and do it right and do them justice. So here it goes.

This first one came from flmom @ The Narrow Path. Thank you so much for this. Flmom is probably one of the most real bloggers I know. She doesn't sugar coat a bad day and I love reading about her gardening and homeschooling projects. Now if you would just tell me your first name lol.

  4. Kimmy,

    I love ya girl! Thank you for giving me the Uber Award again...silly girl, Sunny gave it to us both on her post! I know it's hard to keep up with all the awards flying around and all.

    Precious friend, you deserve all of these and anything else wonderful that comes your way ~ you have the gift of laughter and encouragement and apparently I'm not the only one benefiting from it!

    ((hugs)) to you

  5. WOW!!! You sure do know some fantastic women! I am going to enjoy coming back again and again and reading some blogs and getting to know more about these women that have touched you in some way. Thanks so much for including me in the list... I am honored an HUMBLED and excited!!!

    You rick little missy!

    God bless-

  6. Congrats. on all those awards. You deserve each and every one of them. You have such a fun and lovely blog.

    Funny, Debra gave me the Marie Antoinette award too, and although I saw that she gave it to you, I fully intended to give it to you as well. Now, I will reference both of you when I post this award.

    Thanks so much. And how did you like my spiritual lessons from the oven?! Truly a goof, I know.

    Love in Christ,

  7. Awwwwwwww ... you're so sweet! I know some people haven't appreciated my being so "real" sometimes. Oh well. Life's not perfect and neither am I. I thought I had told you, but I must have forgotten - my name is easy to remember because it's the same as yours!

  8. Wow. That is some great awards. Congrats!

  9. Kim, You are so sweet! Thank you for the award and wanting to share them with us. You are very encouraging and always have just the write things to share - to make us laugh and leave with a smile.

    I just read your post below about the oven cleaning trick - good idea. I don't like that whole self cleaning mode either - our one oven in the last house almost caught on fire through that cycle. And I don't even cook in it more than a few times a year!

    Hugs and thank you again! Truly humbled you choose me and my blog!


  10. I have never heard of these awards. What are they and how do they work? Thanks, Rodna

  11. Oh my goodness,
    This is my first award. Thankyou so much. You made me cry. (Ok my kids say I cry at everything) But that was so sweet. I need to thank my family for allowing me to blog and be real with what goes on in our home. It is funny, when something happens the first thing they do is say "mamam, you aren't going to blog this are you?" And just today something happened (hint check out my blog tomorrow) I ran inside and my two oldest boys sighed and said "she's getting the camera"

    Thankyou so much for thinking of me as I am so new to blog land.

    In HIS Keeping,

    PS how do you add that cute siggy to the end of each blog???

  12. Congratulations on all your awards.

  13. Thank you so much Kim!!! That was so thoughtful and kind! :) How do I copy/paste it on my blog?!

  14. You are so kind - thank you so much!!! You deserve them!!! :)

  15. Congratulations on your awards! You deserve every one of them and more.

    Thank you so much for passing one on to me (even after I asked about your brownie-eating on Kathy's blog - LOL)! You are a wonderful friend and I appreciate it.

  16. Sister Kim,

    I think it's having kids that give us all a weird sense of humor! HA! I really think God uses children to teach us to just chill out, enjoy what He's given us, trust Him and relax! I'm so thankful that my kids have made me nuts for Christ!

    CONGRATULATIONS on all your awards! I'm so excited for you!

    I'm sooooo enjoying getting to know you better!

    Love you sister, sister!

  17. Thank you so much! I did not expect that, Seeing as I have not been posting very often. Not as much as I like. My babies keep me so busy. I will try to post mine soon! Again, thank you for the thoughtfulness!


I really appreciate the time you take to leave a comment. Thank you!
