The other day I was checking out my favorite blogs and saw that Magi has awarded me a Thinking Blogger Award. Wow!! Magi and I adopted our daughters at the same time. We were together on the first and last part of our trip to China. After months of reading her blog it was a pleasure to meet her in person. I am very flattered by the things you said about me. Thank you.
Here are five blogs that I love and make me think.
1) Monica at The Homespun Heart is the first blog I read everyday. If it takes place in the home you will find it here. From reading her blog it is evident that she is organized, crafty, kind, caring, and very giving. She definately knows how to follow through on a theme! She inspires me to be a better wife, mother, homekeeper and most importantly a better Christian.
2) Christy at The Abundant Life is a very deep thinker. I don't comment on her blog as often as I should, but she really makes me think about the bigger things in life.
3) Sandra at Jazzie and Tahlia. She a mom to two beautiful little girls. Both of her daughters happen to be from China. She has shared very personal things. Her older daughter Jazzie is deaf. They had no idea she as deaf until she was placed with them. She also shares her post-adoption struggles she has had with Tally. Just amazing that she is willing to open up and share some really personal things.
4) MaryAnn at Mrs. MaryAnn's House. MaryAnn shares tidbits about her daily life. She has opened up about her struggles with living on one income and ways she budgets, especially on groceries.
5)Meredith at Like Merchant Ships. This is one frugal lady. She has a good eye for bargains and thrifting. She has been able to decorate her home on mainly thrift items and it looks great! She inspires think about how I spend my money.
