Beautiful Blogger Award

I started working on this post over 9 days ago! Sorry it has taken me so long to get it all together. Life is always busy and I haven't been feeling well the past few days. So here goes!

Thank You to Caroline @ The Croley Gang for giving me this award.

Here are the rules. I am to post 7 things about myself, and pass the award along to 7 beautiful bloggers.

1.) I accepted Jesus as my Savior when I was 11 years old on January 18th 1976.  I still remember a lot about that night. I am so Thankful for having the Lord in my life! He has seen me through so much!

2.) My brother Doug introduced Mike (hubby) and I to each other. We went to the same church and went to a lot of the same activities.

3.) Hubby and I started dating in May and were talking marriage by August. We were officially engaged in September. We actually bought our rings in August, but I made him wait until September to propose because we had a lot going on in my family.  I wanted things to settle down a bit before springing our engagement on my parents.

4.) Mike and I were married a year after we started dating. We have been married over 25 years now.

5.) I love the color blue and I think everything I own would be blue if I could get away with it! I probably would paint all the walls blue too! I guess that would get kind of boring, so I try to pick other colors too!

6.) I have 10 living children and 3 in Heaven. My oldest is now 23 and my youngest is 4. Life is never boring with so many children and the different ages!

7.) I just recently became a mother-in law!  Welcome to the family Naomi!

Here are my seven nominees:

1.) Angie @ Ponder the Path of thy Feet 
Angie has been a great Bloggy  Friend. She is inspiring and encouraging! She has a fun Bible Challenge going on right now, so go check it out!

2.) Candace @ Living With Faith
Candace is a such a great inspiration! She has wonderful determination as she takes care of her beautiful daughter Faith who faces health challenges!  I admire her for all stick-to-it-ive-ness as she cares for Faith and works with the Healthcare personnel. Keep Sweet Faith in your prayers for God to bring his healing touch to her and to be with her parents as they care for her!

3.) Pam @ God's In the Small Stuff
Pam is a Mom to 13! I enjoy her posts as she writes from her heart and she is very real. I enjoy reading blogs from other moms that have large families and especially when they have more children than I do!  I can learn so much from these moms!

4.) Ange @ A Heart At Home
Ange is such a sweet lady and a special bloggy friend. Ange is the Mom to 11 children. She doesn't have a lot of time to blog right now as she welcomed twin baby girls into her family in November. Needless to say, she is a busy lady! I miss your posts Ange!

5.) Tricia @ Mommy x 12
I have just recently started following Tricia's blog. She is such a great inspiration to me as she is a Mom to 12 and Grandma to 3 and 1 grandchild on the way!  She has homeschooled for many years and has great wisdom. I look forward to getting to know her better.

6.) Patrice @ Williams Family Blog
I enjoy Patrice's honesty as she shares about her life and the ups and downs she experiences as she cares for her sweet little boy, Jonah . Jonah has a medical condition called EB and it can be very challenging. Please keep this wonderful family in your prayers and especially for God's Healing touch on Jonah.

7.) Holly @ Caring for Carleigh
OK, I know that Holly has actually already received this award, but it has been difficult finding bloggers that have not received this award. Holly is such a dear sweet bloggy friend! She is always faithful to comment. She has such a wonderful heart for others, especially other grieving Moms. I am almost old enough to be her Mom,but she inspires me greatly!
