On Blessings, Breaks and Dandelions



Heather at The Roller Coaster Ride of My Life has really honored me by passing the Creative Blogger Award to me. This is what she said:






I have never ever thought of myself as a creative person and have in fact, desired creativeness in my life. So that Heather would give me this award for being creative enough to be able to show in some small way how important leaning on God in this life is, is truly very humbling. Thank you, Heather.


I'm supposed to pass it on now, but I want to really think on it. So it will have to wait a week or so. I'm going to take a little break from blogging. Summer is almost over and my family and I hear the pool and the lake calling our name, and a picnic basket or two has our name written all over it. I want to give them my full attention and focus this week. They grow up so fast and I just am craving solid time with them.

So I will post tomorrow at Faith Lifts. Please join me there to talk about dandelions. Yes dandelions. The beautiful yellow flower. Or is it the pesky weed? We'll talk about it tomorrow. And I'll post Word for the Weekend. Because that just builds me up to do it so I don't want to miss it. And then I'll be back next week.

Now I'm off to look for that peice of torturous fabric known as the swim suit. I know it's around here somewhere.

Congrats! I agree with what she said!

Good for you, Susanne! Breaks are good. I took the weekend off and feel all refreshed. So a whole week should make a new woman out of you. LOL

I know exactly where my swimsuit is. It's hidden. Probably forever. I'd rather save myself the embarrassment and just wear cutoffs. :-)

Enjoy your break, enjoy your family and I hope you have a wonderful week.

Congratulations on this award, dear Susanne!

And I understand your need for a bloggy break- especially towards the end of summertime, and even more so as you enjoy that precious time with your family.

(((HUGS)))
