I'm Having a Craving

Updated to add:

***And updated again (I really need to get some sleep!!)

I just thought I'd add that I'd love to acknowledge Jen for giving me this beautiful award this week. It has deep meaning as written by the creator of the award:

Women like the mother who smiles daily, her heartaching for the her child who is ill. The mother who has encouraged and held her child in his/her dieing moments. The woman who has struggled, clawing her way up the mountain to gain freedom from personal problems; drugs, alcoholism, mental health issues, illness, overcoming disabilities; to name a few. Any and every woman who has escaped or lives in a life of domestic violence; holding herself strong on the outside, yet withered on the inside. The woman who teaches, provides childcare, doctors, nurses or in anyway touches the lives of others children; knowing she cannot have a child of her own as her heart desires.”

While I do take care of other's children I do have three of my own and felt very undeserving of this special award. But as is God's way He uses other's to encourage us when we do feel very unworthy. So thank you Jen, I really need encouragement and a boost and I appreciate all you said to me in the email. You're a doll.

And I would really like to pass this on to three women who have really been WonderWoman in my eyes as I've come to know them in the last year. Overcoming incredible obstacles with their children's health, they have built a strong faith and have been able to share that with us and I truly think they are WonderWoman moms and WonderWoman of Faith.

You Are a Chocolate Chip Cookie

Traditional and conservative, most people find you comforting.
You're friendly and easy to get to know. This makes you very popular - without even trying!

I had about 4 hours sleep last night, hence, the brilliant, challenging, observant post today. And no it's not because of all the partying in yesterday's post. But anyway, coincidentally chocolate chip cookies really are my all time favorite and between Beck's post about losing the recipe for the best chocolate chip cookies ever and this little thingy I am now into a major craving with no chocolate chips in the house or in sight. *Sigh* Story of my life.

Have a great weekend everyone.

P.S. If you haven't delurked for the party go to yesterday's post and introduce yourself. C'mon don't be shy.

Oh I got a present today too. A tin of Lindt chocolate, so yummy. I'm was so sad when I happened to catch a glimpse of the fact that there are 6 grams of fat per ball! Now why do they have to go and put that on there. Bummer but I ate two anyway :)

Congrats on your award!

My oh my, what a blessing this was! I sure haven't felt anything close to a "wonder woman".

I am encouraged and blessed to know that God has used my journey to build not only my faith but the faith of other's.

Thanks for words of blessing and encouragement on this journey of ours. It was a good week to hear it! ;-)
