Hiatus and Awards! Awards! Awards!

I hope I still have readers after the unannounced hiatus I took this past month.  It was much needed.

I wish I could say I was traipsing across Europe with my husband and children, trodding where the wind blows, but negatory. I was doing what  I do best when I have multiple choices to a simple decision: I wind myself up, unravel, sort out the pieces, make a pros and cons list, talk to trustworthy people of differing temperaments, add to the pros and cons list, ponder, write about it, pray, pray, pray, look over the pros and cons list, write, and finally pursue all choice and let God figure it out.

Here I am, all directions pursued, ready to come back to my blog.  Thank you to all who did not drop me from their reading list. I appreciate your patience.

Now on to awards!

Right before Thanksgiving, two of my favorite bloggers nominated me for Very Inspiring Blogger Award.  I am humbled because facelikeafryingpan of The Embiggens Project  and wedelmom of The View From A Slightly Twisted Angle actually inspire me!

Although, I’m uncertain how all my nincompoopness is inspiring, I humbly acknowledge the nomination. 😉

Here is what I have to do next:

1. Display the award logo on your blog.

One thought on “Hiatus and Awards! Awards! Awards!

  1. I once tried to be organized too. Tried making notes to remind myself of things, but forgot to look at them. Need something to remind me to look at my reminders.
    Merry Christmas and I am so happy to have you back!! God bless.
