Thank you Jelly Pom

I love the name of her blog so I had to put it in the title.  Jelly Pom was nice enough to throw me the Very Inspirational Blogging award.  These blogging awards are great encouragers to keep writing and I appreciate the sentiments behind them.

So the following now has to happen:

  1. thank the person who nominated you – so again, thanks Jelly Pom!
  2. post the award to my page;
  3. list seven things about me;
  4. nominate a few more inspiring blogs and let each of them know they’ve been nominated by posting a comment on their blog.

Okay, here is the award:

7 things about myself?  Oy, I dunno.

1. I’m a woman

2. I’m a speed reader

3. I love Jimmy Fallon

4. I love Survivor

5. For some reason I could never quite picture the Balrog in Lord of the Rings books, I don’t know why.  I just couldn’t see it.  Not until the movie did I go ‘ohhhhhhh’

6. I’m Canadian

7. I have mad love for gorillas

And now for the blogs I want to give the title of Very Inspiring Blogger to are:

http://iamtheinvisiblehand.wordpress.com/ – she says some brave things in her blog, things I have only thought but never said out loud.  Her blog resonates strongly with me.

http://grimmsfurrytail.wordpress.com/ – let’s face it, animals are always inspiring.  I dare you to read the About Grimm section and not fall for that dog.

http://fatimaildefonso536.wordpress.com/ – hers is a voice of a broken heart.  Reading her posts are raw.  I respect anyone willing to just throw their emotions out on the table.

http://renegadehomeschooler.wordpress.com/ – again, another honest voice.  I’ve enjoyed reading her posts on homeschooling as I too have been thinking about homeschooling my kids (when I have them).

All right, that’s it for me.  I only discovered these 4 today and was really moved by their posts so that is why they are getting some blog love here.
