Tonya from fourth generation farmgirl was kind enough to nominate my blog for the Dedicated Blogger Award.  This is a recognition I’m truly honored to receive, especially from a writer who provides such inspirational and honest work on her site.

Barbara of The Idealistic Rebel states, “This award is dedicated to those bloggers who consistently provide wisdom, inspiration, kindness, gentleness, and truth to the world through their blogs.”  What a compliment to be considered worthy of these accolades.  Thank you very much, Tonya.

The blogging community has been an incredibly welcoming group of writers, one I’ve had the great pleasure of exploring over the last nine months.  These men and women have provided ample amounts of wisdom, kindness, and truth through dry wit and incredibly moving writing.  It’s been a joy finding pieces each day that make me think or cry or laugh myself silly.

There are no requirements for the Dedicated Blogger Award, only a recognition of like-minded bloggers and a request to “pay it forward.”

Here are just a few of the blogs I follow that deserve this award:

Born in My Heart

Sass and Balderdash

Two boys, One dog and Us

Herding Chickens and Other Adventures In Foster and Adoptive Care

Fill Your Own Glass


Behind the White Coat

Just kidding…no, but seriously

Three’s a Herd


Black Dog Photography


Again, Tonya, thank you so much for this special award!
