Heart Smiles-Transformed!

I am very bad about posting awards. SORRY GUYS-been super busy lately! Lame excuse I know!

I got this award from ANGELA at Phoenix's Fight! She is the mother to Phoenix-a sweet baby with Cystic Fibrosis.

She passed this award to some of her blog friends and asked us to pass it on to some of our blog friends. She says the award was for those who step out of their comfort box and make new blog friends! So, that's what I'm going to do. I'm going to pass this out to one of my blog pals. So I pass this award to one of my favorite new blogs I am hooked on:

My new friend I already LOVE who is ministering with her family in East Africa-mom to 7 just like me! She has the heart for the orphan just like me! Check out her blog TRANSFORMED FROM GLORY TO GLORY CONGRATS & PASS IT ON!!

The 2nd award comes from my new friend Elisabeth at NO GREATER GIFT She gave me "THE FRIENDSHIP AWARD. Thanks Elisabeth!

"These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find friends and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships will be propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly- written text into the body of their award."
I am passing this award on to AMIE at Heart Smiles-we were INSTANT friends through HO HO's and Ding Dongs believe it or not! Another adoptive mom with a sweetness all her own. ANOTHER mom to seven with God's calling for the orphan!

Thanks for your comment on my blog--I'm humbled that you think I'm brave:) I've got nothin' on you!! If you can farm, homeschool, and think about adopting more kids while mothering seven...I think a few more from Ethiopia would be great!

A note from Grandma K said...

What a fun blog to visit! What a blessing to be a mom at this time in particular! And what a treasure to have children.

My sister had 5 children, adopted 8 and has fostered 97 (some for an afternoon, some for two years...she never knows when they are dropped off on her porch.) I wrote her story in a book. If you are interested in reading it, I would be happy to send you a copy.

I admire and honor wonderful moms!
Thank you so much for being a light.
