Beautiful Blogger Award for Some Beautiful Blogs!

The Rules for The Beautiful Blogger Award:

  • ***Just last week Stacie at found my blog and I found hers. This sweet lady then took the time to choose me on 8/28/2012 for the beautiful blogger award http://staciegh.wordpress.com/2012/08/28/beautiful-blogger-award-2/. Check out her blog—she is quite amazing! do check out her blog—she deals with so much with her fibromyalgia and other things too. Yet her outlook is so wonderfully positive. Welcome to Stacie!
  • Write a little something about the Beautiful Blogger who nominated you with the award. See above. And don’t forget to go and check her’s out too. Then share 7 things about yourself and nominate 7 bloggers. (oh! Put the award on your page, of course).  

Share 7 things about me. I hope I don’t bore you too badly!!

  1. I have called many states home over the years (either by living there or working there: MN, IL, IN, OH, MI, MA, NH, NJ, and AZ).
  2. I am a perennial optimist, and my Shepherd gives me the strength to remain one.
  3. I love to write nonfiction, partially because I stink at writing dialogue and at character development.
  4. I am a teacher at heart—and have been a tutor for years and done corporate training, and safe environment training (related to appropriate behaviors and signs of inappropriate behaviors).
  5. I love musicals, folk music, jazz, symphonies, most music from the 40s through the 70s. I love sunsets, starry nights, walking by the water, walking in the forest, and driving through the mountains.
  6. I am kind, loving, and love to encourage people.
  7. I have no tolerance for bullies and behavior and attitudes that encourage bullying. I am working on a book about bullying.
  8. If you are overwhelmed by the alleged “rules for the award” just accept the award as a token of my appreciation for you. No pressure.

    Congrats, Kate–wonderful post! I’m trying to come up with a poem re bullying–some people do it so subtly, and/or they follow it up with, “I was joking!” Not an excuse, not okay–and especially for those who fly the Christian believer’s flag. Sorry–I just about started on a rant…

    By the way, you listed Jelillie, who’s a fab pastor–was it a typo: “her” blog? He’s definitely a guy! God bless you Big, Kate–love, sis Caddo
