Thank you, Teacher Mommy, for bestowing upon me the following award:
That, in itself, is pretty awe-summ. So here are the rules:
1. List 7 things that make me Awe-Summm
2. Pass the award onto 7 bloggers that I love.
3. Tag those bloggers to let them know they are now Queens too, and link back to the Queen who tagged you.
Soooooooooooo. Seven Things. Hmmmm.
One. My hands, which I use each day to make meals for my family and which I manage to control each day, such that I do not strangle said family when they do not eat the meals I make for them.
Two. My voice, which can be surprisingly loud and also surprisingly sweet. I am especially thankful for the loud part, because I can bring a room full of savages to a halt with a well-placed bellow.
Three. My kids make me awe-summ because each day they provide me with countless chances to do what seems impossible, and no matter how much I suck at that on any given day, on the very next day I get to have a whole passel of new chances too be awe-sum to them. How awe-summ is that?
Four. My ability to go without sleep. Also a curse, which may, in fact, kill me someday, but for now it comes in quite handily.
Five. My guacamole. Nothing is quite so satisfying as hearing your child say that no one makes better guacamole than mom. (It is damn good, truth be told.)
Six. My friends, because they bring me out of myself and keep me from wallowing in a little shallow pit of isolation, loneliness, and woe. I'm actually kind of funny around the right people, which always makes me grateful for their existence.
Seven. I made it through 7 awe-summ things, which I didn't think I could do, which is, after all, awe-summ.
As for this tagging business. Now that's the part that really stumps me. I am not all that keen on the idea of passing on the love in quite this fashion. Soooooooooooo, instead, please take a look at my side bar, under the heading "Have you read these?" and visit these blogs. They are all more than awesome.
Thank you for indulging this list.
