She Thinks I Make Lemonade

Lemonade AwardErin at From Son Up to Son Down has given me my first Blog Award ever!

The purpose of this award is to give it to someone who is showing gratitude or a good attitude "if life hands you lemons, made lemonade" within their life or blog: put the logo on your blog, nominate at least 10 blogs that show great attitude and/or gratitude, link to your nominees, let them know they have received the award by commenting on their blog, and share the love and link to the person from whom you received your award.

And now I have mixed feelings, because I know I gripe a lot. OK, to be honest, in between the kvetching about Josh is the occasional cry for help when my depression rears it's ugly head, which has been more and more often lately.

But hey, I guess it's time to make some lemonade. Raspberry flavored of course! (for those of you who have not eaten with me, I almost ALWAYS get raspberry iced tea, raspberry lemonade, raspberry margaritas ... I LOVE raspberry!)

And the nominees that lift my spirits and bless me when I am down are (in no particular order):

  1. Thea @ A control freak living in an out of control world
  2. Jes @ INSERT WITTY CATCHPHRASE HERE...
  3. Kitrona @ WARNING: SCHEMATIC INACCURATE
  4. Cynthia @ Living In Theory
  5. Carissa @ Good & Crazy People and Mom It Forward
  6. Jyl @ Mom It Forward and Mommy Gossip

  16. Jason X -- just because he makes me laugh almost daily at his antics

[sidenote: Twitter has garnered me more readers and more interaction in the blogging community than anything else, I am amazed and blessed by all the new blogging pals I have made].

Posting this and then I have a ton of comments to make... Love you all!
