She Thinks I Make Lemonade

December 31, 2008

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
  4. Cynthia @ Living In Theory
  5. Carissa @ Good & Crazy People and Mom It Forward
  6. Jyl @ Mom It Forward and Mommy Gossip
  7. Duong @ Beauty Secrets : Spirit, Soul and Body
  8. Doug @ The Splintered Mind
  9. Brin @ Bitz of Brin
  10. Mariah @ Manic Mariah
  11. Tonya @ A Day in my Life...
  12. Shelly B @ Sweet Cherry Vintage Lingerie (don't forget to stop by her eBay store. WOW!!!!)
  13. Cheryl M. -- always uplifting
  14. Cheryl/JasperBlu
  15. Daphne @ Sunshine's Surmise
  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!


  1. Wow! Seriously? Thanks! I'll nominate mine when I'm conscious (for some value of "conscious") tomorrow. Thank you again; this is just the kind of encouragement I need. Nice when the universe is accommodating. :)

  2. You are so sweet! Thanks! You know, I used to joke that my nickname was Sugar b/c I could turn lemons into lemonade. Then I just got tired of laughing about it... now I'm feeling ready for the lemonade reference again. Thanks, friend. This is going to be a great year.

  3. Twitter is great. I also like Entrecard for bringing in the traffic.

  4. Wow! I am so honored to be on this list. Isn't it amazing the friendships we have formed in only a few months on twitter. I have been humbled too see the good that has come from this technology and the blessing it has been in my life.

    Thanks for bestowing this award on me. Can't wait to share it with others :)!

    Happy New Year.


  5. Ahhh Thanks! I will pass it on and what a great thing to remember...we can always turn Lemons into Lemonade :) Hapy New Year my Twitter friend

  6. Well that's really nice of you. Thanks, and glad I can make you laugh. Thanks for helping make Twitter a fun place to be.

  7. Hey there I am totally impressed with your long list of peeps who inspire you... that says a lot...ABOUT YOU!

    Cheers and MORE! in the new year... I'm one of those that met you on twitter... thanks for the frienship!


  8. Oh gee Anette, no I totally didn't see this. THANKS for thinking of me though! How cool are you? Well, you're always cool actually.


    Next week when the little bug is back in school, I can return the favor!

  9. @kitrona, yes seriously. You make me look like a big wimp, and yet you persist day after day. I'm so glad to have "met" you.

    @sugar you can always pick a flavor :) I know it does get tiring/frustrating always trying to see the bright side, but some personalities (like yours!) just can't help it.

    Jyl, Carissa, Cheryl, and Mariah you gals are some of the best reasons why I haven't deleted my twitter account

  10. I'm glad you're kitchen is now clean! hehe :)

    But I'm more glad to have given you your first award, you deserve it!

    Wonderful list by the way! <3 Hugs!
