April at Road to SiJi kindly awarded me a Blogging with a Purpose award. I have taken a few days to think about this as it really did take me by surprise. I have always felt my blog really has no purpose other than to be fun for me and to connect with other bloggers as I have met some incredible people through blogging. My 'lack of blogging purpose' isn't due to my lack of deep thoughts or quest for life knowledge. My life is full of those things and after 45 (oh crap, I put it out there) years I have plenty I could write about, I suppose. But honestly I am not much of a writer and I barely even post as often as I would like to post. Heck, I haven't even completely set up this blog as you can see by its simplicity and lack of bells and whistles. So I have often (especially/mostly before children) wondered what my purpose in life is not to mention the purpose of this blog. Right now my purpose in life is to do my best to lovingly raise my incredible daughters to be happy, confident, responsible people and show them how to have A LOT OF FUN on their way through life. So hopefully that will show through here and maybe someday this blog will be more. And then again maybe not :) I thank April for thinking of me and enjoying my blog. I will be here through your wait for your little one and will be excited right along with you when receive your referral.
I am supposed to award this to 5 more bloggers. I have been searching my frequented sites this evening and, well, they have all been awarded this previously - like in the last few days. So no one procrastinates like me???
But, the one I immediately thought of should not surprise you. My friend Heather.
Just read a few posts and you will easily find the purpose for yourself. You will find heartfelt joyful parenting, a family who puts family at the very top and is proactive and insightful about transracial adoption. And then of course the sheer fun of the antics of their adorable little guys.
The guidelines for this award are:
1. Award 5 others who have not received the award
2. The awarded blogs must serve some purpose
3. Link back to original entry
4. Must post award banner (as soon as I can get that to work I will do it) on site and link it to Novak's site.
