She has a great blog, and I consider her one of my bloggy friends!

The second Award...
The Honest Scrap award which is for honest blogging. If you receive this award you must nominate at least 1 other blogger and pass it on. And list 10 honest things about yourself that no one knows!

I have actually received this one I am pasting my last responses..
10 things about me:
1) I play guitar...I love it, but haven't played as much as I like the last couple of years.
I have played for about 12 guitar is a Takamini..special edition Tibetan Alm..
Wouldn't want to give it up for anything.
It is very special to me, because about four years ago, we had a break in where I lived,
and the only things the person took, were my keyboard, and two of my guitars.
My stolen guitar was worth quite a bit, and I had an emotional attachment to it, so I was heart broken...
when people found out what happened...a very large donation was collected,
and I was given money to purchase the guitar I have now..which makes it very special to me....

2) I love to paint and draw, but haven't done it for a very very long time...due to kids and all...LOL!

3) I have five kids, but there are 17 years difference between my third daughter and my son...
My husband and I had been married 10 years before we decided we wanted children...and then the instigating factor was the loss of two close friends who reminded us of our mortality....One to leukemia and the other to a heart attack..both at just over 30 years old... It was our celebration of life...and our son is named after one of them...

4) I sing. I love to sing....mostly praise and worship, but I will sing anything...I sing all the my kids, at home, at the car...LOL!

5) I am a bit of a hoarder, (which is funny because I hate clutter)  but working on it...LOL!

6) I have been married to my second husband for fifteen years this summer...
He is still my best friend after all these years...we have a blast together..
It has been a wild ride..

7) I am an introvert.. (although you would never know it)
..I dislike having people see who I really am...I am terrified they won't like me..
but I am working on it, and with God's grace have over come many of my insecurities...
Thank God for His life changing power...  :)

8) My pet peeve is being late.

9) I LOVE to travel, and don't get to do it near enough...

10) I am an adventure junky...and will do (almost) anything for an adrenalin high...again..
haven't been able to support this habit the last several years..  ;)
Ok...and this one, I would like to pass on to one of 
my newer blogging friends...
Rose at
Her stories make me smile!

and finally the last one...

The Sunshine Award which is awarded to bloggers whose positivity and creativity inspire others in the blogging world.
This one I am going to pass on to Alicia

She always has some cool project going on over at her place...

Ok...I think that about does it...
I am having computer issues today, 
so I better go and try to work some of those out!
Have a great week everyone!

Thanks so much Robyn! I found you. You left me a sweet comment, but when I clicked on your name it doesn't link it back to your email or your blog. Then I remembered your blog name. Yah!

Congrats on all these awards! You've been a busy bee over here.

And thanks again for the sweet award. It means so much to be recognized by such great bloggers such as yourself!
