Wonder Woman...

Fourmother at Land of Our Fourmother has passed some lovely Wonder Woman roses on to me. How sweet!

I think all of us has our Wonder Woman moments. Walking into a room full of screaming, fighting, crying children and with your great and mysterious superpowers, magically turning it into a room full of snuggling, happy people. Cooking a 5 course meal for the inlaws and managing to get everything done at precisely the right moment - nothing burned or overspiced or anything. Tackling the huge evil stack of bills and plugging away until everything is paid or filed in the appropriate place.

I'd like to think, at least once in a while, Wonder Woman arrived home after dropping the bad guys off to the authorities in her invisible jet, poured herself a drink, plopped down on her pet-hair coated couch and thought to herself, "Holy crap! I can't believe I pulled that off."

So, in the tradition of blog awards, I give credit where it's due and pass this on to five wonderful women bloggers:
Ami, who shares the glory and misery of her life with grace, intelligence, and humor. Ami, you rock!
Leola at Living on the Edge... She's a great woman with a lot of guts.
Heather at Mini Memoirs of Mine. She's a neighbor, with a much more interesting life than she gives herself credit for.
Gail at Life a la Carte. The more I learn about Gail, the more I find we have in common.
Nina at Painted Rainbows and Chamomile Tea. She says she's learning about homeschooling, but she shares such great resources, I'm actually learning a lot from her.

I'm hoping this little gift of a silly blog graphic will help these women see how wonderful we all are, every single day.

That is sweet! And much deserved my friend much deserved. I an for one am thankful to have "bumped" into each other along our paths.

Heather, thanks. It makes my day to realize that people I don't even "know" are reading my blog. I hope read more of your blog as well. Thanks for the compliment. You know most days I don't feel like I am doing much right.

Think about Wonder Woman sure does bring back memories. ;)

Oh, and clearly proofreading isn't one of my Wonder skills. :)

Yippee! Thank you! I've never gotten an award before.

Come to think of it, I was never tagged with a meme until you tagged me. You're so sweet to keep me included in the blogging community.

Congrats! I think you don't give your self enough credit at times either. I think you are a Wonderful Woman! Go! You!

Thanks Heather!!! It's good to know people are reading my blog and thank you for the wonderful comment. I don't think you give yourself enough credit though. You homeschool your children... I send mine out into the schools just so I can get a small break!!!
