I was given the Liebster Award!
I got a blog award today :)What a nice surprise! I was nominated for the Liebster Blog Award from Abby at Confessions of an Imperfect Mom.
The Liebster Blog Award is given to bloggers by bloggers. It is a way to acknowledge each other and say “you’re doing a great job”. It is for blogs with 200 or less followers, so it’s also a great way to spread the word about smaller blogs and get them more readers and followers! When you receive the award, you post 11 random facts about yourself and answer 11 questions from the person(s) who nominated you. You pass the Award onto 11 other blogs (make sure you tell them you nominated them!) and ask them 11 questions. You’re not allowed to nominate the blog(s) who nominated you! (To get the button, right click the picture on my page and save the picture to your computer. You can then upload to your blog.)
11 Random Facts about ME:
- I know first hand that groundhogs taste really good with salt!
- I have an irregular heart beat.
- I am a coffee snob.
- I have severe panic attacks in water to the point that I had to be rescued more than once.
- I miss playing competitive sports.
- I am in pain every day and no Dr. can tell me why; it's very discouraging.
- I wish I could time machine myself back to the 1800's to live.
- The first time I told someone else about Christ's sacrifice, Heaven and Hell, they told me they weren't allowed to play with me any more because I said the word "hell". I was 6 years old.
- I kick myself all the time, because I ended up in a class with that same person when I was 15, I didn't try to tell her again about Christ. I pray for her a lot though I don't know what happened to her when the last bell rang.
- I eagerly check my mailbox hoping that I get a personal letter; it's rare that it actually happens.
