Thinking Blogger Award Goes to....

Becca of "tagged" me with the "Thinking Blogger" award. She received the award...dah and had to name five other blogs that gave her food for thought. I'm very honored and humbled to have given her food for thought. Now I must choose five blogs that give me flavorful, spicy, comforting, food for thought. This is very difficult since she would have been on my list, but alas she has already been "tagged." Congrats Becca and thank you!

Five blogs out of the many I love to read is a tough one. Many have made me think and inspired me. If the five I have chosen want to play the rules are at the end.

1. Amber at has a no non-sense approach to life. She has been through hell and back, yet continues on with heart. She is a wonderful writer who can always make you laugh. She has a beautiful young family that she nurtures while working on her own growth. You Rock!

2. Darlene at is a very strong gal that inspires me with every post. She is an amazing writer, painter and photographer that has shared her journey over the past year, of the loss of her twin boys. She is a young gal that inspires me to get out of bed each day with hope in my heart. You go girl!

3. Pam at is my fellow warrior in the fight against ALS that tries to ravage our bodies but never our spirit. Her digital art and poetry expresses her love of the globe. We hold each other up daily as she attempts to get me to eat better. We are Batman & Robin the dynamic duo.

4. Maureen at is the most amazing photographer and poet. She loves animals and has an 18yr old Retriever named Sam. He looks like my Manny dog. She inspires me to keep my camera close and my faith closer.

5. Left Handed Trees at is a new blog for me but this gal can write about the weather and blow my mind! We will see her novel at the book store for sure! She does this and more while being a mommy of three. I can't wait to be a better writer from just reading about her day.

To play along, think of five bloggers that provide you with some flavorful, spicy, comforting, food for thought, and then follow these rules:

Write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think.
Link to the original post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme.
Optional: Proudly display your
'Thinking Blogger Award' with a link to the post that you wrote (here is an alternative silver version if gold doesn't fit your blog).

I wanted to say thank you SO much for considering my blog a "Thinking" one. This is really an honor to me, since--as all bloggers do, I sometimes wonder if what I'm sharing works for my readers. I will post about my choices soon...hmm, now you've got me thinking!
