In which I am given a prize for my Scribbling...

Deb on the Run gave me the Superior Scribbler Award while I was across the country and couldn't properly respond. Now I'm home and can say THANKS Deb! Deb's own blog is one of my favorites, but I guess I can't just problem, as there are several others I'd like to announce.

But first, here are the rules, for those of you I'll list below:
  1. Each Superior Scribbler must in turn pass The Award on to 5 most-deserving Bloggy Friends.
  2. Each Superior Scribbler must link to the author & the name of the blog from whom he/she has received The Award.
  3. Each Superior Scribbler must display The Award on his/her blog, and link to This Post, which explains The Award.
  4. Each Blogger who wins The Superior Scribbler Award must visit this post and add his/her name to the Mr. Linky List. That way, we’ll be able to keep up-to-date on everyone who receives This Prestigious Honor![anyone can go there and check out the 1343 ! winning blogs that are linked so far. You might find a new one to love.]
  5. Each Superior Scribbler must post these rules on his/her blog.
And now the awards, to a few of the blogs I like to read regularly:

  • My friend Jeannette at Bread on the Water posts thoughtful musings full of hope and beauty.
  • Gigi at Firefly Cottage writes about homemaking, including wonderful pie recipes.
  • The blog name Happy at Home attracted me when I first saw it, and Laurel's loving descriptions of her family life keep me coming back.
  • Koinonikon is the name of Margaret's blog, where her careful writing about the working out of her salvation is a joy to read, and always instructive.
  • If you get me mixed up with the blogger at Lifenut, it is only because her name is Gretchen, too. She is witty and wise and I laugh out loud reading about her family-full days.

As to my own writing, the name Superior Scribbler pleases me very much, as the "Scribbler" part matches my self-concept and attempts to join in that Great Conversation we humans are having. Thank you all for being here in It with me.

It didn't seem right to disallow comments on this post. :)

Oh, my, I am so jet-lagged I couldn't even read the name of the award. I've fixed my misspelling now....

Janet said...

Congratulations, Gretchen! I really enjoy your blog.

(I'm glad you turned the comments back on for this one too. :-)
