I’d Like To Thank My Publicist…

Lynilu at Never Ending Journey has a most excellent blog. So much so that her blog has been rated E for Excellent – a very fitting rating.

She turned around and rated four other blogs with an E, including mine. Boy, was I humbled to be rated alongside these other fine bloggers! So now it’s my turn to rate another blog or two. As all of you know, this is so hard! I think all the blogs I read are worthy of an E rating. Otherwise why would I read them?

I’ve decided to pass the “E” rating along to two of my new favorites. Funny thing is, they’re related. AND I get to meet them both in the fall. IN REAL LIFE!

Sing4Joy at Southern Living and Other Peeks Into My Psyche has a truly Excellent blog. Her husband is currently in Iraq and she sometimes posts these wonderfully touching excerpts from his letters home. She also writes funny, sweet and encouraging posts. Not only does she sing for joy, she exudes joy. Add to that she’s now officially a professional photographer and you’ve got a completely Excellent package!

His Girl at His Girl’s Blog also has an incredibly Excellent blog. She’s a speaker and an author and generally the person I want to be when I grow up – except I’m older than she is. She’s open and honest and takes us on her walk with the Lord, inspiring me all the time. Not only that, but both of these bloggers are FUNNY! And I love funny.

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is EXCELLENT or praiseworthy—think about such things.
Philippians 4:7-9


Then I received this very “kind” award from HisGirl. (Those of you who know me very well are probably snickering at how I’ve fooled everyone. Yeah. Me, too.)

Now I don’t tolerate unkind people and I’ve found the majority of bloggers I hang out with (virtually speaking) are very nice. Everyone on my blogroll easily deserves this award, too. But I’ve got a pretty hefty blogroll going so that would take forever. Instead I’m going to pass this on to two as well.

Deb at The Daily B is always kind. She is a sweet, sweet girl with never anything snarky or mean to say. NEVER. How many of us can say that?? Well, not me anyway. And you can just look at her beautiful smile and know she’s kind. She happens to live in the vicinity of my in-laws so I plan on meeting her someday, too.

And Katybug at Watercooler Wisdom… Or Lack Thereof is always kind. She’s pregnant with Little Bug – a muy surprise blessing – and she still manages to be nice! Of course, I am a little biased because she shares the same intense adoration of the delectable fluffernutter as I do. Some day we’re going to meet in real life and chat and laugh over fluffernutter sandwiches and chocolate milk.

    To quote Bill and Ted, you are MOST Excellent, and MOST kind. I think even So-crates would love reading your blog and musing with you. I’ll have to check out these ladies. I don’t know if I want to meet the one who’s always kind, though. Might make me feel like poo. 😉

I am humbled and overjoyed… and, girl… I can’t BELIEVE I HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL TIL THE FALL TO MEET YOU!!!!mwah!

  15. Becky on February 19, 2008 at 5:53 pm

    Congrats on the well-deserved E rating!I hope to meetcha in real life one day, too! My hubby’s aunt would LOVE to have us come to PA… And in answer to your question, we’re in the High Desert area and as Dusty Rogers, son of the famous Roy Rogers (both of which lived in our area until about 10 years or so ago) once said, “We’re nothing more than a bathroom stop on the way to Vegas.”

  16. Cmommy on February 19, 2008 at 5:53 pm

    Jenster -As Deb correctly predicted, I did snicker a little at her Kindness award… ha ha ha. Maybe it’s the whole she’s my little sister perspective, but I will say, she has kindness with a fiesty twist! Way to Go DEB! Congrats on this honorable and prestigious award!Cat

  18. Sing4joy on February 19, 2008 at 10:27 pm
