My Very First Award!

I am so excited! I received my very first bloggy award!
Thank you Liz~

Now, I have the pleasure of listing 10 things that make me happy ~ so here goes!

1 - God, and if you have read my blog at all lately, you will know why.

2 - My hubby, he is alive and we are near the 5 year anniversary of his kidney transplant.

3 - My boys, what joy they bring to my life.

4 - My granddaughter, if you have grandchildren, you know how much they make you happy.

5 - Our extended families, for so many different reasons.

6 - Scrapbooking!

7 - Walking in the morning and talking to God while the sun is just beginning to peak over the horizon.

8 - Going to work, I have so many hats to wear as the administrator for a pediatric office, my days are so varied and I get to be a part of such a variety of areas in medicine and healing.

9 - Spending time in God's word, soaking in His voice and knowing He is present.

10 - Blogging, every aspect of it is joyful. Writing, reading, praying and getting to know you. I just love it and it makes me happy.

I now have the joy of passing this award on to two very special people.

Jenny, who lives a life similar to mine when I was a young mom and shares such wonderful insights on raising a child with Special Considerations as well as her Money Monday and Thank You Thursday.

Grace, whom I call Ms Sunny, because every time I read her blog I receive encouragment or a good laugh. She lives in Sunny, CA and I believe that she is what makes Sunny a happy place.

Thank you to Liz ...AND... congratulations to Jenny and Grace~

Considering It All Joy,


  1. Thank you so kindly! I will treasure it and pass it on soon.


  2. Cindy,

    I made time today to visit some of your earlier posts! I am so blessed to have shared in just a small portion of your story. You are brave for putting it out there, unsure of how you would be received! I can hear the horror and pain in your words and wish I were able to see your face! I am drawn to your honesty and desire to grow as a woman and a person! You have a lot to offer those around you! Thank you for encouraging me! I will pray for you and your journey. Each day is new and different and that is usually when the unexpected happens! I hope that you continue to put words to your pain and wounds and that you will find a peace because of it.
