Oh my goodness!

I am very touched. Lisa from "The Berry Patch" picked me for a blogger award! I was shocked, out of all the nice blogs she reads she picked me! I started reading Lisa's blog last year when I became interested in Homeschooling my children, and she started talking to me about it. Come to find out we lived very close to each other, so we was able to move our friendship from just reading each others blogs, to real life as well. I didn't have a lot of time to get to know her before I moved to Florida, but I am VERY grateful for the time I did get. She is an amazing woman! I hope that we are able to stay friends and keep in touch for a long time. :) Thanks again Lisa!

So I have been asked to list 6 things that I value, and 6 things that I don't value, and then pass it along to 6 other lovely bloggers. So here goes nothing!

6 Things I value

1. My family: I love that they are always there to support me. Even when I tend to do crazy things....(yes, I can be nuts at times) That they love me no matter what. That they pick you up when you fall!

2. My children: Even as crazy as they can drive me at times... my children truly inspire me to do the best I can in life. They keep things interesting and full of laughter. They drive me to always do the best I can, and for that I am grateful.

3. My Friends: They know who they are, and I don't want to go getting all mushy on ya. :) But I am grateful to have such faithful friends to stand by me. I have some that have gotten me through some of the toughest times of my life. They bring lots of happiness and joy to my life. Thanks!!!

4. Freedom: Can you imagine life without freedom?? I mean we have the freedom to choose our education, husbands, and where we live. I can't imagine what life would be like if that was all taken away from us. I like that if I choose to homeschool my child cause I don't agree with public school I can. I just think that our freedom is a wonderful thing!

5. Recreation Departments: I know call me crazy, but I find these places amazing. I was lucky to have been able to work with one for a short period of time. I hope to be able to again sometime, as I found a new passion in doing it. I have found one down here, and I just have to say... the opportunities they gave to kids, to keep them out of trouble is a very nice thing. The people who give their time to these children are wonderful, and need to be thanked. I certainly appreciate them!

6. Ice Cream: What??? Lisa picked soda! I just have to say... ice cream is a wonderful thing!!!! :) Great for those stressful days when nothing else makes you feel better!

6 Things I don't value

1. Those who think they are always right: People who think their way of thinking is the only way of thinking. Drives me crazy, and I just can't stand their closed mindness. Not everyone is prefect but our opinions are what makes us " ourselves"

2. Raising Cost of Fuels: Why do they need to sky rocket? What means is making it impossible for everyone to afford to go to work going to do for us? (as a whole) How is making it so people freeze to death, or take drastic measures to get heat helping us? I just don't understand, how people think...

3. Public Schools: Who think they are teaching children the right things. When in reality they are teaching them to be lazy, or pushing them threw the system to get them out of the way. Or the ones who think that everyone should know what they expect from their childs homework when there is clearly no instructions with it!

4. Potholes: Not fond of those nasty buggers at all! I wish that they could make roads that you aren't going to fall into a creator on your way to the other end! Or a road, that you don't lose your parts, or get a flat tire! UGH!

5. Bad drivers: Where do people get their license's out of these days? Are they still giving them out in the cracker jack box? I hear down here in Florida all you have to know how to do is pararel park, they test is givin in a parking lot in under 10 mins... What the heck! Then they wonder why there is highway fatalities, and fender benders every time you turn around!

6. Lavish prisons: Ok my final grip of the night. Why is that people who commit murder or fraud, get to stay in a place that gives them 3 square meals a day. When there are people struggling to feed their families everyday! Plus they get state of the art excerise equipment, and a free ride to college while watching cable tv everyday!! What makes them any better than the rest of America??? I can get them needing some help to get a fresh start, if they truly want one, but isn't there other ways to do it?

Here are the 'official' rules: *Mention the blog that gave you the reward and comment on their blog to let them know that you have posted their award. You also have to list 6 things you value and 6 things you don't value. Lastly, you have to pass the award onto 6 other friends! *

So here are the six folks I'm passing this along to....

1. Di a "Fall has arrived"

2. Holly at "Our slice of heaven"

3. Tara at "Butterfiles and Bug-A-Boos"

4. Sarah at "Stinson Family"

5. Amy at "Price Family"

6. Dawn at "Because I said so"
