What can I say? I'm honored to have been included in anyone's list of thought-provoking bloggers, especially anyone as great as heather. Good to know someone else's mind gets invaded by my thoughts; comforting that this stuff isn't confined only to my head;>
Now, on to my awards...
ariel - This lady's got, like, 15 jobs and still manages to work on a relationship with her guy, Eric. Mostly, the reason I have to think when I read her words is because those posts get totally cryptic yet revealing all at the same time.
cagey - The host for the online book club in which I've vowed to participate. Books dealing with women's issues are not normally on my radar because I generally pick books that are pure fictional candy for my mind, and I'm looking forward to having reasons to discuss what I've been reading with other people.
melissa - She makes me think about writing more often and persuing freelance writing gigs. And, three kids born in her home with another planning to keep up the tradition. The post she wrote on that subject led to great resources for information on that topic.
nikki jo - Her experiences with giving her first born child, her only daughter, up for adoption have given me a long, drawn out pause on some things I'd previously believed about adoption.
recovering straight girl - I may not be a lesbian or ever be a recovering straight girl, but reading the thoughts and feelings of this woman help me appreciate a world outside my own, and I love that.
Congratulations to these five fantabulous bloggers!
