It is only fitting that after writing a post about ‘public praise‘ that I should receive two award nominations in one week.  Oh, the irony.  Thank you Valerie R Lawson for the Sunshine Award nomination and thank you  MommyNot Friend  for the Versatile Blogger Award nomination. I will say that it is really cool to have my blog noticed.  There are many reasons that I blog, and one of those is to have other people read my words, think about them, and create dialogue.  I thank both of you for being a part of my blog by commenting, and now by recognizing it in this way.

For the Versatile Blogger Award, the rules are:

Thank the person who gave you this award.

Thank you Mommy Not Friend for the award.

Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly that are excellent.
