My blog and now face-to-face friend Dawn of Tales of the Motherland, http://talesfromthemotherland.me/, gave me the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award and it’s my turn to pay it forward. I’ve been granted a few other awards from other bloggers and have begun graciously declining offers to participate. They take a lot of time to do and I think everything there is to know about me is written in my posts. That said, since I just met Dawn, and in the spirit of the season, I’m passing the award on to some bloggers I haven’t honored in the past.
My mother. http://bestofbarbara.wordpress.com/ I helped her get her blog started and continue to assist with posting and photos. It has been so gratifying to see how writing has helped her forget some of her physical ailments and keeps her brain ticking. Check her out for some amazing stories about her 60 year marriage to my father, life in the 1950’s, and more.
I met Judy when we were both walking home from yoga and were waiting for the light to change so we could cross the street. We started chatting and have become close friends. She’s a doctor and shares stories about medicine and growing up in Alabama. http://drjcwash.wordpress.com/
Miriam http://bubbyjoysandoys.com/ and Marsha http://tchistorygal.com/ write from southern California. Miriam is a grandmother and advises on how to have a good relationship with your in-law children and other family matters. Marsha is a retired history teacher and reviewed my book, On the Trail of the Ancestors. She’s up to some crazy antics, including writing a novel.
Hugmamma http://hugmamma.com/about-hugmamm/ is Hawaiian and writes about many facets of life, including her ballerina daughter.
Ronnie http://morristownmemos.wordpress.com/ is another blogger I’ve met because she lives in a nearby town. I enjoy her musings.
