Tara at Undeserving Grace
Janet at Nana’s Sweeties
Laurie at Heaven’s Walk
all three of these sweet ladies gave me a Stylish Blogger Award
Thank you so much!
The award stipulates that I am supposed to tell you 7 things about myself…
1) Somehow as a little one my nickname went from Beth to Bethie to Becky. I never cared for the name Becky and always loved my real name Elizabeth, because my Daddy had told me they had named me that because it meant “consecrated to God”. Though everyone knew me as Becky, in my early 40s I felt as though God spoke to my heart to go back to my real name, and so I did. In spite of being called Becky for 4/5ths of my life, it sounds “foreign” to me when someone calls me that now.
2) I would rather have chocolate covered peanuts, peanut M&Ms, or a Snickers than the finest chocolates.
3) I really, really wanted to be Shirley Temple when I was little, so I practiced “tap dancing” on the linoleum floor in my Sunday School shoes.
4) I was bedridden with rheumatic fever for over 3 months in 3rd grade.
5)I have no patience for any craft or project that is too detailed or “fussy” or takes very long.
6)I would rather wear my workout/walking clothes than dress up, though I have to dress up quite often.
However, in the summer I love to wear cool cotton dresses and skirts.
7)I have too many purses, boots, mixing bowls, and pots and pans…all of which I have an odd weakness for.
Thank you to all who commented on yesterdays post and are praying for my Mama and our family. It is a blessing to have my daughter and grandbabies here visiting and brings joy in the midst of the stress of seeing Mama declining.
I will announce the winner on Friday.
