Thinking Honor

Gawilli of Back in the Day graciously selected me for a Thinking Blogger Award in her entry of April 30th. Molly of The Molly Bawn Chronicles also honored me with the Thinking Blogger Award in her post on April 28th titled "Where Did I Put My Thinking Cap?" I am honored to be recognized by these two women, who are both fabulous writers. I am probably not worthy for this award; much of my blogging seems to be playing games. Since returning to the blogosphere, I have enjoyed playing the Fun Monday challenge, and then last week Daddy D and I attended Sunshine's Blog Prom. These are blogging events are fun, but usually do not require any of the higher level thinking skills. Maybe a major thrust or intent of my blogging expeditions has been to communicate with people throughout the world. I love getting comments and enjoy visiting other blogs.

Still, I have great respect and awe for many in the blogging world for their ability to make us think. I would like to recognize some of the blogs that encourage me to think. Here are the guidelines for selecting award winners.

The participation rules are simple:
1. If you are tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think.
2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme
3. Optional: Proudly display the 'Thinking Blogger Award' with a link to the post that you wrote.

1. Frema of What’re you lookin’ at is my lovely daughter-in-law. Frema, a crown princess of blogging, not only encourages us to think, but actually has encouraged so many of us to start blogging. Frema is so accomplished that she has been asked to teach a class on Internet writing at her Alma Mater, Saint Joseph's College.

2. PT, the pastor of my church, has a blog called Thinking About . In his blog, he encourages his readers to think about a variety of topics from Thinking about Vows to The Truth about Waco .

3. Cazzie of I Don't Do Mornings teaches the rest of the world about Australia's history in her fun Friday history lessons.

4. Margaret of Stargazer is an active blogger and fellow teacher from the state of Washington. She writes with grace about her family, her school, and many other topics.

5. PJ Librarian of The Magic of Books writes masterfully about children's books and occasional glimpses into her life.

I am so happy you nominated me, that is such a pleasure that you enjoy my Friday posts.
I like to come viswit your blog, because every time I do come on over I get to see a snap shot of your life. It is such an interesting one at that. :)

One must think highly of all people who write their thoughts out for others to see. Sharring is a good mode of operation.

Frema said...

Thanks for the nod! And congratulations on yours!

I will try to get to this because it is a very high honor. If I don't, just remember that I am just back from a big trip. There are so many blogs that make me think--how in the world could I choose?

Now I'll have to go check out these blogs. It would be easy to do nothing but read, but then i'd be in trouble in other areas of life....So I'll keep up with what I can. Yours is always interesting....
