A Bloggers Heart

Well, am I embarrassed, I forgot to send notices to all my nominees yesterday, so for those of you who have already visited..I offer you this “oops” and will notify you officially so your readers can enjoy your nomination with you.  An older friend of mine, years ago would tell me whenever she made an “oops” that it was “intellect overload”, so ladies and gentlemen you now know, I am now an older, mature woman and I suffer from intellect overload!

Today I would like recognize a few more bloggers who also have a big heart and who have nominated for two more awards.

I would like to thank The Blazing Trail for nominating me for the Super Sweet Blogging Award. His page is described as ” Enlightening. Spurring. Strengthening”  That just about sums his page.  One comment I remember reading stated that she felt like his writing was a retelling of the story of the story of Christ.  That is how I feel when I read each story.  When I see a new post, I know to grab a fresh cup of tea as I await to be enlightened.


1. Give credit to the person who chose to nominate you.

2. Answer the “Super Sweet” questions.

3. Nominate a “Baker’s Dozen” (13) blogs.

    “Intellect overload!” Love it. I used to call it “busy teachers syndrome” but I like your statement better.


    • I will have to tell my daughter that one, I am sure she can agree. She was a preschool teacher before deciding to go into nursing. I did not realize you were a teacher – on behalf of moms everywhere, thank you.


      • optimisticgladness says:

        No. I am not a teacher. I work with them. I am a pediatric physical therapist in the schools. I have lots of teacher friends.


      • Oh my you deserve a big thank you!! It must be an awarding job!


      • optimisticgladness says:

        Very much so. I go to work and play. Most of the kids I serve are so much fun. I have the occasional stubborn kids and one “screamer.” But even they are improving. It keeps me young. Do you work outside of the home?


      • My daughter worked with preschoolers for 10 yrs and said the same thing, she got to play all day!! 🙂 But that said, she had some interesting ‘clean up” and I learned about the word “blow out”!! phew!! 🙂 I am an Administrative Assistant/Office Manager/Mission Treasurer. Part time too – I am amazing!! Seriously I work in a small office and we all get along and work together. While you get to play with kids, I get to play on the computer!


      • optimisticgladness says:

        sounds like you ARE amazing! 🙂 You must have the gift of administration. I am fully aware of “blow out.” Phew is right. I’m glad you like what you do. The other day, one of the little boys I treat said, “Are you scared of a tormato?” I said, “What? Do you mean tornado?” He said, “NO! TOR-MAE-TO. The wind storm. My cousin taught me that” I cracked up.


      • HA HA HA I love that, I will share that with my daughter. 😀


  17. Kerri says:

    Thanks for the shout out, and for giving me some new blogs to visit! 😉
    Merry Christmas to you and yours!!


  19. Lori Lipsky says:
