Liebster Award

liebster-award2A few weeks ago in the midst of my life spinning out of control I was presented with the Liebster Award {Liebster means sweetheart} by “A Slice of Life – Greatest Generation“.   I have recently met Judy the creator of the Greatest Generation out of my love for history.  And we are finding that we have a few things in common. It has been a joy to get to know her through her articles and emails. 

Her articles on her family prior to and during WWII are interesting and opens up a page of history that is not found in the history books.  “A Slice of Life – Life Lessons from the Greatest Generation” is all about how certain character traits were the foundation of an earlier generation and how those same character traits can help us in our daily lives today.”  I encourage you to visit her and you will find those life lessons from the people who unknowingly would shape our lives today.  Her family story has touched my life in a special way and I know they will touch yours too.

    1. The Nova was actually my husbands when we got married and the first car I ever drove. He literally bought it off of a little old lady who only drove it to church on Sundays, she lived in the next apartment where he lived.


    1. Thanks and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. It is always hard to choose because I enjoy all my blogs. Who needs books anymore??! Actually I still need my books!! 🙂


  1. Thank you Patty for your your kind words. I have enjoyed getting to know you as well…. and we do have many things in common. I especially like your words of inspiration because my faith is the most important factor in my life. But that was only one of the many reasons I nominated you for this award. You truly deserve it.
