This week has been a busy week filled with a many bloggy surprises...all of them fun!!!!!
My sweet friend Moorea of Homeschooling Sentiments recently attended a shower for her future SIL and each guest was given a copy of a book titled, "Created to be his Help Meet." Now ladies, let's not behave as if we have bees in our bonnets, isn't this exactly why we the female species was created, to help men be more complete and whole? We balance them out, provide tenderness for their rough and tumbly exteriors, and cradle their hearts when they become wounded.
So anywho, in honor of her new SIL Jen, she (Moorea) had a book give-away and I won the book as well as a beautiful bookmark with a crown and crystals. I'm really excited to start reading it (sorry Moorea, I haven't started yet ;-O) to see what it has to say and hopefully it will give me some perspective on being a better wife. I think most of us could agree that a little work in that area can always be a good thing, right? Of course right! I'm glad you agree.
Moorea, thanks for drawing my name and picking me...I'm ever so delighted!!!

I was also nominated for an award this week from the talented Dee over at Runako Designs and the Academy, but I asked NOT to give an acceptance speech since I always become tongue tied and look so foolish plus I might trip down the stairs leaving the platform. But I would like to thank Dee for nominating me for this exciting award, the Academy for being such a source of inspiration and support, and my wonderful friends and family. Oh, I guess I gave a speech after all ;-).

Now for the rules:

I must pass this award on to fellow bloggers who I think are Fabulous!!!! If you have been nominated for this award, you must pay it forward! You must post an acceptance speech on your blog (feel free to thank the academy!) and then nominate as many other blogs as you wish, and, if you have been nominated, feel free to post the above award proudly on your blog!

I am going to nominate the following Fabulous bloggers:

Deborah (Darling Deb) of Midlife Poet
Rhonda (Rooty toot Rooty Roo) of Roo's Treehouse
and Sandra (Sandra, I don't have a nickname for you, I'm going to have to think one up ;-))
of Romantique Inspirations

You are all Fabulous!!!
Thank you Dee and the Academy!!!

PS: A word on awards!
Recently one of my darling bloggy buddies gave me an award and asked if I was accepting them since mine all vanished from my blog. The answer was yes, but my page was loading ever so slowly that I decided to remove them as well as other accoutrements in my sidebar.
But every time I receive an award I'm so touched that you have thought about me and my little blog and I'm reminded that there are so many wonderful women out there that I never would have met had I not fallen into this wonderful world called Bloglandia.
Thank you so much sweet ladies, for enriching my life.

xoxo Cori

Congratulations on your Blog Star Award Cori... you are a star in my eyes too, but I would have to add some kind of comedian award with it for you as well. Like you I'm not good with speeches either, even though yours was quite thoughtful. I want to thank you for having me one of the chosen ones for this award. I appreciate it very much! Deciding on a nickname, hummm very interesting.

Thanks Cori, I'll be catching up with you soon. Take Care-

One more thing- let us know what you think of the book. I know just by being in the word of God has help me be a better wife to my husband.

Marye said...

I am glad that you are not that little girl anymore and that you have found your voice.

You have a wonderful blog Cori.

Love Renee xoxo

Cori, you made me giggle. I always knew you were award-winning. Congratulations!

I had to take my awards down for the exact same reason. I also removed a few "blinkies" I had displayed.

Miss Gracie's House said...

That is a good book-I read it a few years back...challenging at times:) Yes, it is one of our main (God-given) roles here on this earth.
Congrats on the awards!This is a great place.
Have a great day,

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Congrats on your win Cori! That looks like avery enjoyable book!
I agree about Blog awards Cori -- they are touching and sweet. I feel as if I've has so many I'd like to give new bloggers the chance to be thrilled by them so I ask not to be formally given them anymore
Hugs. Pat.

Moorea said...

Glad you are looking forward to reading the book Cori! I threw it across the room and cursed a time or two! My husband is blessed- it has brought me back from the brink of... well, as Debi puts it, blaspheming the Holy Spirit. Praise God!

Deborah said...

Duchess of Tea said...

Hello darling,
I am back and have missed you terribly!! I have a post on my blog that explains my lengthy absence but enough of that, I just wanted to stop by personally to thank you for the sweet birthday wish you left Cristina and to let you know that your kindness meant the world to us both. I am now off to read the posts that I have missed and to look around your gorgeous blog.
Love & Hugs
Duchess ♥♥♥

Someone I met on a plane suggested that book to me too...but I haven't read it. Let me know how it is I might have to borrow from you...which btw I still have your other book. But that's why we'll need to get together soon!
