Convention of Statesmen


My Heart is Touched

Considering the state of our nation today, I often wonder if anything I do, both for America or God, ever makes a difference. Sometimes, as I read through the hate mail, I don't think so. But then every so often, a blogging friend drops by my blog and I get that little boost knowing there are so many good and righteous people out there. My blogging friends are the absolute best, constantly reminding me there are thinking people out there still.

So Kathleen, over at So Grateful to be Mormon gave me the Superior Scribbler award and wrote the following:

"candace, of “Dream a Little Dream,” is a defender of the American way. when i think of candace, i think of God and country. so many of her posts that i admire hit on American ideals, patriotism, and God. her blog is full of her political views, too. i didn’t join the Army (i joined the Air Force), but she is someone i would want in my foxhole with me. so often i leave her blog (or email alerts) and my heart is full and pumped up and i want to go salute an American flag again. this lady has spirit and guts that i admire."

My heart is touched and filled to overflowing with this beautiful thing you wrote for me. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

As always, there are rules to this kind of thing:

• Each Superior Scribbler must in turn pass The Award on to 5 most-deserving Bloggy Friends.

• Each Superior Scribbler must link to the author & the name of the blog from whom he/she has received The Award.

• Each Superior Scribbler must display The Award on his/her blog, and link to This Post, which explains The Award.

• Each Superior Scribbler must post these rules on his/her blog.

• Each Blogger who wins The Superior Scribbler Award must visit this post and add his/her name to the Mr. Linky List. That way, we’ll be able to keep up-to-date on everyone who receives This Prestigious Honor!”

Since I dipped my toe into the Blogland pool a year-and-a-half I've "met" a lot of wonderful people and enjoyed their blogs immensely in the process. So I've give this some thought, and it isn't easy to narrow it down to just five, but here are the blogs that make a difference for me:

Tristi Pinkston: Tristi is one of my favorite bloggers and I try to make it over to her blog every day. And if I can't manage that, I usually visit her blog on Sunday and read through the week's posting. Tristi is an amazing woman of insight and humor. A published author (fantastic books), a stay-at-home mom and a homeschooler, Tristi does it all and does it well. Lucky for me, Tristi is not only a blogging friend, she is a peer, neighbor and someone whose company I enjoy immensely. I am anxiously awaiting her new novel, Secret Sisters. Do you have a release date yet, Trist?

Laurie's Occasional (but not always) Deep Thoughts: I'm new to Laurie's blog but I became an instant fan with the first post I read of hers. It was so amazing I kept reading, post after post. She knows the Constitution. She knows America. She's a fantastic author. She understands the dangers we face. She's a wife, mother and really an amazing person. I've added her to my daily blog visits. As with Tristi, she inspires me and I am also awaiting her new novel, the name of which I do not know. Do you have a release date Laurie?

A Well Behaved Mormon Woman: Kathryn is an amazing woman. No matter which of her blogs I go to she stands strong for Christian values and for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She stands for family, God and America and I am constantly inspired by her.

Not Entirely British: Anne Bradshaw, a fellow author, screenwriter and friend, has a blog filled with great information, be it entertaining or informative. She is a regular stop on my daily blog travels and I wouldn't miss her daily posts for anything!

and last, but not certainly not least:

Jeffrey Denning: Since the moment I became acquainted with Jeff, he put in mind of a modern-day Captain Moroni. Standing for what is right, regardless of the consequence. A man of conviction and strength, he stands on the front lines of enemies of all sorts, defending so that we be free to speak, live and grow as we so choose. He inspires me to be a better person!

Note: If you love Sarah Palin, her policies, her stances and her love of America then join me on Team Sarah where those who love America as I do energize and support one another in our goal to take America back from those who hate her or find the Constitution wholly inadequate because it didn't, as Barack Obama put it in 2001, "go far enough on the redistribution of wealth."
