Creative, Creativ, Kreativ
What a Grand way to leave on a pilgrimage by being given an award!
Julie from Random Meanderings presented me with the award. Talk about creative! Julie takes thoughtful ideas and spins them into a positively, spiritual, exceptional read. She very rightly received the “Kreativ Blogger Award” and has passed along this fun and deceptively challenging 7-7-7 award to me. Julia came in from her vacation mode to receive this award. She certainly surprised me, and I’m very flattered to know she considers my words to be creative. Thank you, Julie!
The 7 INSTRUCTIONS are easy to follow:
- Thank the person who awarded the KBA to you.
- Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
- Link to the person who gave you the award.
- Name 7 things about yourself people might find interesting.
- Pass the KBA along to 7 more Kreativ bloggers.
- Post links to the 7 new awardees.
- Let each of them know they’re now recipients of the KBA.
Here are 7 THINGS which I hope you will find interesting about me:
- My family had the first Television set in our entire neighborhood. My Fathers was so busy helping families with special needs children bond and grow strong, that we were given several wonderful and innovative gifts along the way. My Father saw many amazing possibilities for the future of television and gave me a love of new inventions and gadgets that assist folks in learning and growing.
- I took two classes from Fred Rogers in graduate school – you know Mr. Rogers from Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood. I found him to be an amazingly kind and dedicated educator and felt that his song, “You are special and I like you just the way you are” was personally written for me.
- We had a player piano upright grand when I was growing up. It was the hit of all the parties at our house and I loved being able to sing with accompaniment. My Father, brother and I replaced all the old air feed hoses in the piano and repaired and rebalanced all the hammers and pads.
- My own children experienced being the first family to have a home computer in our neighborhood. It was an Apple GS and the kids just really took to it and learned how to use it right away. My Grandmother left all of her Grandchildren $1,000.00 when she died and for me, my instructions included that I had to use the money to purchase a computer.
- I read Dr. Zhivago the Russian Novel at age five. Each character had so many names, my Mother had to make a list of all the names that were attached to each character so I could keep them straight. It was fun reading a book the same time that my Mother was reading a book, although we did not discuss the book. My Mother would not go see movies because she thought they were addicting and made you unhappy with your life, so we played the movie for her on her DVD player when she was over 90 and had lived a good life.
- I read the whole 26 volumes of the World Book Encyclopedia that my Mother bought to help keep us learning and to be good in school. I read each New Yearbook when they arrived. I also read all of the volumes of a compilation of all the greatest literature from England which my Grandfather owned and have since discovered that one of my cousins also read the whole set of those books too.
- My second grade teacher assigned an essay about what we did for our summer vacation. I had mumps and was too young to do any of the activities my brother and sister did at the University my Father taught at that summer (and I gave my Father Mumps – which was tantamount to having nearly murdered him) that I had nothing to write about so I created a fantasy vacation of a trip to Mars. The teacher labeled me a fanciful liar and put that on my school records, which followed me all the way through graduate school.
My second daughter wrote a book about going to Mars with her family and won a ribbon at the science fair when she was in 4th grade. It was the right time and the right place!
Now here are my picks for the next 7 awards: ( This was the hardest part of this whole award, because many of my favorite bloggers already have received the award and my list of favorites is so long and always growing!)
Again, Thank you Julie for the award – I feel honored to accept !
I hope this was fun! Who would you nominate for a Creative Blogger Award?
