Thank you, Rachel, for the accolade. I hope I can live up to your expectations of me. As a nominee, my instructions are: Should you choose to participate, please make sure you pass this list of rules to the blogs you are tagging. I thought it would be appropriate to include them with the meme. The participation rules are simple: 1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think, 2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme, 3. Optional: Proudly display the 'Thinking Blogger Award' with a link to the post that you wrote (here is an alternative silver version if gold doesn't fit your blog).
These are my nominees:
I chose them because they all make me think of what and how to write everytime I visit their blogs. Grammie and Dine remind me so much of the happiness grandmotherhood brings and both challenge me to do beyond what I am currently able to. Virginia and Suzanne both inspire me not to stop thinking and not be afraid to write about what I think. Noemi and Connie together had the foresight to know that mothers enjoy family stories and seek other mothers (I should add grandmothers, too) and that friendship can make all the difference!
