Encouragement: Scribbler Award

Tuesday's Grand Connection Thought
by Mary May Larmoyeux

"Encourage me," said author William Arthur Ward, "and I will not forget you."

Sharon Ball (who writes the wonderful blog A Break from the Norm) sure surprised me last week when she presented The Grand Connection a Superior Scribbler award. Sharon encouraged me ... on a day when I needed some encouraging, I might add.

Before I announce my Superior Scribbler awards, allow me to share the guidelines:

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

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

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

4. 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!

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

Drumroll, please!

I'd like to present the Superior Scribbler award to (in alphabetical order):

Blessed Journal
: I love reading the legacy stories that blogger Karen Jordan and others share.

Culture Watch
: FamilyLife writers blog on what's happening in the world concerning two things that are close to my heart—marriage and family.

Experiencing Each Moment
: Blogger Alica transparently shares her experiences with SPD (sensory processing disorder), Navy Life, great books, Cystic Fibrosis, and her many roles.

FamilyLife Mom Blog: This blog is written by moms, for moms. I love to read about their joys, sorrows, and special "mom" moments.

My Book Therapy: This is a great blog for those learners who love to write. Award-winning authors Susan May Warren, Rachel Hauck, and Sarah Anne Sumpolec are blogging a book in 2009.

Thanks, again, Sharon, for the encouragement! As William Arthur Ward said, "I will not forget you."

And grandparents, may you and I be intentional about encouraging our grandkids. After all, encouragement is a priceless gift that not only connects hearts, but also legacies.

He is able,
