Last week, Cathy at Word Vessel gave me The Honest Scrap Blog Award. I took one look at the award logo and was humbled by the nomination.

Why? What comes to mind when you see this award? For me, I thought about getting hammered by life (and I’ve had my share of blows). I was reminded that I am scrap under construction. But mostly I remembered my decision to be honest through this blog because the journey gets tough and we all need a little encouragement.

Part of getting this award is that I have to tell you 10 honest things about myself.

1) I have climbed the tallest mountain in Colorado (over 14,000 feet high). Somehow.

2) I bake the best peanut butter cookies on the planet (according to my husband).

3) I sing in the choir and used to play the flute.

4) I’ve been to Israel three times.

5) I ran a half marathon in high school.

6) I learned to read when I was four years old.

7) I wrote a children’s picture book and am trying to get it published.

8) I don’t like seafood or strawberries or lots of other foods normal people like.

9) I know how to tape and mud drywall. (Check out my basement.)

10) I failed art in the 4th grade. (Ouch.)

I’m passing this award on to the following bloggers who tell it like it is. Thanks for your honesty.

Krista @ Krista’s Reflections

Jody @ Author, JodyHedlund

Kat @ Heart 2 Heart

Tiffany @ Tea With Tiffany

Evangeline @ Breathe In Breathe Out

Paula @ Grace Reign

Anita @ Beyond the Diapers and Spills

    The honest thing about myself: I eat when I am stressed….I over eat and that is why I am fat. I feed my heart instead of my stomach…a constant battle.

    >Wow. You can tape and mud drywall? That's awesome.

    Congrats on your award. You do have a stellar blog.

    I'd say Chip MacGregor's blog should get honest award. He's so brutally honest it's refreshing–stings a little sometimes–but it's honest. That's for sure.

    >Hi, Candee–

    I'd say you deserved such an award, and I'm honored that you picked my blog too! Thank you!

    I love honest people, even when it stings sometimes. Honesty is refreshing, and it let's us know we're not alone in our thoughts and feelings.

    Thanks for being yourself. πŸ™‚

    >Candee, I'm just seeing this post. Thank you for passing the award on to me – it puts a smile on my face!

    I'm a little slow with writing about awards, but you're such an inspirational person, that I may get my list together faster than I think.

    I enjoyed reading YOUR list. πŸ™‚
