Thank You

Recently I received a nice acknowledgement from Iowa Grasslands. He has awarded me with the Arte y Pico. I don't consider myself particularly inspiring, but am honored that someone may have gotten some inspiration from me at some time. This beautiful award, pictured here, has the normal blog award rules.
"This award was created to be given to bloggers who inspire others with their creativity and their talents, and for contributing to the blogging world in whatever medium. When you receive this award it is considered a “special honor.” Once you have received this award, you are to pass it on to 5 others. What a wonderful way to show some love and appreciation to your fellow bloggers!The rules for passing this honor on are: Pick 5 blogs that you would like to award this honor to.Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone. Each award winner has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the award itself. Award-winner and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of “Arte y Pico” blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award from Arte Y Pico."

I don't tend to read very many blogs on a regular basis. The ones I do read, I enjoy quite a lot though. Since I don't read many and some of my reads have deservedly already received a Arte y Pico, I will give you my best list of inspiring reads.

Father of Five is a Dad from MN who I read on a regular basis. Just the fact that he and his spouse have been able to keep their sanity while raising five kids is inspiring.

I was also fortunate enough to be honored with an award from one of my regular reads, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. The diamond award recognizes blogs of excellence and reading enjoyment. Many of my favorites have already received this award so it is difficult to choose whom to bestow.

Iowa Grasslands is a blog relating stories from the Midwest. Russell seems to effortlessly post on a vast variety of topics and is always entertaining. His nostalgic pictures also add to the interest of his topics.

I know my lists are short but that doesn't mean there aren't many more deserving blogs. Like I mentioned earlier, most of my reads already have won one or both awards. Go ahead and try them to see what you think.
