Rocker Girl (Ol' Broad?)


My buddy Linda, at "Are We There Yet?" has given me this really neat award, Rockin' Girl!!! Now, it's true that I love classic rock music as well as classical music with some genres in between. And while this award does not specifically apply to one's taste in music, I must admit I'm a tad embarrassed by the post that Linda chose to represent the reason for the award!

I am a smart alec, always have been and probably always will be. As Sanni says, it must be my evil twin! Below, you will find what Linda had to say that prompted this award...thanks, Linda!

"Last but certainly not least I present the fifth badge to Gracie of Echoes of Grace because she's just amazing! In the heat of Bakersfield, California she and her Hubman recently moved to a new home so she's been busy settling in there but that didn't stop her from doing a fun meme where she told us that even though she's a church-going lady she knows all the words to anything by The Doobies as well as "99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall"! How can that not rock?"

In further honor of my fellow "Rockin Girls," I am honoring the following:
1. Danielle B., a wife, mom, college professor and photographer. She has some of the same issues as I do and I always relate to her blog, BiPolar Diaries. She is an amazing photographer and I encourage you all to partake of her beautiful nature photographs! One of my favorites is her recent photos of a fishing trip, practically in her backyard, where they are joined by dolphin feeding! She is bravely fighting her way through life, with all it's mysteries, twists and surprises. Go visit and encourage! She is definitely a Rockin' Girl!
2. Then there's Loving Annie...She has come through a very difficult time in her life which could have defeated her. But not our Annie! She has come through this period with her head held high and much the wiser. In doing so, she has made us come to love her dearly and imparted her newly-found wisdom to us as well. This selfless lady volunteers her time in an emergency room which is certainly a way to see outside yourself! Please visit Annie, our latest Rockin' Girl!
3. Ruth, of a "Million Stories in the Naked City," is someone I do not know well. She is a friend of our Claire, our English red-headed imp! Ruth has suffered a tragic loss this spring but she hasn't lost sight of others. She lost her soulmate, her husband Mick. But she continues to share her thoughts on her blogs and certainly is a fine gardener. Visit Ruth and let her know how big your hearts are! She is certain a Rockin' Girl!
4. Shaz, at "Us Danes," has become a favorite of mine. I love visiting her big family with all it's excitement and their love of dogs! There is always something going on and she has a delightful way of sharing stories of this wonderful household! A mom of six with a great dane and another dog certainly qualifies as a Rockin' Girl!
5. Linda, of "This and That," is going through a rough time of it right now. But her spirit is strong and I know she'll persevere! Let her know we all look out for one another and let her know you'll be thinking about her in the days ahead and pop in and say "hi!" She recently found that which was lost and is delighted to show her daughter her baby photos, which she had never seen before! Linda is one of our Rockin' Girls!
Ladies, I salute you! Please copy your banner, add it to your sidebar and honor five more women who you feel deserve it! Have fun...
Love, ♥♥♥
Gracie

Loving Annie said...

Grace,
is it your birthday today ? Mimi had something up that Mo wanted us to wish you a happy happy.... and if it is, very happy b-day to you, sweetie !
I hope you and Hubby do something lovely today --

Linda said...

Now Gracie, I see nothing embarrassing at all about you knowing the words to that song and I thought it was hilarious that you had listed it! I was saluting you more for your sense of humor than for your musical talents!! Which as long as you can hum in pitch, you're doing so much better than I who is about as musically-challenged as they come.

Even if you only knew the words to "Old MacDonald" I would still think that you were an awesome rockin' blogger girl because you are!!

Linda said...

Gracie, Thank you so much!!! This is turely awesome. I will post my five on Monday. There are so many rockin bloggers to choose.

Happy Sunday to you.

Travis said...

You do rock! And it's not just about music. It's about the all around wonderful blogger that you are.

Happy Birthday!

Desert Songbird said...

Oh, Gracie, Happy Birthday! You're not old, and you certainly do ROCK - you're kind, compassionate, grace-filled, intelligent, and funny. What more could we want?

Crazy Working Mom said...
