An Award for me??? What a nice surprise (shock)!!







I was so happy today for my friend Jane Bussey from Triberr.  I saw that she won a blogger award and was going to congratulate her.  Her blog is http://awritersmuses.blogspot.com.

As I was reading the post about her award, I saw that she had to give the award to 5 people as well – and there was my name!!  I was so excited.  I love blogging, and she recognized me for it.  So nice.  What a great feeling.

Now I have to tell 10 things about myself (only 10 – lol) and name 5 bloggers who deserve the award as well!

10 Things about me –

1.  I am a very confusing person, even to myself.  I swing from being really friendly and happy to being totally bedridden with depression and fear.  I can be like a bear in it’s cave – don’t come in!!

2.  Being diagnosed as Bipolar was so enlightening, it explained so much in my life going all the way back to grammar school.

3.  I am so blessed to have the best husband who loves and supports me in every way.  His name is Bruce and we have been married since August 4, 1984.  It feels like only yesterday!

Bruce and Sally











4.  We were married on the 50th anniversary of my grandparents.  That was magical.

5.  I was a dancer and a choreographer.  Loved musical theater.  My bachelor’s degree is in Theater.  I was a pretty good actor and director, too.  LOVE improvisation.

6.  My husband and I have been ordained ministers for almost 25 years.  We don’t pastor a church, but we do minister whenever the opportunities arise.

7.  We did a missions/pastoral trip to Nicaragua in 1992.  It was an amazing experience.  We took baths from rainwater barrels, had to bring our own toilet paper when we visited villages, and preached in separate open air areas for men and women.  It was life changing.

8.  We spent 11 1/2 years dealing with infertility treatments, and never had a baby.  I got pregnant one time, and the depression after I had a miscarriage just about did me in.  My husband took me to St. Martin with frequent flyer miles and free hotel points to recover.  He is my angel.

My Buddy











9.  I have an amazing dog that I rescued myself on the highway when he was about 4 months old.  He is my baby, even though he is over 9 years old now.  He told me that his name is Buddy when I picked him up and fell in love all those years ago!  I call him “beaglish” because he has a little mix in him, but we don’t know what it is!

Mickey and Luna cuddling











10.  I have two amazing cats.  Both were adopted as kittens from a local rescue group a few months apart so that they could be company for each other.  They are so different, and of course have a lot in common.  I love them so much, and they are endlessly interesting and beautiful.

Ok, now you know TONS of stuff about me!!
