Yes, I know -- it's way too early for Christmas, but Marsha gave me this award:
I have a hard time getting in the spirit of Christmas -- it's worse for me every year and I feel grouchier every year -- so it touches me that Marsha feels I'm kind to her. I hope that I am but with me you never know. In the spirit of this award, I'd like to pass it on to Hilda, Sari (with good wishes for her new baby), and Lazy Cow. Sari and Lazy Cow make me think about mothering, with their posts about their children that are always written with such love and kindness. Hilda makes me think about the world with her passionate writing about how important it is that we pay attention to what's going on in our wider, global community.
