The Liebster Award


I woke up this morning and turned on my kindle. I needed to get to today’s Mass reading, because I’ll be lectoring at 8 a.m. Mass. Today is my Mom’s 51st birthday. After my tablet powered on, I looked at the notification and found an email “please moderate” from wordpress. Ok, I thought, cool! Another comment. I’ll deal with it at the computer downstairs.

Little did I know, it would be anything like Jhuls nominating me FOR AN AWARD!! I’m speechless, really. So how am I going to finish this post?
