just trying to keep cheerful while swishing dirty diapers (remember the cloth diapers our mothers had to use?)...one of the songs was a Wayne Newton song that many of us think of as "Dankeshane", but as I perused the web today I discovered what I suppose is the proper German spelling of the phrase Thank You as Danke Schoen. I don't know that I have ever actually heard the real song. But, I have strong memories of Mama singing this part (and only this) "Danke Schoen, darling Danke Schoen. Thank you for all the joy and pain." It sounds sort of wistful to see it typed out, But, when Mama sang the words (and I assume when Wayne Newton did as well) it had a decidedly upbeat tempo. Quite Cheery!
Anywho, I want to say Dankeshane, Darling! ;) to two wonderful bloggers and friends, 1 new and 1 for over a year (which in bloggy time is pretty good I think!)
Julie from Joyful Days and Kim fron Falling on His Grace. Both of these women are in love with Jesus, their husband, children and life. This sentiment and zest for all that is good is reflected in their blogs. You should visit and say hello!
The Lovely Award says the following: "These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.”
The Lord has blessed me greatly through my friendships in blogging. Here are a few of my bloggy blessings! (I am limited to 8 as I understand it!) I want to pass these awards to the following ladies!
Back at you Julie, at Joyful Days (I'm terribly late, it's been wild ride! My sincere apologies!)
And to you also, Kim, at Falling on His Grace (Thank you so kindly for sharing this with me! )
Thanks to all of you for bringing out the best in all of us through your humor and insight through your blogs! You each have made me smile, think and ponder many times.
