    Yesterday my blog traffic sky rocketed and so did my spirits which heretofore had been broiled, grilled, blackened and served up Cajun-style by the summer heat.

    Jcougar_2After I checked my site meter referrals did some investigative research using my deductive reasoning and sleuthing skills, I discovered that I had won the prestigeous and “totally important and not-fake JCMHSGBAOE” award which is short for the John Cougar Mellencamp Hurts So Good Blog Award of Excellence given out by the fabulous Amalah over at Club Mom.

    And you know what the real honor is? That I was nominated by Veronica Mitchell of Toddled Dredge — a truly excellent writer with substantial things to say. Thanks Veronica!

      I am so tickled for you.

      And I mean that from the bottom of my bloggy heart.

      Glad the rest of the world is discovering what we’ve known all along.

      Amalah and Veronica – fabulous writers, no doubt.

      And so are you, my friend. So are you.

      Hey Antique mommy, i would like your writing even without awards. I want to finish reading your “best of’s”…as soon as baby sleeps more. You are a wonderful writer! I love reading you and BooMama.

      And i meant to comment after reading your “ABOUT” link…I just praise God for the gift He gave you in meeting your “tribe” :-)and opening your womb! It is such a beautiful testimony.
      Blessings to you!

      A well deserved recognition! Thanks for making us laugh so hard, but it hurts so good almost daily. (There. Does that take some of the pressure off?)

      You totally rock in that totally important and not fake way! This award so obviously made for you. Rock on sistah.

      I was grateful when Amalah named you. I am always relieved when I find another one of those “late starters” out there. It’s easy to start feeling like the grandmother of toddler mommies, and it helps to see other people being so good at it.

      Congratulations!!! Much deserved!
