TWO AWARDS & Something different

I've been given this lovely award twice recently. On January 9th by Pam of Midnight Musings and back in November by Barbara of Ramblings from an English Garden. Since I've already passed this one on here I'm just taking the opportunity here to say a big "THANK YOU" Pam. You certainly are in my BFF club!!!

They say good things come together and this was true of this lovely award. I received it January 9th from Pearlie of Pearlie Gates and January 14th from Mari of 365 Days.

The Lemonade Award is a special one.......making Lemonade when life hands you lemons. This has been a favorite saying and attitude of mine for years. We all get handed some lemons from time to time in life and it's up to us how we deal with them. I choose to make that Lemonade!!!!!

The rules for the Lemonade Award are:

1. Thank the person who was so thoughtful for giving you this award by linking their blog to this post.
2. Put the logo on your blog or post.
3. Nominate 10 blogs which show great attitude/gratitude.
4. Link your nominee to your post
5. Comment them to tell them about the award they've won.

Instead of picking just 10 of you,,,,,, I am passing this on to EACH of you who read my blog and KNOW that you have earned this Lemonade Award because you've chosen to take some lemons life has handed you and made that sweet Lemonade. that.


SOMETHING DIFFERENT: I thought it would be fun to have everyone who reads this post to comment and put tell me what the verification word is for your comment. As I've left comments and done the verification letters I've just always thought it would be fun to know what ones are coming up on my blog. Sometimes they "almost" say something. Humor me PLEASE....leave me a comment and tell me the verification.

That's the slanty word.

I recently decided to remove this step from my blog. So far I haven't had any issues. (knock on wood)

Congratulations on your awards. I enjoy your blog so much. Your love for your family and for the Lord just shines and shines.

Hi Susan-

My word is "ingsrus"

I have had some funny ones a time or two!

1. Oboe win see
2. Or Best Offer when see
I can imagine there is a 'k' after the 's' and think it is a surname of someone from Polish decent.
Maybe it is even some Spanish word.

I always try to read those as a word or sentence.Maybe it shows I do not have too much going on in the upstairs :)

there I typed it wrong and have a new word, sploysi. I won't take you through all this again.

Betty said...


I removed this step from my blog also. It´s so much easier to comment and nothing "bad" happened...

Congratulations on the awards! I like the saying about making lemonade.

Maxine said...

Glad to humor you :) Congrats, by the way - you definitely make nice lemonade!

Mine just changed ... hmmm. I think it was shamul (or similar), but now it is aryogent.

Tammy said...


Sounds sort of...Spanish? ;)

Congratulations on your awards, dear Susan!

Crystal said...

Hey, Susan! The verification word is 'fuelotio" - seems quite different from all the others you've gotten so far.

Congrats on your awards - you so deserve them. Take care!

annie said...


Congrats on the awards!

Frazzled Farm Wife said...


You've had some pretty strange ones!

Linds said...

Can you believe I have a real word for a change!

It's All Good! said...

Ok, Susan, here's a fun verification code: likerewo
I had some fun ones too.

MightyMom said...

goofball. no, that's word is "deverign"

next you should have folks make up definitions to the words.... ;-)

weavermom said...

Congrats on your lemonade award! :)
It's funny that you posted this. I was thinking about this saying last night and thinking occasionally we get rotten lemons (such as the death of a baby, esp. one that is wanted so badly) that only God can make lemonade from? But, such a true saying - one of my favorites.

My verification letters are "matrab"

Pam said...


cute idea! But I don't think mine is a real word!

Congrats on your awards. Of course we all think you deserve them!

Loved and needed your most recent post on "Freedom to Be Quiet".

haha I mistyped my first word, so now I see - bactot

Tiffany said...

My slanty word is paicar.

Congrats on the award. You deserve it. You are always a blessing to me when I read your posts. I loved the post above. Silence is precious, as is discretion. ~Blessings!
