Very Inspiring Blogger Award


blogawardHello everyone,

A shout goes out to Raani York, http://raaniyork.wordpress.com, for nominating my blog series, The Champions Who Walked Among Us on my Walk On Blog for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award.

My Walk On series has turned out to be a big faith builder not only for myself, but for others as well. Examining the lives of women who have been forgotten or never recognized  has awaken power and strength within me I did not know existed.  The  courage, persistence, endurance, faith, struggles,humility, gentleness, compassion and kindness  exhibited in the characters of the Walk On women are rare jewels, which I hide in my treasure trove.

Thus, the Very Inspiring Blogger Award nomination from Raani York is very precious to me.  Once again, I thank you Raani for this nomination and on behalf of all those women who rose above the ‘I can’t do,’ to the ‘I can do’ and opened doors that allows women today to move forward, I accept it.

Women like Sophie Germain, Sojourner Truth, Clara Barton, Madam C.J. Walker, Golda Meier, Marion Andersen, and all the other women I have covered so far did not have an easy life. They came up against incredible odds, but they kept going and  changed the world.

So the rules are to post seven things about myself. Here goes,

  • I love cats and had two of them, but I don’t have one at the moment.
  • I am a fanatic when it comes to music and my tastes are universal.
  • I drink at least four to five glasses of Lactose free milk per day.
  • I read voraciously from all genres, both fiction and non-fiction and find it easy to lose myself in any book that I enjoy reading.
  • I get a kick out of dancing, from waltzing to hip hop, I love it.
  • I play chess, love bridge, bid whiz and spades.
  • A good night with four hours of sleep makes me happy.

Raani’s idea of putting the links to the blogs was a great idea, and I decided to follow in her footsteps and do the same.  Below are my nominees with their blog links, and please note I have not picked any of the blogs that Raani  and I both  follow. If I have not chosen your blog, it doesn’t mean that I don’t read your blog. It only means I have a limited number of blogs I can choose, and with sixteen I have already exceeded  my limit.

      Thank you. I am enjoying it. It makes me feel good to see that series being honored. Actually, I am being honored for women,who never got their praise, and I am humbled because they laid down a foundation that many of us do not recognize.
      Love you, Lady.

      Patti

    Dear Pat, I thank you for this award. I have been so lax in my blogging this year, and I know I need to get on it again. I will do my best to live up to it. Thank you again, it is most appreciated.

This blog documents the genealogy and the arrivqal of the Buehler Family out of Ansbach, Germany, who became the Biller family of Shenandoah Coyunty and Barbour County, West Virginia. It documents the research that I have done to establish the genealogy of the Buehlers' line that arrived out Ansbach. This is the direct line of my sisters and brothers that orginated from Johann Christof Buehler. The spelling of Buehler was changed somethime around 1786 to Biller.
