The Thinking Blogger Award Goes to Deaf Mom


Angie Lee from What Floats My Boat has bestowed the Thinking Blogger Award on this humble blog. So if you'll excuse me, I've got to get my hair done and pick out my evening gown. And a speech, I must have a speech!

All kidding aside, while reading Angie Lee's blog, I came across her poem about American Sign Language. Angie Lee's husband, son and step-daughter are deaf. Here's what she wrote:

Seeing your hands in conversation
Is witnessing the most beautiful symphony ever composed.
A world full of words
Dancing gracefully from your fingertips . . .
Music in motion,
A melody I see with my eyes and hear with my heart. . .
And having listened, I now know the meaning of harmony.


Beautiful!

So of course, this got me to thinking about other blogs that make ME think:

Glenda Watson Hyatt at I'll Do It Myself

Phil Gerbyshak at Make It Great!

Wendy Piersall at Emoms At Home

Mark Drolsbaugh at Drolz Uncensored

Terry Starbucker from Ramblings of a Glass Half Full

Dawn Colclasure from Dawn Colclasure's Blog

Check them out-- you'll enjoy the read!
