Valorie of Facetfully, who writes some of the most interesting posts of both history and cool places in this wonderful land we call Oregon has nominated SimpleLivingOver50 for this award. I want to give thanks to her for noticing my blog and so many of the wonderful comments she has made to the posts I write. Valorie is pure inspiration and I know I can always count on one of her posts to make my day.

When I made the decision to write a blog just a year and a half ago my intentions were to simply create an online journal that would provide me with a tool to monitor the progress I would be making with fighting Type II Diabetes. It soon grew into an area where I found it fun to write down my thoughts and soon started reading other blogs and following my favorites. Fast forward I now have almost 2000 followers and many friends and blogs that I love.

Valorie, thanks again. I think I have rambled on enough here. My selections for the Encouraging Thunder Award are:

Ree’s Kitchen

Eat from Eden
Write & Run
I encourage you to check out these blogs as I have found them to become a part of leading a healthy life. Billy

    Bravo, kudos for a great job and gratitude for the comments…I am blushing after your gushing praise! So, do you live in Oregon? I don’t know that I was aware of that. Maybe I have just not remembered. Interesting nominees too!
