Award Envy

About 10 trillion years ago...okay maybe a BIT of an exaggeration...about 2 1/2 months ago Tam over at Time for Twittering gave out an award to her 1000th visitor...who as it turns out was Joy M. This is what she received....
I couldn't believe it! Don't get me wrong...I am crazy about Joy M and I realize God doesn't want me coveting awards or really coveting anything...at least from what I understand...but I wanted my own award. I mean had I done NOTHING to merit an award...and I might have even spouted as much at Tam...

Then Tam, being not only a wonderfully sweet and giving person, but also a mother to three children, developed for a handful of us...our own award. Thank GOD she included the first 5, or I would have been empty handed yet again! So on Friday, June 2, 2006, she awarded the "FIRST 5 COMMENTERS AWARD" and THANK GOD, I was numero cinco! Here it is....

We had been trying to figure out the lettering and the HTML for it to go on the sidebar and having a heck of a time. It was eventually left alone for a while.

Then today I'm just surfing around and I feel so award-less again (as I compare myself to other blogs) so I dug and dug and dug...where was that thing...and I pulled it out of the archives and added some lettering...though probably not the very best...but good enough for now...and now I'm going to put it in my sidebar so I won't be awardless anymore!

It sort of reminds me of my one other award so far in life. After having served diligently on our H.S. drama team in plays, musicals, and even student directing, I was sitting in our awards banquet prior to graduation just moaning and groaning about the same people getting all the awards and MOI never getting anything...I mean I almost didn't hear the announcement of BEST THESPIAN...and my mom or best friend said...

"He just called your name, Kim!" (uhm...yeah...red faced girl in the back sitting there arms crossed lamenting her LACK)...

Oh...what...who...me? I never dreamed....I'd like to thank the academy...er' the drama department for this incredibly unexpected, but so deserved desired award! Thank you, thank you...I'll be doing autographs after the banquet...

That, my friends, is my less than pretty side! EGO-GIRL! But, hey, I've got my award now! and YES it does feel wonderful!

I am green with envy.

It isn't pretty.

Nary an award have I garnered in lo, these almost TWO MONTHS of blogging!

I think I have an ugly side or two now....

Wow! It's even cool looking! ;)

Now don't go getting everything in a wad, sisters! I've been blogging for almost 2 years and have never won an award. *sticks bottom lip out and hangs head in shame*

Oh boo hoo!! I think I will start handing out awards just for the fun of it to anybody who thinks they desrve one!! Howzat sound girls, who wants an award hmm...?

GOTCHA!!! LOL.

Kim , I am just the same, I love getting awards and things and often feel all sorry for myself when I don't - innit silly hey? When I catch myself doing that I feel all embarrased and stoopid and then I rebuke myself for acting like a kindergartner- LOL!!

Hey Girl....I totally relate to you! I know the old " pick me..pick me" mentality that comes on me when theres' prizes or awards being handed out! I'm always pretend that I'm ok with not getting anything...but deep inside I'm hoping against hope, I'll get one anyways!! Congrats on yours! It's lovely...truly,,,!!

Each of us longs for some type of recognition at times! So don't feel too bad! And I have a very similar awards banquet story, but when they called out for "Female Vocalist of the Year" I said the girl's name who I thought would get it, but the teacher said my name. My boyfriend had to push me out of my seat!

Good grief Kim! If I realized it was something you wanted, I'd have given you some of mine long ago. You so deserve every accolade for being such a seeker of God's heart. If I had such an award, I would give it to you. But being that I'm not crafty (remember meme post, point 6?), I'll just have to tell you that you so totally rock for God!

You are SO totally funny! I am almost embarrassed by the silly award but I am humbled and so pleased that it brought you joy!

The lettering looks just fine to me! The HTML lessons seems to be doing you some good...was it the book? The husband?

I love you Kim! I am proud to call you friend!

Hey! Don't knock my Bozo Button! I happen to like it!:-)

I'm crazy about you too, Kim! You make me DIG deep into my soul and into the Word. There are a few blogs I enjoy reading regularly but yours is the MOST THOUGHT PROVOKING!

I would make that a button, but I don't know HTML. Sorry.
