The Epically Awesome Award

Awesome Award

I’ve been nominated by B.G. over at Getting Through Anxiety for The Epically Awesome Award! I just want to say thank you, thank you, thank you! You are so sweet and I am so happy that I’ve met you here in the world of World Press! Please, if you are not following her yet, go on over and follow!

The Award Rules:

  1. I know you are Awesome, tell us why.
  2. You are my friends and tell us about others.
  3. Be creative. It’s alright if you can’t be.
  4. I give no questions to be fully answered but let yourself go here. Thank you.

Why I’m Awesome:

I’m not very good at expressing why I am awesome. I’ve always seen that to be a narcissistic trait! lol. BUT over the years I’ve learned that you do not have to be narcissistic in order to be confident and tell people what you like about yourself. So here goes!

  • I am a great wife and mother. I make sure that my family has all the love I can give and that they are very well taken care of.
  • I am able to look at and understand two sides of an argument.
  • I am empathetic to people. I believe that is why I always feel the need to make sure my family and loved ones and even strangers are doing well. If they are not I try my best to help them out. It’s just in my nature to understand and take care of people :).
  • I am incredibly clumsy! I find it endearing and quirky though, so that’s why it’s part of my awesomeness! haha.
  • I am creative. I enjoy taking photos and manipulating them to the style I like. I also enjoy writing poetry and blogging!

Who Are My Friends?

I can honestly say I have 5 really close friends. Christopher, Richie, Ana, Shruthi & Stephanie. These 5 right here have been with me through thick and thin. Many some of them I’ve know all my life, some for over 15 years and some for 4 years. They each hold a special place in my heart. They listen to me when I’m having troubles or I just need a good laugh. We get together as much as we can and I just love them to pieces!

Be Creative: (I wrote this poem last night for my son)

My blessing

As I lay me down to sleep,

I thank the lord for my boy so sweet.

I’m blessed with silly faces and laughs,

Squeals and giggles, from tickle attacks.

I’m blessed with tantrums and pouts galore,

Making me love him forever more.

Butterfly kisses and eskimo ones too,

My love for him stretches deep like the ocean blue.

I feel so blessed to see his smile every day

And I will thank you lord, for always.

  1. I love your answers Jen (hope you didn’t mind the questions!). You’re poem was great! I didn’t know you didn’t celebrate Christmas. Is that due to religion or just because. Just curious. I actually celebrate Hanukkah and Christmas.


    1. Thank you so much! I don’t celebrate Christmas because of my religion. I am Christian but we don’t celebrate holidays that we consider to be pagan. It’s totally fine, I don’t mind the questions. Why do you celebrate both? That’s interesting.

      1. That’s awesome :). And good for you! Embrace your roots! I’m proud that after 13 years in feeling more comfortable telling people why I no longer celebrate certain holidays. We have to be strong and proud of our beliefs ;).
