Mom, I'm Proud Of You!


The start of a brand new blog, Gloria in Excelsis Deo, run by my own mother, Gloria! :) I love her title. It's so much more unique than "Julia's Journal". :P

I have been awarded by Miss Lauren Ann with this lovely award:


The concept behind this award is that the blog creators have shown an uncanny knack for silver linings and making the best of bad situations (i.e., lemonade from lemons).
Rule: Name ten blogs that reflect this silver linings philosophy.
All righty then, I'm awarding....
  1. My Mom, Gloria
  2. Joanna
  3. Madison
  4. Laney
  5. Mckenzie
  6. Jasmine
  7. Kaysie
  8. Ella
  9. Joelle
  10. The Meiners

(This was in no particular order) All of these blogs are great, and I had a lot more that could have been awarded.



Currently I'm feeling: Happy, and Excited!


  1. I'll go check out your mother's blog!

  2. Thank you for the award, Julia!

  3. Oh, how neat Julia! I'm about to go check out your mom's blog! Can't wait to see it. :)
    Oooh! Thanks SO much Julia! :D I look for silver linings? Really? Woooow. :P
    Oh, and thanks for your prayers for my dad! He is doing better. :)
    Oh, and one other thing: The way that you do reactions, is go to customize, and then click on blog posts, and there will be something there that you can 'check' and you can put in the reactions. Tell me if you're still confused!


  4. Julia, I love your new design! What a fun award...and I'll be curious to check out your Mom's blog!

  5. going to check mother's blog! Thanks for letting me know. :)

  6. How cool...but, I don't think that I look for silver linings, haha. Crystal is always saying how pessimistic I am. Lol. Thanks for the award, though :).

  7. Hello! I wanted to leave a comment for your mom at her blog, but she isn't set up to receive them from "unregistered" users like me! Anyway, she won my WORLD magazine giveaway! If you or she can come to my blog and e-mail me from there (in my sidebar) we'll get this set up!



Hi! Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog. I hope you are having an absolutely wonderful day. :)

Please remember to keep your thoughts and remarks kind and pleasing in the sight of our Lord.

I would encourage you to sign your name to your comments... otherwise it might not be published.

Sometimes it takes me a little while to get back to you... but I do try and reply when I get a comment. :D

Love & Blessings!
