I cheated

You see that "I heart your blog" button over on my sidebar?

Muser gave it to me.  I was truly encouraged to be named as a blog she hearts, especially since I'd been MIA from the blogosphere for some time.  It helped me get back on the blogging bandwagon.

But I have a dirty little secret -- the gift was conditional, and I ignored the conditions.

Recipients of the "I heart your blog" award are supposed to complete the one-word answers meme (perhaps you've seen it floating around facebook and/or the blogosphere) and then pass the award along to seven new people.

Who makes these rules?  The person who designed the button, I guess.

I thought at the time that I put the button on my sidebar that I'd get around to posting the meme in a day or two.  But I didn't.  And the sky has not fallen because I broke a rule.  And you know what?  I don't think I'm going to get around to it.  

You have better things to do with your time than read my one-word answers.  

I've placed the button at the head of my blogroll on purpose.  I know too many fine bloggers to pick seven.  To all my friends whose blogs I follow: I heart your blog.


The Muser (aka Beautiful Mama) said...

Hmmm...I think you are my voice of God today...I was driving home from spiritual direction and listening to Alanis--this song in particular--(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aeGFu05xB-8). And I started weeping. The song's not a perfect reflection of agape, of course, but I have been thinking for a long time about how much my vision of God is often God-as-borderline-personality-disorder-mother (as much as we try not to project our parental experiences onto God, we do, we do), and the heart of that disorder is narcissism and intensely conditional "love". Anyway, as I was listening to Alanis, I thought about how my husband loves me--how much freedom his love creates for me because he is pretty damn good at the unconditional thing. And then I was thinking about how that has been part of what has given me the ability to begin to love my daughter with radical unconditional love and freedom. And how I think this sort of unconditional love is becoming my new image of mothering and, thus, my new image of God. Today I really _felt_ God's love for the first time in a long time. So, consider the conditions of the award revoked. You are hereby awarded an unconditional love "I Love Your Blog" award. :)
