What a Surprise!

What a wonderful surprise to receive a message from Sandy at One Day at a Time telling me that she left an award for me at her site. This is the first award I've every received in the blogging community -- and I'm humbled. There are so many incredible bloggers out there who do so much in their lives -- this award really means a lot to me. Thank you so much Sandy!

The description of this award is:
These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.
Now, I would like to pass this award on to eight others who deserve it.
1. Kristen-Over at Lady Bug Blessings
2.Nicki & Mathis-Over at The Kenningtons
3. Beth & Ezra- Over at Manic Mother
4.Joy-Over at Joys of Home
5. Rebecca -Over at Chow and Chatter
6. Angie-Over at Angie's Appetite for Life
7. Tabitha -Over at A FiveOh4 Uplifting
8. Mimi-Over at Devotional Daze
If you have a moment, stop by and congratulate them
and spend a little time visiting them.
These are some very special people who share their blessings through their blogs. I'm very happy to have stumbled upon their sites -- and I hope you enjoy them too.
Today I Pray...
...with gratitude
for all the new friends that I've met
since starting this blog
...thank you for sharing your life and
your talents so freely with the world
...your blogs motivate and inspire
Uplift and refresh my spirit.
