Also note there are two awards here.
I have been blessed with some of the best friends I have ever had through blogging. I'll never cease to be amazed with God's grace. He places the right people in our lives at the right time.
I can never say it enough that all the people I've met and had a chance to get to know have a special place in my heart. Each one of you have touched my heart in one way or another, and I thank you. It is hard for me to not pass each award on to everyone. But will stick with the rules. This award comes from sweet Valerie Lynn at Simply 4 God. What a beautiful heart she has for God and people. She is one of the warmest people and inspires me daily. She is a woman who's heart is for God first and is obviously a wonderul wife and mom. It's so obvious she loves her family. I'm thankful for the Lord bringing us together. What a blessing to have the opportunity to get to know people like Valerie Lynn. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your sweetness and generosity. You have inspired me in so many ways Valerie Lynn and give me the drive to be kinder, more loving. Thank you and God Bless You. I love you so.
And then there's this beautiful award as well. You are my sunshine as well Tami! I'm so blessed. Thank you Lord! What beautiful people He puts in our lives. Tami at Diary of a Mad Woman makes her own awards and then awards them to everyone. What a sweet, loving way of showing someone you care. If any one can give me instructions on how to do this sort of thing, please share. You can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org There are so many people that I want to make s special award for, but don't know how. :( Yes Tami, I'm whining, sorry.
But not to take away from this, I love you so Tami. You are a remarkable woman who just brings sunshine in others lives including mine. You are a ray of sunshine, so this award is very befitting for you. You are a friend I feel like I've known all my life. I can't wait til the day we do sit over a McDonalds iced coffee. ;) , to meet your mom and your family. You are a beautiful woman whom I'm so thankful God led me to you. Thank you for your wonderful friendship. Love and Blessings to you sweet friend and sister.
So please everyone that may not have received this award yet, please take it and place it on your blog, as everyone in one way or another brings sunshine into my life.
For the Lovely Blog Award one must choose 10-15 people to share it with. This is the hardest part of the awards. But like Valerie Lynn, I'll stick with the rules and choose. (Crying and boo hooing now. ) So here goes, just remember, I feel you ALL deserve it.
