Double Awards


This comes from our dear sweet sister Tami at Diary of a Mad Woman If you've never visited her blog, please do so. You will be happy you did. She's a beautiful, loving, full of life woman. I always feel so blessed when reading her blog. She amazes me with how she can take a difficult moment and put it in a positive setting. I love that quality in a person. She has a beautiful heart for God as well. It really shows. I love you so dear sweet sister. Thank you for your blessings.
Now, I'm going to be very honest here. In one senes, I don't really care for awards, as if there are rules attached, it's very difficult and I don't like people thinking they don't mean as much. Believe me, that couldn't be further from the truth. You all mean a lot to me. We are after all brothers and sisters right? So I jumped at this opportunity to be able to let everyone on my blog roll and those of you visiting for the first time to please take these awards and pass them on. Share the love. No rules attached. But, why not tell us a little about yourselves along with the award. It's always nice learning more about our dear sisters and brothers.
I just want you to know I love you all. More importantly, God Loves You!!! You are His creation. May his blessings surround you and pour out onto you and your loved ones. May you be granted prosperity, good health, healing where it is needed, and joy in life.
I will leave you with this.

Congratulations on your awards, and what a nice idea to just pass them on.

In my mind, an award is something that should be given to someone because you think there blog is special or you've been touched by them in some way--not something that has to be earned by following the rules.

In the beginning I did try to follow the rules, but no more. And personally, I'd rather not get an award than get one with rules, because to me that isn't really an award at all. It's more like a chain letter of sorts, which I hate and usually break. LOL
