Apologies and Awards

Oh, Dear Ones, I have an apology to make to some of you. We all know how we love to receive awards from each other and I am no exception. After Christmas some of you Dear Ones bestowed upon me some very lovely awards and some tags. I was a little slow in getting to them because of all the hustle and bustle of the holidays - then my Mother fell and broke her arm. I totatlly forgot about them! So please, if you were one who thought of me with such sweetness, from the bottom of my heart I apologize for not posting about them. I didn't even write anything down! I thought I would remember! Well, I'm not as young as I used to me, I know, you can't believe it! ;) I love you all and I really do not take these awards lightly. I thank you so much for thinking of me and appreciate your friendship. If you remember who you were, just let me know and I promise I will acknowledge the wonderfulness of each one of you.

Now, I'm doing better and will not forget to get to these awards as quickly as I can. I feel so blessed to have sweet friends who think I'm deserving of something. It's very humbling.

My dear friend Chris at http://chrisscorner-chris.blogspot.com/ has been the sweetest one to pass this darling Sisterhood Award on to me. Thank you, Dear Chris, for thinking of me as your blogging sister. I'm very honored and my heart is full of sisterhood love! Thank you!

The rules of this award are:

1. Put the logo on your blog or post.

2. Nominate at least 10 blogs which show great Attitude and/or Gratitude!

3. Be sure to link to your nominees within your post.

4. Let them know that they have received this award by commenting on their blog.

5. Share the love and link to this post and to the person from whom you received your award.

Now here I go, bending the rules a little bit. But on this one I truly can't just pick 10 sisters! So, if you're a regular commentor on my blog, please take this award and know I already consider you my sister! Bless you all!!

**************************

My sweet friend, Catherine at http://catherinesteacups.blogspot.com/ has passed on this "Let's Be Friends" award to me. Thank you so much dear one.


Here's the meaning of this award:


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.”


Oh, this applies to everyone I visit and it is so hard to decide, but know I consider everyone of you who comes to see me 'my friend and you are exceedingly charming'! I will try to pick a few new friends for this award:

1. Tracey at http://comfylittleplace.blogspot.com/
2. Mona at http://wsprsweetlyofcottages.blogspot.com/
3. Lindar at http://ninasnest.blogspot.com/
4. Riet at http://quiltinnstitchinglady.blogspot.com/
5. Kathy at http://kathleengauthier.blogspot.com/
6. Marty at http://astrollthrulife.blogspot.com/
7. Mildred at http://nalleyvalley.blogspot.com/
8. Judy at http://dishingondecor.blogspot.com/

Again I have been honored by receiving another award I haven't seen before "The Best Blog Thinker" Award by my friend Marty at http://astrollthrulife.blogspot.com/. Thank you so much Dear One for this award. I truly do appreicate it.


The rules are to post it on your blog and pass it on to 10 other deserving bloggers. Again every one of you inspire me in some way and I love coming to visit you all! You are all wonderful in my book, but I will try to follow the rules and list 10!

  2. Happy Pink Saturday and congratulations upon receiving these well deserved awards, Shelia.

    I put a poll on my sidebar. If you stop by, it's at the top. I begin my third year in blogdom, March
    6th. That's when the poll ends. Oddly enough, I have a pretty good idea of the results, but thought it would be fun to poll folks!
