This is Exactly What I Needed...

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you to two of my favorite blogging buddies, April and Laurin for honoring me with this award today. I had a really bad day at the office today and when I finally had a chance to come online to see what everyone was up to, this what I found and was exactly what I needed to put a BIG SMILE on my face. Thank you both again for thinking of me. I loook forward to reading both of your blogs daily! You both always have so much to say and your blogs are truly an inspiration to me.

Windlebugs ~ Wendy, I feel so proud to say that I have new friend from UK. I really admire you for all the hard work you seem to do as a parent and seem to always take care of Ryan's needs before your own.

Thinking Out Loud with Jen ~ Jennifer, you are such a blessing to me. You have such a positive outlook on life. You have such a big heart for the Lord. I so love that about you!

Carrie's Little World ~ Carrie, I know that you have gotten this award at least once already. I just couldn't resist giving it to you again. You have such a beautiful smile! The first day I visited your blog, I noticed your smile right away. When I click on your blog to read updates, it's like I can already see your big smile before your page opens! Okay, you can stop blushing now...

Whew! This was REALLY hard. Congrats to you all for your SMILE award! Thank you all for putting a smile on my face each day. This blogging world is truly a blessing to many of us women folk and it been a real treat for me getting to know more about each of you!
