Lots of Awards

Today is Sunday.  My thoughts turn to my blessings of the week.  I have wonderful kids.  I have a supportive strong funny husband.  I have a family that I love to death.  My family is mostly in good health.  Though Jason has a cold.  I got to catch up with my sister this week.  I joined an awesome Mom's group.  I have been blessed with the best followers.

Now that brings me to the awards that I have just won.  I must tell you that my eyes fill with greatful tears every time I receive an award.   I can't believe that people are actually interested in what I have to say.  So I feel blessed every time I get an award.

Jen @ Simply Me was so incredibly sweet to nominate me for this award, One Lovely Blog Award.  Thank you so much!  I appreciate it more than I can tell you.  Everyone please stop over to Jen's blog.  She has some awesome giveaways and reviews.

The rules of the "One Lovely Blog Award" are:

Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link. Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you’ve newly discovered. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.


Here are my 15 blogs I am passing this award on to:

So I'm playing along in the way she did.  I'm picking 5 blogs that are new that I am very happy to have found.

Jen, Lee, Flory, Chef Eureka, Angela and Lynn.  I appreciate it more than you can ever know.
