From the author of the award:The thing that I love most about blogging is that I learn so much about a person just by reading his/her blog. I have met MANY wonderful people with wonderful stories to tell and I am grateful every day for each person whom I have the pleasure of crossing paths in life with. I wanted to create something special for the top ten people who have inspired me through their blogging; the stories they tell, and the lives that they lead with grace and dignity. I visit their blogs for inspiration and encouragement.
I've been nominated by Atet for the "You Make Me Smile" Award.
Most of the time I wince when I see these awards floating around, yet blissful in my anonymity, and not required to further nominate others.
This was totally different. This was something I could get my head around. Thank you Atet.
I was once described by my boss to his friend (who can never keep a secret!) that I was a "simple girl and hard worker." Um yeah, that pretty much says it all. I don't go for fancy or complicated, and I love to work hard. My family is the most important thing to me, there isn't a day that goes by that I don't talk (or text) (or blog message) one of my grown-up kids who live thousands of miles from me. And btw, my dh IS my life, my shining star, my *sigh*.
I am pleased to be awarded, and I've got the perfect choice for the person I wish to nominate in turn. Have you ever read Dorothy's blog? Does she know you read her blog? Have you left her a comment? I know she'd be pleased if you left her a little luv. Does she know I read her blog at 4:30am in the morning? Does she know she is the first blog I read every morning? Tongue-in-cheek humor, and boy does she get cheeky sometimes, lol. Does she know I followed her from About.com and was tickled as punch to be able to read her blog?
Dorothy makes me smile. and smile some more. Thank you Dorothy. Go forth and pass the smile, I hereby award you the "You Make Me Smile" Award.
And if you would also like to accept this award, please do so unselfishly. You deserve it! Oh come on, at least 9 of you!
