I've Been Nominated!

Kathy nominated me for the Nice Matters Award! This is the first blog award I've received. According to her, "This award will be given to those that are just nice people , good blog friends and those that inspire good feelings and inspiration! Those that care about others that are there to lend support or those that are just a positive influence in our blogging world!" Thank you, Kathy. You are one of the special new friends I have because of our blogs. It has been fun to have a chance to get acquainted and get a glimpse into your world.

I appreciate the wonderful people I have met since I first entered the blogging world. There are such genuine people with whom I have much in common - and they are each so eager to share their lives and heart with me. I am supposed to nomiate 7 people for this award so I nominate
Tracey, Allison, Kim, Cindy, Tina, Dawn and Mrs. Wilt. I visit their blogs every day and I never go away disappointed. Each of them has opened their lives, their families, their homes and, most of all, their hearts to encourage and inspire me to grow and reach a little higher than I would have dreamed possible. Their faith and inspiration has lifted my spirits to new heights. They have shared their projects, answered my questions and told me about wonderful people, places and things. Through their blogs - and their sweet comments and responses to me - I see the world through eyes that are open wider and a heart that has grown bigger than ever before. They have motivated me to get going on home, decorating and gardening projects that I have let go far too long and they have helped me get excited about striving to finish redecorating and updating my little house. I feel that each of these friends has given me the gift of seeing everything from a new perspective and they have helped return the excitement I thought was lost to make my home a place of peace and grace once again. For this I thank each of them.

  3. Adrienne, thank you so very, very much. I'm so touched and honored. As I mentioned in my email back to you, as I read through your post tears were streaming down my face. Isn't it amazing that people we have never met in person can have such a huge impact on our lives - it's a gift - a true gift and I'm so grateful. Thank you Adrienne.
