A Little Blog Business

This world of blog is so incredible. The possibilies for friendship are unending. Friends who would otherwise have no chance at all for connecting and getting to know each other. Our grandmothers and great-grandmothers would never have dreamed this could be!

One of my new blogging friends lives in my state! About 3 hours away from my home. Not far from some of my sweetheart's family. The opportunity for a face-to-face meeting is good. Marilyn at The Cutest Cottage Lamps is a very talented lady. We have begun to enjoy communications that foster our blossoming friendship. She honored me by passing along this award for blogging excellence. I hope you will stop by her blog and get acquainted. And see her fantastic lamps and shades. You will be amazed. And glad you did.
Now I pass this award on to ten friends whose blogs I enjoy. As they accept the award they will pass it on to ten more friends. I pass this award to:

1. Mary at Little Red House.
2. Katherine at Yellow Rose Arbor.
3. Rhondi at Rose Colored Glasses.
4. Rose at Classic Charm.
5. Cielo at
The House In The Roses.

6. Mimi at Listen To Grammie.

7. Cathy at Melodies and Hymnsongs.

8. Liz at Kentucky Bound.
9. Melissa at
The Inspired Room.

10. Tara at Days Missed On A Hammock.

A few days ago I was tagged by Kentucky Bound and given the task of writing a six-word memoir about myself. I share it here (after giving it much thought).

Held safe in God's Almighty arms

Now I ask these five friends to do the same.

1. Dawn at (4:53 am).
2. Kathy at Kathy's Cottage.
3. BJ at Sweet Nothings.
4. Paula at On A Rainy Night.

As I close this 'business session' my heart is touched again by the friendships and the joy blogging has brought to my life. Oh, what I would have missed if I had never ventured down this pathway. Thank you to each of you for opening your hearts and the doors of your homes and lives with me. Now, if I could only have a face-to-face visit with each of you! That would be perfect. Just perfect.

(Disclaimer: Blogger is - for some strange reason - messing up some of the spacing on this post. It frustrates me but I can't do anything to fix it. So, I must leave it and move on to something that really matters!)
