Paying forward

For all my buddies out there who have bestowed this neat award on me, I have to say a belated thank you kindly. It also comes in this variety:
I am going to try to list y'all in the proper way. I always seem to have trouble with blogger getting this right - so here goes.

Donna of Cottage Days, a sister at heart for always
Karin, my special Peanut, of Countryfolk Keepsakes
Betty, my sweet and fun friend of She Sews Pretty
Tammy of Remembering the Good Old Days a fellow Tar Heel and lover of all old prim things!

And I know that there were a few others, I think. My only excuse is picking, canning, being married to Luscious who is enough to distract any sane woman, and mostly because I keep forgetting to do this.

Now I know that it is proper breeding to smile and say thank you. So close your eyes and imagine a possum grinning. That's me. Now open your eyes and thank the good Lord that particular nightmare is over.

Sincerely, I am always tickled when folks read my blog, comment on it and oh, the sweet friendships I have made in the past year. I believe most sincerely that we meet for different reasons at different places, stages and seasons in our lives. It is never by chance, it is by design. We are all somebody's special someone in each day. If you happen to look at the links, you can see who all my special someone's are. I don't list links for popularity or for any other reason than these folks have touched my life with laughter, inspiration, friendship and motivation.

I am supposed to list a few other folks to receive this award. I am going to list them here and hope that you will visit them. They are each one different and a gift to me.

Karen of Farm Girl Ga. Style
We are kindred spirits in our pioneer hearts and love of the Lord

Kady of StoneyHill Cabin
A friend for more seasons than I remember. This will be a clutter for her blog, LOL. sorry Kady. Couldn't resist.

Sandy of Sandy's Space What you see is what you get with her. Honest, simple and just good folks. Hi Sandy! Surprise!

and last but not the least at all is:

Melanie
My new friend across the Pond,of Jelly Bean Angel I cannot keep her to myself. I know you shall fall in love with her.

Okay, there you have it.
Please get to know these gals if you haven't already. They have enriched my life and I know everyone can use a sprinkling of happy each day.

Hi Blondie, thank you so much for the award- I've managed to put it up this morning before BOW class! I'll thank you properly in my next blog. I just wanted to get it up while I still vaguely remembered how to! Can you tell I'm a luddite? LOL

I've loved your blog too. Hugs across the pond- Melanie

This isn't coming at the best time, I just realized--
I am passing on an award to you. You may claim it by going to my http://sassafrasandgingerbread.blogspot.com/ and taking it to post.on your site.

Please, do not feel like you have to accept this award. Believe me, when I say that I will totally understand if you do not choose to take it....or if you choose to take it and put it on your side bar, that’s fine also.

Please in no way, feel obligated, as I will still adore visiting your blogs.

Thanks,

Joan

Congrats on your awards!!!
I have to tell you I finally found some Sweet Annie at our local green house to put in my garden.
I read once that you had some and it reminded me how wonderful it smells and how badly I wanted some. I was tickled when I finally found it. I have been looking for some for a long time!!!
:) AMY

Ladies,
Anyone reading this and wondering where I am - well, BLOGGER has put a block/hold on my account because someone reported me as a SPAMMER. I am not sure what that means - sounds so fat and untouchable - anyhoo, once they figure out that I ain't doing anything wrong, I will be back. Be sure and keep on the look out for my imminent return!
