A Cherry on Top

Good morning! I am so thrilled...I was given the following award, not by one, but by two WONDERFUL ladies. Thank you Kelly and Tami! I feel soooo loved!

These were my instructions to follow after receiving this award.

- Thank the person who gave you the award.

Thank you Kelly and Tami. You ladies are the best. I am honored to have gotten to know you and call you my friends. With the same number of kids, Kelly and I relate on many levels when it comes to family. And, Tami...well she has assured me that cereal for dinner now and then is okay. LOL!!!

- Copy the award and post it to your blog.

Done! (Thanks April for calling me today and holding my hand...it worked!)

- List three things you love about yourself.

The Lord has blessed me with a wonderful husband and great children and has given me the desire of my heart to be a SAHM so that I can take care of them and be very involved in their lives.

I have wonderful, compassionate friends who are always there for me.

I love to make people laugh.

- Post a picture that you love.
See the above photo...(I could not figure out how to get it here!) I need Blogger for Dummies!!!

- Tag five people you would like to give the award to.

1. My BFF, Kathy! Because she is always there to listen to me and never pass judgment. God as blessed me with a wonderful friend who I treasure very much! Now she has to start a blog and post this award! :)

2. My friend LJ. LJ is the most incredibly sweet sports fanatic I know. I love listening to her talk about all the sports stats and sports trivia that is stored in her head. And since I have boys that play a few different sports...LJ is always cheering for them. Some day she has to come visit me and watch them play IRL.

3. My friend Carol. The world's best Grandma!!! Despite her busy, busy life she is always so supportive of everyone and always seems to have just the right words to say. I love imagining you and your g/d zig zag walking...brings a smile to my face.

4. My friend Sheena. Another very busy SAHM who works very hard taking care of her family. Sheena is just one of those comfortable people who you can talk to about anything...it's like you have known her your whole life. And even though she is buried under Christmas projects at the moment...she has learned to check-in cuz she knows I will come looking for her.

5. My friend Joan. Who just like myself, recently started a blog. Way to go girl!! She has also ventured into the world of cooking...so proud of her. I know what it is like not to cook and not really want to some times. But she is doing incredibly well in boardening her cooking horizons. Yay!!! for stepping out into the unknown and conquering it!

I could list several other friends who deserve this award...but I know they have already received it...even more than once. You gals are incredible.

(((HUGS))) to you all!
