http://inspirationalgem.wordpress.com/ has nominated me for the Sunshine Award. I am trying not to repeat my thank-you’s for the same award. But this time I will because the award has a new face and I want to share it with you.
I thank-you for this award. It is beautiful. You have lit up my soul and hopefully I can remain shining for other people as I walk this great earth.
Thank-you again and big hugs.
I Am Blessed Today

I am being on the lazy side today since I had the biggest part of my work done yesterday. Besides, my sides hurt from moving furniture yesterday. Oh to be getting older.
Well not to side track, I was reading comments and I stumbled across a remark stating I had yet been given another award. I thought to myself, wow, cool, awesome. This made my day brighter.
And then I looked up at the window and the rain had left and the sun was shining. Thank-you God for this joy you have allowed me to have today.
http://inspirationalgem.wordpress.com is who honored me with the Liebster Award. I get so excited over these awards. I don’t care how many times I receive the same one or even a new one. It is a thank-you from a friend who thinks my words and thoughts are worth reading.
I remember telling my parents that when I grew up and moved out there would be no more rules. Sad to say as soon as I moved out I learned new rules about being a grown up and they weren’t the rules of my kind parents.
And the same goes for this award, rules, what can I say? I have to follow the rules or get the ruler. LOL
Here are the rules:
Each nominee must link back the person who nominated them.
Answer the 10 questions which are given to you by the nominator.

My nominations for these two awards are:
Vivi a very close friend of mine nominated me for this Wonderful Team Award.
Do you have any idea how it gives me goose bumps to know that I am accepted and a part of a wonderful team of bloggers? We are family. There is no doubt about it.
People with interesting and creative minds. Coming together as one unit. Having the ability to express ourselves through words and pictures. Being unafraid to share what is in our hearts. Knowing that no one shall criticize us for how we feel at this very moment. Sharing what our plans for the future are. Being able to trust that we can speak of our internal pain and know we are understood.
Thank-you so much Vivi. I have accepted this award once already, so I will not go into the rules of it. This reminds me of a song that I always craved in my own life, and find it more often than not here at the wonderful world of writing at WordPress.
have both nominated me for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award
Thank-you both blogger friends.
I will not go into the ritual of informing of anything. As there is nothing new to say about myself today.
I just want to say a big thank-you!!!
Vikki has nominated me for this award. I have been awarded this a few times so I won’t bore you with the routine questions and answers part.
I do although want to give credit to Vikki and say a big thank-you Vikki!!!
You are supposed to follow the rules by telling 7 things about yourself. Paying credit to the who who nominated you. Link back to their post. Also add nominations for this.
So I will nominate now.. I have been told that I nominate some friends for this or that reward more than once. I am sorry but when I think you are terrific, I have to show it!
