Sweet Blogger Award

Hi all,

I received an award today from the very sweet Janice. I honestly, as a rule, don't post these. It's not that I don't appreciate them, they do make me smile when I receive an award - but to me, these are a special gift to be treasured privately. But today I post them because there are 5+ people in my life that I'd like to give a little shout out to, and they don't necessarily have blogs to post these on to continue the chain.

I'm supposed to share 10 things that make me happy...

1. My faith in God. I claim His promises everyday and although sometimes its very hard to wait on Him, He doesn't let me down in the long run.
2. My children. They are amazing!
3. My family - for their unending support.
4. My friends - for their unending support.
5. My crafts, although my craft room isn't a place I've wanted to be lately but I pray the current trial in my life will resolve itself and I can be myself again.
6. Books - there's nothing happier than curling up with a good book, a blanket and a glass of white zinfandel.
7, 8, 9 & 10 - I'll have to get back to this someday.

Now I'm supposed to tag 5 friends and this is where I wanted to give my shout-out.

Joni Wilson - one of my dearest, most respected friends who is a constant source of inspiration to me, a shoulder to cry on when I need it and I know my name is always mentioned in her prayers.

Gabby Arriaza - another dear friend that I've never met. LOL Gabby is a cyber-friend and I feel like I've know her my whole life. Her unending support for me is very appreciated.

Theresa Winslow & Karin Lopez - my sisters that are my rock of support, my protectors when I need them and they are my very best friends that are also a constant source of inspiration to me.

The Design Team of Inktegrity - thank you for your kind words, support and sharing your creativity.

To a person who will go nameless.... thank you for helping me find my smile. I know you'll never see this blog post, since this isn't your thing, but you mean the world to me.

Thank you to every one of you.
