I'm thankful today for this lovely Blessings Award passed on to me by my dear friend Merle over at at 3rd Time Lucky. Thank you very much, dear Merle. It's beautiful, and it reminds me to be thankful for all my blessings: Family, dear friends, my loving and cute pets , all the beauty of God's nature sorrounding me here, and so much more! And I am suppossed to pass this award on to three blogging friends who have been a blessing to me. That is hard, because all my blogging friends have been a blessing, and I would like to pass it on to everyone. But since the rules say I must pick three, here are the three I have chosen:
My old friend Tina at Tina's Odds and Ends. Tina and I have been friends for 9 years, more or less, and when we wrote for Suite 101, she was always a faithful visitor and commentor on my topic, and I never missed visiting her topic. I hope you enjoy this award, Tina!
I also want my lovely, young blogging friend Pia to have this award. I love to read Pia's blog. She has strong faith, uplifting messages, and is a blessing to her visitors. I hope you enjoy the award, Pia!
And the third friend I have chosen to give this award to today is Patti over at Nonna's News. I enjoy Patti's blog. Her love of family, and everyday doings is fun and inspiring. I hope you enjoy this award, Patti!
Finally, I also want to thank my friend Michele over at Writing the Cyber Highway for the "link of love!" How nice was that? Thank you, Michele. Whenever I need inspiration, or a little nudge in the writing department, which is often these days, I pop over to Writing the Cyber Highway. Michele, and all the young, enthusiastic writers that congregate there, never fail to inspire me, and get me off my duff! Thank you, Michele!
I also heard from Susan Reynolds, my editor at Adams Media for, My Teacher is My Hero, book. She said the book would be published in April/May, and we'll be getting our copies and checks at that time. WooHoo!
And, John Cali emailed me that the Dog Stories book has now been published and will be on its way to the contributing writers soon. Another WooHoo! Writers get excited about seeing their work published. And bloggers, like myself, get excited about receiving beautiful awards from blogging friends.
Well, I sure hope spell check works, because I have to get this published, and then scoot to feed the animals. Have a great evening, and week everyone!
