A Token of Friendship

I awoke this morning to this beautiful award from Kelly Marie at belle âme. She has a lovely blog and her other award recipients are very deserving of this 'token of friendship' award.
"This blog invests and believes the PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are extremely charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly written text into the body of their award."
And now I pass this award on to a few of my blog friends.

These are listed in not particular order and yes, I know there are more than 8 here. I could not narrow it down any further. These are the blog friends that I read on a regular basis and I know they check in with me because of their comments. These women make me laugh and cry, they inspire me to be a better person, and they motivate me to be more creative, more organized and more productive! I also realize that not everyone likes to 'play along', and if that is the case, please accept this award as a token of my appreciation and don't worry about passing it on. As I was proofreading this post, I noticed another comment on my Saturday post...Sharon from The Old Oak Swing also has me on her list for this award. I just met her recently and have added her to my side bar. I can see her becoming one of my favorites, as well.

Thank you Kelly Marie and Sharon for making my day.

Thank you very much for visiting me, on your way over from Kelly Marie! I am quite glad to have found you, and enjoyed reading through your posts. I read back to the "Scrabble" post and knew I had found a kindred spirit! My mom and I loved this game and I even took pictures of the completed board sometimes when it had funny or unusual words...! Look forward to visiting you often.
Please stay warm!

THANK YOU! This is so sweet - even though it makes me feel more than a little guilty for being such a blogging slacker lately.

I WILL be posting soon :)
