And The Winner Is ...

Who me? An award? Thank you, thank you, thank you to my friend Nicole over at Heart4MyHome, . I never even dreamed I would be selected by anyone for an award, this is amazing! Again, thank you Nicole, you are so very kind. Now, so this award can continue to pass on through blog land, I'd like to recognize the following:

Tami @ Joyful Noise, ,for the beautiful photos & absolute peace that flows over me whenever I have a chance to stop by her blog for a visit.

Olivia @ Heart of a Southerner, ,for the wonderful history lessons she posts on her site. This young home school graduate is a history buff and has a knack for searching out the truths in history, even if they are facts we all don't necessarily like or agree with, and sharing them with the rest of the world. Keep up the good work Olivia.

Kay @ The Rustic Cottage, ,for her generosity. She frequently gives away bars of home crafted soap. Thank you Kay for always looking for ways to bless others.

Marcia @ E-Homebody, ,for her thought provoking essays. I just love reading material that gets my mind to thinking.

Nicole @ Heart4MyHome, ,(yes, I know she's the one who selected me but I just can't help sending another award back out to her) for all her friendship, prayers and encouragement. For many years I could not understand how it was possible to have a friend one had never met face to face. But that was before I became friends with Nicole. Even though we only know each other through cyber world, I've somehow connected with her and genuinely consider her one of my friends. Nicole, thank you for all the support you've so generously given to me during the past year.
