You Make My Day!

Thank you Sherri for the You Make My Day Award! How nice. Sherri makes my day too. I visit her blog every day to see what she has been up to. I enjoy her knitting adventures and her family life, especially how she writes about their journey with a Downs Syndrome child, with gentle grace.

I am blessed by so many people on the Internet that it is hard to narrow down to ten, so if I didn't choose you, it doesn't mean you don't make my day! :o) Here are the rules:

“Give the award to 10 people whose blogs bring you happiness and inspiration and make you feel happy about blogland. Let them know by posting a comment on their blog so they can pass it on. Beware you may get the award several times.”

Amy She started me blogging and she encourages me with her honest writings on grief and maintaining faith in difficult circumstances. She's also witty, intelligent and creative. I always look forward to seeing what's next on her blog.

Lynette She is not only the Children's Education Director at our church, but she has also proven herself to be a good friend. She has been a faithful listener, always ready to pray, her smile lights up a room and she loves my kids - what more can I say?!

Fruitful Words Gritty, meaningful observations, ideas and journaling from our Women's Ministry/Small Group Leader. I appreciate the gentleness of her spirit and the power and strength of her testimony and faith.

Virginia Queen Bee My newest online friend, who I met through Amy's blog. We have a lot in common. It's always fun to make new friends.

Heather An old IRL friend who I met on the NorCalScrapbooking list. Heather is a breath of fresh air, joyous, faithful and encouraging. She was an "angel" God sent at the right time when I was first getting used to living in California and felt all alone.

Shelley My best friend, my SPICE, my patient listener, my partner on wild adventures, my "laugh until you pee your pants, don't have to explain yourself to be understood" friend and a new Bee Keeper (Or working on it!).

Cary How can someone not make your day when the Holy Spirit wakes them in the wee hours to pray for you? Cary is one of the biggest hearted people I have ever known and she blesses me in so many ways, not the least of which is with her lovely Corriedale Comfort Wool!

Carissa A young Mom who is extremely intelligent, creative and generous. It has been a joy to see her journey over the last few years. She has three of the most adorable kids I've ever seen! :o)

Donna Another newish friend. Donna is a Pastor's wife and another Mommy of Twins. They just turned one. Pray for her! LOL She spins the most incredible stuff on her spindle, posts wonderful creativity inspirational photos, pulling ideas from God's Creation. She strikes me as a "still water" that sometimes runs deep and sometimes sparkles and bubbles. I'm enjoying getting to know her.

Deborah She started the wonderful Christian Artisans list which has been a Haven for me on the Internet, but she also inspires me by her faith, family adventures and her health journey and knowledge. Sometimes it feels like Deborah and I are living parallel lives.

There were several other people I could have chosen as well as some who don't have blogs. Thank you to anyone who reads here. I love hearing from you. I hope you enjoy checking out my friends' blogs!

You are so sweet. Thanks Theresa.

Teresa said...

Thank you so much! I've really enjoyed getting to know you, as well!

Amy said...

Thank you for the award. I've been having a hard week and your kind words were so helpful. :)

And, I'm so glad you and Teresa are friends now. I can't tell you how many times I have double checked to make sure I don't write to her and Theresa and to you as Teresa! ;-)

Thank you Theresa. I just read comments on some of my old posts & hadn't realized they were there because apparently I am not getting e-mail notification for some reason.
