Love, Sweet Love

How blessed, am I. Tigerlily, bless her heart gave me a reward. I find the timing of my reward so funny because I think my blog is becoming somewhat of a whinefest.

The rules of the award are:

"These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagate. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly written text in to the body of their award."

My blog was created as a way to clear my head of the mess of a broken heart from a failed marriage, as well as a place to share my love of cross stitch. It has become so much more. I've made so many incredible connections with people through this blog and I'm more blessed for it and for you in my life. Thank you.
Now the hard part.

Krista - You are the bomb! You have absolutely no idea of the impact you have on my day to day life. How lucky I am to have in my life and in my blog world now too!

Bethany - This is one kick ass woman. I found her via the BLBE and I'm so happy for it. Bethany, your approach and attitude to this weight battle inspires me in a way that words could not touch. You rock!

Cathey - What to say about you? I think you must hear that a lot. :) Oh, how I love you. There are so many times that I wish we lived closer. Funny thing to think and say about a person you've only ever 'met' via type written word on a computer. You are an incredible woman and I'm blessed to call you friend.

Amy - I have such a great time with Amy's blog. Her honesty and candid approach to all things is refreshing and makes for a fun blog read. What makes it even better is she's a Habs and Yankee fan - me too!

Graciela - This is another blog I found via the BLBE. She's not on my team, but I still love on her blog. I can't quite put my finger on what it is that I love most about her blog, but I love see a new entry in my google reader. Sending you great big hugs, my dear friend. Again, another to feel like a friend and to have never met.

Chiloe - I love reading about "Chiloe's" everyday life. The cross stitching pics are awesome and the pics of the kids are too cute. The wonder of the Internet is the closeness you can feel with another that is literally on the other side of the world.

Dani - You are one of my many stitching hero's. Not to mention a WW hero too. Your commitment to your health and WW is inspiring! Thank you so much for how you inspire me to be better even though you may not know it.

Velda - My dear sweet, Velda. How my life would be so different without you in. I am so glad to have you in my world, real and Internet. How our friendship has evolved and grown over the years. I wouldn't be near the person I am today without your love and support. MWAH!!!!

This award comes via
Mumzy's blog. That would be Cathey's mom. How cool is that! I get a Kreativ Blogger award from a quilter. Can you imagine that? Something I would love to do, but am scared shitless to try. This just cracks me up. I'm easily amused, eh.

There will definitely be some repeats - sorry.

Cathey - Again, I love your blog. It is so fun. It is always a mystery as to what you'll entertain your readers with from day to day. The topics

Felicity - You never fail to impress me with your approach to life. I love the stitching updates. They are gorgeous. The dogs are too cute.

Chris - Your LOL pics are awesome. The music links, especially the country, are some of my favorites. Keep rockin' it out. Your blog is awesome, hon! Big hugs.

Bre - Oh, girl. Where do I begin. You are another of my very favorite people ever. You are my hero. I love your attitude and watching how you tackle life and it's many challenges. You're an incredible inspiration. I thank you for all you represent to me and for every positive comment you've made that made a difference every single time!

Kristin - I have an absolute ball reading your blog. Your curse words crack me up. I have no idea why, but they make me laugh every single time I read one. I'm juvenile, I know. I love your EM (Evil Mom) stories. They are classics, each and every one. Big hugs, hon!

Deirdre - You've been away for a bit from your blogging. I worry, but trust and hope that all is well. I love your passion for life and now training for your run. Your love of books is something that speaks to my heart. Thinking of you lots!

Helen - I may not post comments on your blog as I should, but in no way does my lack of posting indicate how I feel about your blog. You are an incredible woman with an impressive skill with cross stitch. Thank you for your blog world contribution!

Angie - You are amazing. I've been reading your blog since the day you ran your first 5K. I linked over from Amy. I not sure if I've ever commented. You are truly an incredible testament to me to never give up. I've learned so much from your blog entries and have such a blast with the various things you do. Thank you so much for the difference you make in my day to day thinking about this weight loss journey! You truly rock!

Phew! That was a lot of work. To acknowledge you all was very much worth the work though. This is just my way of saying 'Thanks'. You do not have to follow the rules. It is not my intent to keep you all busy doing this, just wanted to tip my hat to you all.

Big hugs!
