Blessings and Awards

A few days ago I published a post on something I was struggling with and quite frankly I was blown away by all the wonderful heart felt comments I received. I thought I'd get a few here and there but I never DREAMED I'd get so many. A few of them were from new blogger friends that stopped by, thank you for visiting! Funny husband and I decided to take a much needed few days off over this New Years Holiday and I had just gotten a new cell phone with Internet access shortly before. During our trip with friends up in Clearlake, I checked my email about 4 times each day and I got to read new comments. Thinking, I like this this is great! It was so great in fact that my battery went dead. lol My husband would ask me, "Whatcha doing?" and I'd say, "getting advice". I just want everyone who was kind enough to leave a comment, my husband and I greatly appreciated them all. I had initially struggled with putting this subject out there on "blogger land" but I am so glad I did, it has given me such insight, who knew!

Now for some Awards. My friend Laura over at Our Scented Cottage has blessed with the "Reward of Merit"
These Reward of Merit cards in summary were handed out to students of the Victorian era for achievement and performance at school. They were so coveted, they were even pasted in Victorian scrapbooks. So cherished were these cards, they were saved for over 100 years! Laura thought it was time to bring back this tradition in relation to blogging! I thank you Laura for choosing me as a recipient! Please stop by and visit her log and her new on-line store. This lady's blog is full of recipes for everyday things from cleaners to her latest, lip balm!

My second award is from my sister Janeen, from ChaChaneen.

Thank you Janeen for this great award. I have only been blogging since October so it is an honor to be included in the Best Blog of 2008! If you have not visited my sisters blog, please do so you will enjoy her whit and humor along with her funny stories about her kids. I am supposed to pass this onto 15 people and that is alot! But I can't truly pick just 15 because there are so many that I feel that this award should go to. So, for those blogger friends of mine that would like to have this award, please feel free to accept this gift from me to you. :)

Hi Melody!

Happy New Year and I'm sooooo glad Tigger is doing fine. :) Congratulations on your award. I may just help myself to that one too. :) I just found out there is a no kill cat shelter right around the corner from me called PAWS. I am going to call to see if I can volunteer my time there. I hope they let me! May 2009 be more than prosperous for you and your family! Lots of hugs. :)

Hi Melody, That's a lovely Victorian card! Congrats on the awards. Your blog is so wonderful (and so are you) that you certainly deserve nice things. Your posts are always so much fun. The kid thing will work out and everyone will be happy. I just know it. :o)
I've taken a couple of days off too. Just kinda tired for some reason. Probably looks too much like winter for my tastes. [sigh]
Have a great weekend!
