And in other things that happened this week, and yes, there actually was life beyond the 900 (900!!!!) or so prizes to win in the giveaway, a couple of wonderful ladies awarded me with a couple pretty nice blog awards.
From Faith at Gold in the Clouds. Faith, this one very much humbles me that you would give this to me. Thank you.
I'd like to pass this on to a couple of ladies. Chris from Come to the Table. Ever since I have met Chris in the blogging world, she has consistently been an encouragement to me with posts that are sincere and from the heart and pointing to the Lord.
Katherine at Raising Five. If you have kids and you don't know Katherine you need to get over to her site and read away. Katherine is absolutely refreshing in her honesty as she writes about raising a Godly family. As she teaches us principles of raising a family, she is not afraid to laugh at herself or to admit her mistakes.
And this award from Jen at My 3 Boys and I. What a cute award. Thanks Jen! I want to pass this one on to a couple of ladies whom I've felt have truly become a blog friend forever. This group of ladies has been there for me in one way or another beyond our blogs.
Linda at Second Cup of Coffee
Shalee at Shalee's Diner
Barb at A Chelsea Morning
Gibee at Kisses of Sunshine
Momrn2 at My Quiet Corner
Beck at Frog and Toad Are Friends
Laura at I'm an Organizing Junkie
Because I missed doing up a Thursday Thanks Tank yesterday I'm making this my thanks for this week. I truly am grateful for these particular friendships which the Lord has given me through this medium of blogging and I am very thankful for each and every one of you whose blogs I may visit and every one of you who leave me comments. You bring me much joy, smiles, prayers, conviction, teaching, encouragement and friendship.
