A Little Bit of Sunshine in This Mighty Long Winter

Catherine at The Giesbrecht's: Time and Tide has give me a lovely blogging award and it is most timely as I haven't seen sun in what seems a long time:

The Sunshine Award is awarded to bloggers whose positivity and creativity inspire others in the blog world.

Wow Catherine, thank you. That is pretty humbling that you think my little 'ole blog does that. The rules for accepting this award:

* Put the logo on your blog or within your post.
* Pass the award on to 12 fellow bloggers.
* Link the nominees within your post.
* Let the nominees know they have received the award by commenting on their blog.
* Share the love and link to the person whom you received this award from.

Now I do have a little old rule of thumb for myself about passing on awards and that is that I pass to a max of 3, I just find it so hard to pick and choose because all those who read here and all the blogs I read should get all the awards because you all bless me in some way. But the 3 I'll choose this time will come from the three areas of life: mental, physical and spiritual.

Ellen at The Happy Wonderer. Ellen has a lovely blog full of beautiful, creative pictures. Her pictures encourage me to get out there for walks and take my camera with me. I love how she writes about her family and how close her and her extended family are really inspires me and encourages me to keep those contacts and not let family relationships slide.

Laura at The Organizing Junkie. Laura always keeps spurring me on to become a better organized person so that I can have more peace in my everyday life. Believe me I need the spurring on. She's always got great organizing round ups going and great tips for everything from how to use containers to how to sort.

Donnetta at My Quiet Corner. Donneta's little blog is my quiet place. It's where I go when I need encouragement, when I need to be picked up, when I need to be reminded no matter what I'm facing that my God is a big and loving God. I can scroll back into all sorts of archives and they are always fresh and uplifting.

Thanks Catherine for making me smile with this sweet little award.
