It's award time here at the Forrest! A few days back, I was given this "Gratitude with Attitude" award by Cindi (Somewhere Over The Rainbow). This was so sweet of her. She gave the award to two others besides me, and cited "I may not get over to read their blogs as often as I would like to but every time that I do, I am reminded of how grateful I am that I ever found them in the first place!"
Thanks so much Cindi! I appreciate the sentiment and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I'm so glad you visit my blog, and even more that you manage to extract some sort of meaning or enjoyment from anything I post here!! I find that amazing. :)
So passing along the torch, It is my pleasure to give this award to the following (3) three people:
First, My friend Awa, because she has become a great friend and I'm grateful to have gotten to know her much better in recent months. She's an inspiration, and an Independent lady! Taking care of those kids, and kickin major ass in her Scrapping and life in general!
Second, Sweet Tink (from Pickled Beef). She has been kind enough to award me a Golden Spork award before, and I am grateful to have made her acquaintance through our delightful "Weekly Words Challenge". She's got a great eye with the camera, and an attitude to match! Thanks Tink!
Third, is another newer friend on the blogosphere, Furtheron. He is unafraid to show us what he's going through, and he keeps battling life's blows with a good heart. He struggles daily, as many of us do and he is continuing to improve and stay strong day after day. I want him to know that I appreciate his words, and his stories that he shares, and that he is remarkable too. Take heart and always love and trust yourself... everything works out as it is supposed to. I am grateful to have made your acquaintance as well!
So there you go lovely blog pals. Take your awards, and pass them on if you feel like it, if you don't that's just fine too. I also want to say I am grateful to the bits of knowledge and joy that you all bring to me. I enjoy reading each and every one of your blogs, and only wish I had more time to do so... You're all winners to me.
