I had an e-mail the other morning from Catherine at Catherine de the Cups. She told to me to peek at her new post and see what was waiting for me. And much to my surprise, this is what was there.
How very fun! Thank you so much Catherine! I never dreamed I would be developing friendships when I finally decided to take the plunge into blogging. I just had hoped to be a little inspirational to someone else, as so many others have been for me.
“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 propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."
This was easy. I am going to award this to the people who have become my first "friends". Thank you so much for all of your inspiration and time spent toward making each day a little more special; full of prayers and scripture, wishes and dreams, values and opinions, pictures and thoughts, love and friendship. Thank you to each one of you.
