An "Exceedingly Charming" Award...

My First Award
I had to share with you the wonderful surprise I had waiting for me today, Lisa at Antiques and More ( ) was sweet enough to gift me with the "Proximidade" Award.

This award is written in her native Portuguese language and it focuses not on the glory and fanfare of blogging, but in the PROXIMITY to one another through this on-line world.
Here's the definition of the award: "Blogs who receive this award are 'exceedingly charming' say its authors. This blog invests and believes in the PROXIMITY-nearness in space, time and relationships. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or 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."

Now I will award this to eight very special bloggers who have inspired me to be a better person and blogger.

I chose to select my bloggers from a group of ladies that vary from everyday!
Super MOM's,
a 73 year old grandmother that I admire so much,
a couple of loving sisters,
wonderful Artist,
a Grandmother to the real Mr. Perfect,
A Blogger (who really is a Journalist in disguise) who writes a beautiful obituary to a fly that dies in German glass glitter,
and a Texas beauty whose blogs are constantly being sent to my younger daughter at Auburn University with a note attached saying, "Wow, look at this beautiful role model".
That's what special about blogland,
God leads us to all different types of women to take care of our daily questions if we allow HIM!
The one thing I love about Sue so much~ She loves life, she knows God created her as she is, for a reason and she is happy because of that!
Why can't we all be like that!
Just live a Charmed life as God wants us too!

Well Yvette you sweet thing you!!! :)
What a blessing to be included in this group of women. What wonderful friends I have met here - amazing the bonds that are made even though we have not met face to face. Meeting soul to soul is more like it I think.
You have blessed me dear friend.!

I came over from RR Mama's blog. What a pretty blog you have. I also wanted to thank you because RR Mama sent two of your fabulous tiles to me and one of my friends who had a stroke this year and we both LOVE them. You are very creative. I hope you have a blessed weekend!
