Oh my goodness! Is this button cute or what? Karen has bestowed this sweetness on me today. Xandra, from Heart of Service has created this fun award. Here is what she says:
"it's for blogs that I must read every day without fail . . . They make you laugh, cry, think and feel connected every time you read a post. They give you a thrill as you see them loading into your browser and you get an equally satisfying thrill when you see that they have commented on your blog."
There are several blogs that I feel that way about, and I am sure there are so many that I haven't found that would become favorites for me--I just wish I had more time to visit more blogs! If you haven't read these blogs, hop on over and visit them--you are in for a real treat!
First of all, if Karen hadn't already received it, she would be on my list. She is a sweetie and I wish she was my irl neighbor! Even though she has the award, I want you all to visit her.
~~Annie, from My Life As Annie, is also just such a sweetie. Her blog is so cheerful and she is such a wise woman, great mom and wife, and was such a warm encourager/visitor to me when I first started blogging. Her blog is always one that I click on to visit when I log on. Thanks for being such a great bloggy friend, Annie. OH, and she very graciously designed my little signature you see on my posts.
~~Julie, from Joyful Days, is another sweetie. She is such a thoughtful blogger. Her blog during Christmas was very inspirational and really focused on the reason for the season. Her blog is definitely a joyful place to visit. It is another one I always look forward to visiting.
~~Stacy, from Exceedingly Mundane is another darling blogger. She poses fun question of the days, reads a lot which result in great book reviews, and is just a down home genuine person! She is cheerful and encouraging and thoughtful and visiting her blog is like visiting someone in their home. Thanks for all your thoughtful comments on my blog Stacey. I have also recently begun to visit Stacy's sister Gail's blog. She is as sweet as Stacy!
Really, any of the blogs in my sidebar deserve this award and I would be thrilled to have all of them living in my irl neighborhood! So go and visit all of them!!!! :) My life is so much richer since joining the blog world and meeting these special people!
