Queen For A Day

Hey Everybody,...I got an award! One of my favorite blogger friends made me "Queen For A Day!" (You can read about Veronica below the award). The pictures are of special people in my life who always love me and make me feel like a Queen!

This is my sweet granddaughter Abigail,...the designer of my blog.
This is a picture of me and my husband John in Yellowstone. He always makes me feel like a Queen
This is a picture of me with my brother Dan and my sister Judy. Judy left us in January of this year, to go live with Jesus. Judy always made me feel special, and treated me like a Queen.
This is a picture of me with my sweet middle daughter Lynnette and her kids from a few years ago, when we went on a "Make a Wish" trip with our sweet little Anna,...(sitting next to me). Anna felt like a Queen on that special trip. She went to be with Jesus just 10 days after we returned from that trip.
This is a sweet picture of my oldest daughter Lisa. She was the first one to suggest that I should have a blog. Lisa is a jewel in my crown!

My blog friend Veronica gave me this award and I want to thank her for honoring me with it. She was awarded it by one of her friends because she is such a fantabulous person! Please go to,

and read about her,... and her sweet little girls, and her really neat crocheted hats that she makes and sells on her Hat Blog. It is Called "Hooked On You", and I have her button on my sidebar. They are just adorable hats for babies and children, and very affordable.

I am finding that there are a multitude of gifted people out there in Blog Land. So many of you have shown love to me. And I find it a priviledge to visit your blogs and discover little tidbits about each one of you. I often pray for you and for the needs that you blog about. I feel like it is a ministry to pray for, and encourage others. And I know that many of you have prayed for me and for my family, and I thank you so much.

I do not have computer skills. When I try to do new things on here I often fail. My daughter Lisa encouraged me to start a blog because I love to write out my feelings and my stories and poems, so she thought it would be a good outlet. And my daughter Lynnette actually got me started. My grandaughter Abigail put my blog together. She is a gifted young lady of 15,...actually she will be 16 on June 4th.

I would like to thank Lisa, Lynnette, and Abigail for giving me a new joy in my life. I do enjoy the social part of blogging, and I have met so many nice people.

And once again, I would like to thank Veronica for making me a "Queen For A Day!" It was fun.

Linda... May 2009

What a beautiful post Linda! As it says in "The Little Princess", all girls are princess!

That picture of Abigail looks just like Lynnette, She is such a doll!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and encouraging me on Mother's Day! It is hard having all these children that have died isn't it. but we are stronger for Christ, and the important thing is to get to the other side of the storm...I hear there are Rainbows! I have seen glimpes..:) Blessing Shi~
