Blog Award...Take Time To Make New Friends...

My new friend Cathy from "Cathy Kennedy's Blog" honored me with an award. And she also introduced me to some of her other friends by posting about them and linking to them. I will enjoy reading all of their stories and getting to know them. You will too if you click over to her post.

I want to thank Cathy for adding me to her list of new friends. I am honored, and I'm so glad she enjoys my blog. She writes books for children and I purchased one for my youngest grandsons...and it is really cute!

The Life is Good Award recipient requirements are as follows:

* Thank and put a link back to the person who gave this award.
* Share a few things about yourself.
* Pass the award onto some other bloggers you deem deserving.
* Inform these said bloggers that they have received the award.

It's just that simple!

I love all of my bloggy friends and have given away awards to some of you I am picking a few of my newer friends. Click on their names and it will take you to their blogs.

Sharon "The Pansy Cottage Girl" says that these are some of the things that she loves....

Flowers in old buckets
The Beach
Anything Pink
Flea Markets
Old Iron pieces
Did I say chocolate?

She is very creative and has her own shop! You will really want to browse her blog!

Peggy over at "Created for His Glory" is a lovely Christian who shares her heart for God on her blog. She loves horses and always posts beautiful the ones of her horses in the snow the other day. Then she posted an interesting blog about when to blanket a horse, and told how to take care of them in the winter. I really enjoy her blog.

Richella over at "Imparting Grace" has a beautiful home and she has excellent taste..and I love her decorating. It is exactly my taste! Her house looked beautiful inside and out at Christmas. She is one beautiful lady with a lot of style. (:>) And she is a mom to 3 teenage sons.

Annie from "Annie's Home" always has the best recipes. I mean have you ever heard of Ketchup Cake? Well she had a recipe for it today...and it looked good and sounded very interesting! She always has a lot going on and I enjoy visits to her blog and so will you.

Here a few things I will share about myself:

In real life I am shy and clam up in a crowd of people...but I enjoy one on one conversations.

I can express myself in writing and I love to write stories about my life...and I also enjoy writing poetry. Blogging is a wonderful outlet for me. Someday I would like to publish a book with my poetry.

I love my husband, my three grown daughters and their spouses...and my 11 well as the ones we have that are living in heaven.

I love the Lord Jesus and I have a sweet relationship with Him...and full assurance of going to heaven when I die. We have all grown closer to Jesus through our losses...and He has been faithful to bring us through, step by step to a place of peace.

I like to read...and enjoy my trips to the library. I also like to cook...but not to bake...(I am a messy baker!) I enjoy Rachel Ray because she is like that too. I love several of the cooking shows but always get so hungry while I watch them!

I love HGTV and all of the decorating shows, and I love the game show channel and the Hallmark channel. And I like to watch Millionaire and Wheel of Fortune. At Christmas time I watched all of the Christmas movies...and now for Valentine's Day I have been watching all of the Happily-ever-after movies! (:>)

Life is Good!
