I have to sincerely apologize for not acknowledging a couple of awards I received earlier. I think I procrastinated because I had such a hard time trying to decide who to pass them onto because I think everyone who even has a blog deserves them! So, on that note...

Thanks Amy!

Thanks Deb!

Thanks Nancy Face!

I would like to pass these on to ALL of you who comment on my blog! I love your comments! Thanks all!!!


Drum roll please.....

Introducing the Beacon of Hope Award!

This is an award I created to honor those blogs that are truly inspirational and leave their readers feeling hopeful and uplifted. I have decided to award it to just two blogs at a time instead of giving it to several at once like most awards. However, those that receive it can pass it onto five or more. I would really like to give it to every single blog I read regularly, but then that wouldn't make it as special. So...

The first two
Beacon of Hope Award
recipients are:
another drum roll please....

This blog is so much fun that I always leave feeling uplifted and in a good mood! She has a way of making the most mundane things of life so entertaining! She has a great attitude and I always come away laughing!

Yvonne has the most positive attitude about everything and anything she blogs about. Her posts are always very insightful and full of wisdom. She teaches me many things just from reading how she handles her life situations. I always leave her blog feeling uplifted and grateful.

Nancy Face said...

Wow! That was such a surprise, and so sweet of you! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

I'll need to ponder for a while before passing it on! :)

Tiffany said...

That was so sweet of you! Thank you a million. I love ya.:O) I don't know how to link though. Could you tell me how, please? I know, I'm not really computer smart. Thank you again. You just made my day!

Jodi said...

Okay Tiffany let's see if I can explain this well enough for you to understand!

Go in to your create a post. To the right of the font colors choice is a green circle with a little chain link thingy. Click on that. That will open up a little window to link. Click on TYPE and choose "other" then just paste the address of the blog you are linking. If you want to link one of your posts then you would copy and paste the address for that. It's really handy! Hope that is clear-er than mud! Let me know if you need my help!!!
