You Like Me! You Really Like Me!

Tuesday, September 8, 2009

I have made some fast friends online through blogging. People who don't blog or participate in any kind of social media will question the validity of calling someone I have never met a friend. But I honestly cannot have shared what I have shared with my bloggy friends over the past few months and then turn around and call them acquaintances or, even worse, strangers. They are my motherhood mentors, my confidantes, my sisters in blogdom. So, it is especially meaningful when one (or more of them, in this case) honors my blog with an award. It lets me know that I have touched their lives as much as they have touched mine.
The Redhead Riter, my favorite blogger (go visit her blog to see why), bestowed upon me, not one, but two awards:

sunshine award

the You Add Sunshine To My Day Award, which I am passing along to:

Teresa at Too Many Heartbeats (this is a ditto sentiment)
Maureen at Professional SAHM (this is her retirement present)

superior scribbler award

the Superior Scribbler Award, which I'm passing this along to the following Superior Scribblers:
Circling the Square Table
Painter Mommy
A Spiritual Connection
Jill's Believe It Or Not

The rules for this one are:
  • Each Superior Scribbler I name today must in turn pass The Award on to 5 most-deserving Bloggy Friends.
  • Each Superior Scribbler must link to the author & the name of the blog from whom he/she has received The Award.
  • Each Superior Scribbler must display The Award on his/her blog, and link to this post, which explains The Award.
  • Each Blogger who wins The Superior Scribbler Award must visit this post and add his/her name to the Mr. Linky List. That way, we'll be able to keep up-to-date on everyone who receives This Prestigious Honor.
  • Each Superior Scribbler must post these rules on his/her blog
splash award

he Splash Award is given to alluring, amusing, bewitching, impressive and inspiring blogs. Teresa at Too Many Heartbeats gave me this enchanting accolade. The splashy blogs that I am passing this one on to are:

The Redhead Riter
The Mahogany Way
Execumamas, I hear ya!
Speaking from the Crib
The Scholastic Scribe
Angie's SpotDays of Whine & Noses
Natural Hair...Natural Products

The rules for this one are:
  • Put the logo on your blog/post
  • Nominate and link up to 9 blogs which allure, amuse, bewitch, impress or inspire you.
  • Let them know that they have been splashed by commenting on their blog.
  • Remember to link the person from whom you received your Splash Award.

You are so sweet to include me in your awards ceremony!!! Thank you! :)

Teresa @ ♥ Too Many Heartbeats ♥ said...

Awww, you are too kind! I truly appreciate the award but what you said about bloggy friendship means even more. It *is* hard for outsiders to understand but that's OK. They should become bloggers, too! They surely do not know what they are missing! ;0)

BTW, congratulations on ALL your awards! You deserve them as much or more than anyone I know.

Thaaaaaaaaaaaaaaank You!

You are one of the sweetest ladies I "know" and yes world, I know her even though I haven't seen her face-to-face yet! LOL

Traildust is still in business right? That was our favorite restaurant. We will have to go there!

Jill said...

Thank you, Teresha! I guarantee I won't exactly follow the rules (sorry, I'm a rebel...LOL!), but I truly appreciate you thinking of li'l ole me! I see Marlie is growing so beautifully! I LLLLLOOOVEEEEE the Week Three picture of her, I swear I want to kiss-kiss up my computer screen. She is beautiful! And look at you, all back in the swing of things, finding time to breathe, muchless blog?! You are incredible!!!

Painter Mommy said...

Thanks so much for the award! I have it on my list of things to blog about - a list that seems to get longer and longer. LOL I have been so crazy busy that I hardly have enought time to blog. But of course I could not resist sharing about my crazy cruise experience. :)

But to answer your question about the presentation... it really went well. I was nervous at first, but then I got over it and actually wound up speaking for over 25 minutes. Everyone said I did good, so I was happy. I am not sure if this is something I want to continue doing - we will see...

And yes, it is so sad about how third world countries have to live and survive. I have thought a lot about Jamaica and what we went through and how desperate those people must be to take care of their families. If I wasn't so overwhelmed & pregnant - I would've loved to take the time to stop at every shop and buy a little something from them.

Well, again, I say thank you for thinking about me and stopping by my blog to comment about the cruise. I so appreciate your time and support. Have an awesome rest of the week, DAWN aka Painter Mommy
