Christmas Spirit Award

Awhile back, Ruth at Me, My Life, My Garden, presented me with the Spirit of Christmas Award. Today, my friend, Denise at Shorty Bear's Place presented it to me once again. Thank you Ruth and Denise. I'm truly honored to receive this award. It's beautiful and you're both very deserving of the award.

This award was originally given out by Santa. The code can be found here. Santa says "Quite simply it is those that have a generous and giving nature. Those who care about others. Those who have a kind word to say or a broad shoulder to lean on in the times that others need that. Those who display the "Spirit of Christmas".

That said, I would like to present the award to some very special people.

Ladies, please go here to pick up the code for your award.

There are so many people that deserve this award. Unfortunately, I tend to only pass awards along to five people. Thanks to everyone who visits my blog and uplifts me with their inspirational words. I cherish each of you.


  1. Congratulations to you on receiving this award! You have a warm and homey blog that is just full of the Spirit of christmas!

    Thank you very much for awarding me in turn!

    I am very honored to receive this award once again! I posted my picks a little while back.

    I think it is a wonderful way to honor and recognize others in your blogging circle!

    Have a great day!

  2. T*mmy,

    Thanks for your kind comments and I'm glad you enjoy visiting my blog. It's nice to know that people find my blog "warm and homey."

    Yes, this is a great way to recognize our blogging friends. Have a wonderful week.

  3. Congratulations on your award!

    I also have something for you on my blog -- a special treat. Go check it out!

  4. Mary,

    Congratulations on this beautiful award. You deserve it more than anyone I know. Thank you for passing it on to me. I just don't know how to post it on my blog. I have no idea. Where does the code go? Sorry that I'm such a techno-challenged person. But I would love to have it, if I knew how to do it.

    I have been gone all day, and just got home. I do appreciate you passing this beautiful award on, Mary. If I figure it out, I will post it proudly!


  5. Mary,
    Like Renie, I am techno-challenged. I've been trying to post the award you gave me earlier in the week. I'll keep trying!
    Thanks again,

  7. You are precious to my heart, love you.

  8. Renie,

    I have emailed you step-by-step instructions on how to add the award to your blog. If you have further questions, just drop me an email. I will be glad to help. You truly deserve the award.

  9. Andrea,

    Thanks so much for the "Sweet Treat" awards. Love 'em.

  10. Willow,

    I will post on my blog how to place the code in your sidebar.

    I don't remember if the award I gave you earlier in the week was HTML code or not. If not, just click on Customize in the upper right corner of your blog and click on page element and then click on "upload a picture."

    If you need further help, just email me. It's easy to do, but takes a bit of getting used to. We all have to learn. I'll be glad to help.

  11. Denise,

    You are a true and dear friend. I always enjoy your visits.

  12. Mary, thank you so much. It is so sweet of you to think of me -- and Christmas is just around the corner. I do think the Spirit of Christmas should exist in us all year through.

  13. violetlady,

    I'm glad you like it and yes, we should carry the Spirit of Christmas in our hearts throughout the year.

  14. Mary,

    Congratulations! This is a beautiful award and one that you richly deserve.

    Thank you, very much for awarding it to me. I am honored, my friend. I'm going to go back and get the code now so I can post it when I get back on the computer.

    Thank you. :-)
