Heart of a Mommy presented me with this beautiful Blog Friend Forever Award. This is what she had to say,
"I would like to give this award to Mary at Mary's Writing Nook. She was the first person to add me to their blog roll, and was a real encouragement to me in my blogging adventures. She commented on a post that wasn't apart of a meme; it just tickled me to death that a complete stranger would like to read my blog. :)"
Thank you so much. I'm very honored to receive the award and am happy that I encouraged you. I love nothing more than making someone's life a little brighter. I have added the award to my sidebar and after the New Year will add it to my Awards and Gifts page.
Now I'm to pass this on to my blogging friends. I am just sitting here thinking that I have so many. I usually limit awards to five. I think that is impossible, so this is what I'm going to do. If you have visited my blog on a regular basis and I visit yours, or if we email each other or have one another's snail mail addys, please consider that you are a recipient of this award. I cherish each and every one of my blogging friends and wouldn't want to leave anyone out.
