WELCOME!!!

WELCOME!!!

Tuesday, November 27


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.
*** The entry below this one is my Christmas meme. Please be sure to read my memories of Christmas and take a few minutes to participate. It's wonderful reading my blogging friend's Christmas traditions. ***

  2. You are welcome! :) Truly, you gave me so much encouragment when you commented on my blog without a meme. (((Hugs)))

    I will participate in your meme today, but I have so much to do today. I will have to do it sometime tonight. Maybe tomorrow.

  4. Mommy,

    I'm glad that I was able to support and encourage you. Nothing makes me happier than helping people.

    As for the meme, take your time and do it whenever you can. There's no hurry. Christmas is still about a month away.

    Blessings for a great day.
    Mary

  5. Congratulations, Mary! :D

    And I loved reading your Christmas meme just now...what wonderful traditions and memories!
    I think my favorite of those you mentioned was riding in the sleigh to find a tree...wow, that sounds heavenly!

  6. Good Afternoon Mary,
    Congratulations on your "Beautiful Blog Friend Award". You truly deserve this award and other awards that you receive. You are really an inspiration to me and others. I so enjoy reading your blog as I've told you before. I loved your Christmas Meme. I would like to give it a try, but I don't know how to do it on my blog. LOL. I may do it later tonight after I get home or tomorrow. I just love all the Christmas decorations on your sidebar. They are just beautiful. I see at the top of your page you are going to Florida. I bet you are really excited about that. You will be going to where it is warmer. Although, Florida does have some cold weather these days, but nothing compared to where you live. I have been to Disney World only once and that was in 1973. We got there at 9:00a.m. and at 3:00p.m we had only done 3 things. We went in August and it was so hot and the lines were terrible. We stood in line to see the President's Wax Museum because my Dad wanted to see that, for 2 1/2 hours. Since then, they have added so much stuff. I would love to be able to take my girls down there someday. I know they would love it. Well, take care my friend and have a great Tuesday. May God Bless You and Yours.

    Hugs,
    Karen H.

  7. Congratulation on your award! I realy like the way you give out awards where we don't have to choose our blogging friends!

    I received this award earlier and have given it out but I am adding your name to who has given it to me!! Thank you for thinking of me!!

    I haven't heard from Denise by e mail today and I am worried she is in bed really sick or is in the hospital because I hear from her every day. Have you heard from her? Let me know if you have.... Thanks, Carolyn

  8. Tammy,

    Thank you for the compliment on my Christmas meme. Yes, riding on the sleigh behind my favorite team of horses to go to the back of Grandpa's property to get the trees was a lot of fun. We still cut our own tree, but we don't travel by horse and sleigh.

    Blessings,
    Mary

  9. Karen,

    Disney World has changed a lot since 1973. It has really changed since my first trip in 1979.

    I am not as keen on going as my husband and my grandsons. We are taking them with us. It's such fun to see their faces. Disney is certainly magical. This time we are going to try and do all of the parks. We'll have to see.

    Take care and thanks so much for dropping by. I certainly hope you took a copy of the award.

    Blessings,
    Mary

  10. Oh you are most deservedly the one to receive the award Mary. And I feel honored that you would include your friends to show off the beautiful award. You're so kind!

    Thank you.

    [I'm in the middle of helping hubby trim stuff in the back yard and came in for a bottle of water...must go back out to finish before there's no more daylight.]

    I'll put the award up on my blog in the morning.

    Hope your day is treating you well!!!

    [by the way, I'm not sure if you noticed or not, but on the Christmas meme, I've been adding blog urls in a listed-links of those that leave comments in my blog that they've done it too...you may be interested in reading some]

    Thanks again.

  22. Joan,

    This Christmas will be different somewhat. We are planning to leave for Florida on the 27th and so we are not sure what we are doing. We do know we will not be cutting a 7 foot tree like we usually do. I will miss that. However, we have to make choices and hubby and the grandsons want Florida, so I am outvoted. LOL

    Blessings,
    Mary

  23. Congratulations, Mary! You are so kind hearted and friendly. I believe if you could, you would hug the world.

    Now I have to check out your new meme. I may not be able to respond until tomorrow.

    Hugs,

  24. Good Afternoon Mary,
    I just finished the 12 Days of Christmas Meme. Diane helped me with it. I wouldn't know what to do without her. I hope you are having a good day. It has warmed up here to 57 degrees. Rain is in the forecast again for the weekend. Take care my friend and have a great afternoon. May God Bless You and Yours.

    Hugs,
    Karen H.
