Saturday, November 8


It's been a while since I posted any awards and I've received quite a few. Forgive me for being so tardy.
The above award was given to me by Mike from Rambling Stuff. Thanks, Mike! I'm glad you think my blog is cool.
This award is from Renie at Renie Burghardt's World. Thank you, Renie! It's lovely.
Thank you, Jojo. This is a beautiful award and very much appreciated.
Thank you, Jill and Grams! This award is lovely.
A while back, Storyteller at Small Reflections, celebrated her first Blogoversary. She presented those who helped her celebrated with this lovely button. Thank you, my friend.

A few others also presented me with awards and gifts. I've posted them all to my awards pages, which can be seen HERE! For the most recent awards, go to page 3.

And now I'd like to give a few things to my friends and readers.

The above award is for all of my blogging friends. You know who you are. I cherish each of you. When I started blogging, I never thought that in just over a year's time I would have made so many wonderful friends.
The above button is for anyone who comments on this post. I am from Canada and our Thanksgiving was in October, but I know yours is coming up soon. Enjoy!

Another for my friends and thank you, Denise from Shorty Bear's place for passing it on to me. It is adorable.
I hope you enjoy the awards and that they bring a bit of sunshine into your day. Enjoy your weekend and rememeber to do a random act of kindness. ~Blessings, Mary~

    I am trying to get around to visit everyone again...playing catch-up! I try, but my work takes precedence. And I love blogging so much! Wish I could blog every day! I only got ONE post in for the entire month of October! This is our busy season with snowbird rentals being booked plus the upcoming holidays....I usually work all day right into the night til 3 or 4am. Lots of bookwork to do when the phoneline stops ringing, so I do my daily paperwork at night when I have no interruptions. So I am about worn out. LOL

    Wishing you a happy and blessed Sunday!

  15. Thanks for your valuable post. Over time, I have come to understand that the actual symptoms of
    mesothelioma are caused by your build up connected fluid involving the lining of the lung and the chest cavity.
    The infection may start inside the chest area and multiply
    to other limbs. Other symptoms of pleural mesothelioma
    cancer include g weight, severe inhaling trouble,
    throwing up, difficulty ingesting, and inflammation of the face
    and neck areas. It should be noted that some people having the
    disease do not experience virtually any serious indicators at all.
