I am so shocked and honored that Sue from Bella Shabby would think to give me these following awards. I am simply not the award type, and have hardly ever received an award for anything, let alone an honorable award that so many people should see. Thanks so much Sue, your a sweetheart.

This is the intent of the award that is passed on:
"These blogs believe and invest in PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time, and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers, who must choose eight more and include this cleverly written text into the body of their awards."

What this award is about...
Bloggers who show great attitude and gratitude.
What you have to do...
Upon receiving The Lemonade Award, you also pass it on to other bloggers who you think show great attitude and gratitude.
Here are the rules:
1. Put the logo on your blog or post.
2. Nominate at least 8 blogs which show great Attitude and/or Gratitude!
3. Link to your nominees within your post.
4. Let them know that they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
5. Share the love and link to this post and to the person from whom you received your award.

I would like to say that it has been amazing how many wonderful and encouraging friends I have met since discovering the blog world that I had no idea even existed!
There were so many choices but here's my list to be Doubly awarded!

Sorry I have to cut this off at 7 as my son just had to leave and I don't know how to link by myself :)

Christmas River
Miss Gracies House
A day in the Life

Hi Kathy,
I found your blog through BellaShabby. I so enjoyed looking at all your stuff and realized we have kindred spirit. I have 4 kids and have homeschooled them on and off.
Drop by and say hi on my page.
Have a blessed day!

Hi Kathy,
Thanks so much for the award, that was so sweet of you. I always have so much going on I save the computer stuff for last so it is constantly, getting pushed back. Seems like I don't give it the attention I would like. It is so fun to keep up with everyone's comings and goings. And also fun to share some of the crazy things I am up to. Hope to see you soon.

Awhile back you asked about my other blogs-those are some that I *try* to use for business but seem to have a hard time keeping up. Imagine that:)
Have a great week!
