Honor or Shame

This post is being written with mixed emotions. On the one hand I feel deeply honored and grateful that some wonderful people felt that I was worthy of an award. On the other I am a bit ashamed to say that it's been quite some time since a couple of these awards were given to me. Furthermore, there were also a couple other awards that were given to me, but, it's been so long that I can not remember what they were or who gave them to me. So to those of you who aren't mentioned here, please know that I greatly appreciated the fact that you thought of me. Please except my humble apologies for being so absent minded. At times I feel overwhelmed by all the things I need and want to accomplish in a day and some things just get lost in the chaos.

Most recently I was given the Best Blog Award by not one but two wonderful people. First it was given to me by DigiVickie and also by Surviving Motherhood...barely
Both of these women are not only wonderful people but also full of talent, charm and personality. I truly love them both. (I'm not just saying that about Tanyia because she's my sister

So the rules to this award are as follows
Accept the award and post it on your blog along with the name and link of the person who passed it on to you.
Choose 15 blogs that you have recently discovered and you think are great.
I don't always follow rules so I'm not going to go with 15 but here are my choices
Sugar the Golden Retriever
Duck and Wheel with String
The Queen Speaks
Mature not Senile

My next award comes from Theresa's Treasures and I want to thank her so much for passing this on to me. I can only hope that since it was back on Oct 26Th that she passed this on, that she still wants to include me in on her circle of friends.

My list of recipients for this award would take me all weekend to type out since there are so many of you that I now consider to be my friends. Every one of you who stops by here mean so much to me that I want All of you to have this one. You are the best.

Finally, dear Kat, I do so apologize for taking forever to thank you officially for this wonderful award. Kat's blog Candles, crafts and whatnot is such a wonderful place to visit. If you haven't been there before you really should check it out.

The rules to this award are much the same as the first one. Again I'm going to cheat and pass it on to each and every one of you who bless me each day with your warm, witty and wonderful comments.

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend. Hugs to you all.

  3. Ann...Thank you for the award..I will post it up today with the rules as least I will when i work out hoe to do I would also like to thank Ratty for directing me to your blog in the first place as I enjoy reading both of your blogs very much.

    Congrats on all your awards Ann :-)

  4. Sugar, you are most welcome. Duke and I were hooked the first time we saw your blog. I could tell it was worth reading by the way Duke wagged his tail.

    Ratty, Thank you very much. I enjoy your blog as well, it's on my list of daily stops.

  6. Aww Thank you for including me in your list! Apparently Kat and I are on the same page - because in my upcoming post on Monday, you're on my list for the same award. (Ironically, I got it from Kat as well. Isn't she the sweetest person??)

    It means a lot that you added my name...even if I write the most convoluted, tangent-filled blog in the universe!

    You're such a kind friend - thank you for blessing me with your friendship. xx

  15. Indeed, CONGRATULATIONS!! You are most deserving. It's always hard deciding who to share them with. Everyone's blog is great in it's own way and deserving of such awards. It's just that the post would take tooooooo long to write :)

  16. Congratulations on the well deserved awards! I have several awards I need to post yet too. I keep a list but it still takes awhile to get them all acknowledged. Anyway, better than late than never I guess!

  17. Roschelle, thank you. Yes it is hard to choose. I have so many favorites and for different reasons.

    Beaded tail, thanks so much. I actually had a list made and then lost it. Working from memory is not a good idea for me.

  18. Congrats Ann, well deserved awards. I am sure anyone can understand time getting away from you. I seriously think there is NOT enough hours in a day.

  19. First, congratulation on your awards..
    Then I must admit, I'm like you, don't remember other awards that have passed on to me either, unless I spend time looking for them..

  20. Tanyia, thanks, I don't think I KNOW there is not enough hours in a day :)

    Icy, thank you. I even went looking for the others and couldn't for the life of me find them. At least I know I'm not alone :)


Thoughts, opinions, constructive criticism, it's all good to me.
I will delete all spam comments however, so don't even bother trying!
