Slap my Hands I'm So Far Behind

My plate is full to over flowing with all the kindness you girls have bestowed upon me. I'm sure you think I've forgotten all your kindness, but alas.. NO!.. It's just been a bit more crazy around here than "normal".. (whatever normal is).. Around here you never know when another hospital run is going to have to be made, so I'm posting all of these today while I have a moment and the memory to do so.. lol Since coming to blog land I've been amazed at all the friendships that have developed. All the kindness and most of all , all of your prayers and support. So, for you to bestow all these honors my way is even more humbling. Because I'm so late in posting all of these I hope you don't kick me out of blog land..lol. Many many thanks to each of you great ladies for thinking of me. I pray I haven't forgotten any of them, if I have it's certainly unintentional !!



I received this award from Susan from over at http://thoughtsfromovertherainbow.blogspot.com/. She is a new blogger in town and has the sweetest blog. If you haven't been there you must stop by for a visit.. I know she'll be glad you came, be sure to tell her I said hi!! Susan I can't thank you enough for thinking of me with this award ! A person can never have too many friends.. My instructions were this: Please give more attention to these writers. When you receive your award pass it on to eight or more people who must choose eight or more. Include this cleverly written text and a link to their blogs. Then let them know they've been selected.



I recently received a double award from Katherine over at http://ladykatherineteaparlor.blogspot.com/ . I also received the same award from Janet over at http://thisismylife.blogspot.com/ Both these women are just the sweetest most giving women.

Description of the award:
Finding the Heart and “Sole” of Friendship. It is the perfect “platform” for recognizing that each of us wears unique qualities of friendship (like a favorite pair of shoes that we wear comfortably and repeatedly). These qualities contribute to the lives of others.
Barb over at http://barbstreasures.blogspot.com/. has given me the "attitude and gratitude" . Barb also is a fairly new blogger in town. She has the greatest talent for making the cutest birds nest. Her love of God flows through her words and will truly touch your heart.

Hey, looky here! Another award! Isn't this a cute logo? Thanks to Kathy of Emptynester for presenting it to me. You should go visit Kathy. She has amazing transformations inside her home and we can all learn from her. Her daughter is so talented and that furry cat of hers is so cute.
The rules of this award are:
1) Accept the award and post it on your blog along with the name of the person who gave it to you as well as a link back to their blog.
2) Pass the award on to 5 blogs worthy of the award.
3) Be sure to notify the recipient that you have left them an award!
Now I would like to pass this award to some wonderful blogging people. I wish I could send it to all but it looks like we are limited to 5. Boy! This will be a tough decision because so many are deserving.
Let me pass it on to:


Now girls.. you know I can't just pick and choose a few of you when you all mean the world and deserve these awards..So for each of you that swing by and leave your kind words I would love for you to take each of these awards and call them yours.. Many many thanks..hugs ~lynne~

Lynne,

I wish I lived near by so I could make a pie for your Hubby. I love to bake and I often make different goodies for people. I've been doing that for the girls in my doctor's office, I started just before Christmas and I've kept doing it, they are thrilled. When I told them I wouldn't be baking during lent, they pouted, doctor too. LOL
I don't know how you had the time to drop by my blog, you've had so much to deal with. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your DH. Take care.

Hugs
'D'

I sure know how it can pile up and have to remind myself that blogging needs to be a fun diversion from my day to day work, not another item on my To Do list. Your awards are wonderful.

Have a wonderful Sunday

Hi Lynne, I guess you would say I've been "shadowing" your blog. Things have been overwhelming here, and I know that things have been overwhelming for you, too.

We'd all be kicked out of blog land by now...that's the beauty of blogging...sometimes life gets in the way but that's a good thing because then you have something to blog about later

Have a great week!
