The sun is shining!

It's true! Another day without rain... I am amazed, and so pleased.


My post for this morning will be short, as I am meeting a friend to shop and have lunch. The blog award you see above is from our sweet Nikki! I am so tickled that she thought of ME! "Over The Top" is a real compliment – I would have expected “Over the Hill”........

Now for the rules: I need to pass this award on to five people, post on their blog to let them know I left this award, and then I need to answer a list of questions in ONE word. If you know me then you know one word is TOUGH! I will do it though.

Ok, so I can't follow the rules. I’m such a rebel. How can I pass this award on to just 5 people? There are too many of you out there that I would be leaving out if I tried to pick five.

In my humble opinion, you are all “Over the Top”. Since I started blogging, I have met so many wonderful, talented friends. Your creativity, kindness, and generosity never cease to amaze me. There are so many of you that I feel like I’ve known forever! You all go above and beyond on a daily basis taking care of chemo patients through Angel programs, supporting our country’s soldiers, helping sick or grieving children or friends, or just sending up prayers when we need them!

So...when I grow up, I want to be just like all of you! You juggle families, jobs, financial burdens, illness, and more, and you still find time for each other. Each day, when I turn on my computer, I look forward to reading your notes of excitement when you get a spot on a DT, or your notes of exasperation and exhaustion when your home gets flooded, or pride when your son gets an A on an exam, or accepted into college.

Blessings to each and every one of you, my many “Over the Top” friends!!!

Feel free to grab this award and play along, and pay it forward!

How nice was this post??? Loved reading all about the things I didn't know about you - although I knew just about everything it was still fun to read.
