Sunshine On My Shoulders Makes Me Happy...

Oh wait, that is the song. I used to love that song by the way. The Sunshine Award – I Won! My first award – Check it Out! My new friend Debbie at Just Breathe passed it on to me.

I am so excited and feel very honored. I backtracked and looked at some of the previous winners. It has been around for a while. Following is the scoop on it:

The Sunshine Award is awarded to bloggers whose positivity and creativity inspire others in the blog world. Below are the rules for accepting these awards.

  • Put the logo in your blog or on within your post.
  • Pass the award on to 12 fellow bloggers.
  • Link the nominees within your post.
  • Let the nominees know they have received the award by commenting on their blog.
  • Share the love and link to the person whom you received this award from.

My list of nominations is below. It was very hard to decide whom to give this award to. Part of my list were encouraging me from the very beginning when I had no idea why or what I was doing, and they have stuck it out with me. Others, we have just become acquainted through Random Dozen. Thanks Lid! And then there are those whose words administer to my heart and my soul. And there were several others whom I would of loved to include, but twelve was the cut-off. I would like to say thank-you to all of you. Here is my list. Don’t forget to go over to their corner in blogland they love visitors.

Angela at Slaughterhouse Rules
Linda at 2nd Cup of Coffee
Robin at Be Still and Know
Beth E at Outnumbered, Three-to-One
Sassy at Sassy Granny
Elaine at Peace for the Journey
Kelly at Chatty Kelly
Angie at Angie's Ad Lib
Cathy at Tales of the TCKK Family
Thena at Patiently Waiting
Chel at Abiding Branch
Christy at The Secret Life of an American Wife and Mom

And again I just want to say A Special Thank-You to Debbie at Just Breathe. Everyone needs to check her out; she is one of my newest friends!

until next time... nel

    Awards are so very sweet and fun.

    It's a cold rainy so a bit of sunshine is a welcome addition to my dreary morning


  2. You are so sweet. I'm glad I found your blog through random dozen. But I never take anything by chance. Thank you so much for the award.

  3. Thank you, Nel...with all the bad weather we've been having here, I need a little sunshine! ;-)

  4. Nel,
