The Lemonade Award

Snowman Hill has given me the great honor of the Lemonade Award. This award is given to bloggers who show great attitude and gratitude. I've been told by Cat Daddy that I can get an attitude, but I didn't think that would get me anything except in trouble. Who knew? I do have a lot to be grateful for and I thank God everyday for allowing me to get up each morning knowing it's a clean, fresh day with my mistakes behind me and the chance to try again. I am grateful He gives me the words to express my joy, happiness, sadness and even anger. I am most grateful that He allows me to do the things that make me happy and to be with those who bring happiness into my life. Ok, sniff, sniff, let's move on. What I am supposed to do is list 10 other people who I think deserve this award. Instead, I think I'm going to take a page out of Mindy's post and ask that y'all pay it forward for me. If you take the time to read this, I challenge you in the next week to go out into the blogosphere and find just one blogger who is in need. It could be a prayer request, a sick baby, a willing shoulder to cry on, a need to vent or just someone who would like to have a comment to know someone is reading what they have to say and cares they are saying it. Whatever the need is, find it and fill it. Just one, then come back and let me know who they are so I can go say hello too. Thanks Krista!!! I really do appreciate it and think you are just a doll!

Wonderful Debbie. I love the idea of "a clean fresh day with my mistakes behind me." A wonderful way to go through life. That Mindy is a dear. I will be hunting up my contribution to your list. You rock, Pam
BTW on my son's dishes, I had purchased the cups from e-bay for the basement hangout but he loved them so I gave them to him. I found the black and white dishes at Wally World. Very inexpensive and for a guy with roommates it did not matter if a few were broken. They made a great set for a guy out on his own for the first time.

Now that we've finished thanking each other over and over and over...we can get on with business! Awesome post...been working on something similar (great minds) Yes I hope to be at Junk Palace on Saturday...was going to ask if you would autograph the box! You are fabulously famous or famously fabulous! Either way ...you rock!

Hey, Girl Great idea for the Lemonade Award. I got one a couple days ago from a neat southern gal, Kudzu Kween. I passed one on already, but I like yours & Mindy's idea to "pay it forward". New blog hunt...hey, does Cat Daddy know he's married to such a poet??!! Beautiful words...*elaine*
