I Am Truly Honored

I have just received the following award from Malisa at Moonlight Hollow. Malisa wrote that Renee is fighting stage 4 breast cancer and it was created for her by her friends, Bella and Ces. Bella had the following to say about Renee:"Renee is one human being who has made such a difference in the lives of many just by being. Her honestly, wit, intelligence, and grit are a tremendous source of inspiration. She can elicit raucous laughter and guffaws in her banter, and then turn right around and offer the most heartfelt, gentle words of wisdom and emotional support. She is a spreader of love,simple and true. And her love is infectious."This is a brand new award and I have the pleasure and honor of spreading the seed, watching it grow. I hope it finds its way to those who are like Renee: the acorn, a small package becoming a tall and sturdy oak, giving more acorns, becoming tall and sturdy oaks, giving acorns..." The above makes a loving statement to what must be one special woman and I am truly honored to be a recipient of it. Thank you Malisa! Now she goes on to say that I am to pass it on to eight others, which for me will be no easy task. Each of y'all know you are my favorite, just don't tell the others. And while we do all share a genuine bond, I have picked eight who, for whatever reason, seem to be my go to girls! They give me chocolate, prayers, advice, inspiration, laughter when I most need it, support and never question me or my choices. And I have been known to make some doozys! In other words, they accept me for who I am and love me in spite of it.
  1. The Apiary(who has always been my number one fan)
  2. Frippery(we're cheerleaders on the same team)
  3. The Domestic Fringe(who always finds the humor in life)
  4. Whisperwood Cottage(who sees beauty where others fail to look)
  5. Delighted Heart(who helps me keep the faith)
  6. The Veranda(who never fails to make me laugh)
  7. Mlle. Magpie(who I want to be when I grow up)
  8. Bella Shabby(who has been a follower since the start and is always there for me-ALWAYS)

Thank you ladies for making this tiny acorn a mighty oak (or at least a shrub)! Thank you Malisa for giving me such a beautiful award.
