Thursday Thirteen #10 - My Pay It Forward Award!

Yay! I just received my very first blogger award! Thank you Charlotte At Home in Scottsdale!
That means a lot to me. I, like Charlotte, have only been blogging three or four months as well. I never dreamed it would be so rewarding. Blogging, for me, just started as being a 'getting my thoughts down on paper' type of journaling. But, now, it has become something I never knew was out there--a community of friends who are so encouraging and uplifting not to mention absolutely fun. So, in the spirit of 'receiving and giving' I'd like to pay this award forward to a few who have most recently made my day (in no particular order):
1. LeAnn - not only for her friendship but her blog is yummy eye candy!
2. Diane - The encouragement and prayer you offered up for us recently has helped ease a rough situation. Thanks.
3. Jan - I believe you were my first commenter/friend. Thank you for always having a kind word.
4. Betty - I know you already have a ton of awards (which speaks volumes about you!) Please receive this one as well.
5. Ronnica - Fun and interesting writing (Tales of a Kansas Girl).
6. Nadine - Uplifting blog for sure!
7. Ronda - Not only a beautiful artist but beautiful person as well.
8. Brenda - Enjoy visiting with you!
9. Polly - More eye candy and encouragement through scripture.
Two blogging friends who always challenge me to be more like Jesus through their thought-provoking bible studies:
10. Barbara, and 11. Susan
My two new friends. I look forward to taking a more leisurely stroll through your blogs!:
12. Lorie and 13. Jess
I've obviously listed only 13 in keeping with the Thursday Thirteen game rules. But please, ALL my blogging friends, you know who you are...accept this award with love cuz you ALL make my day!


  1. Congratulations on receiving your
    1st award!!

    I've only been blogging since February and I'm loving it too...I have met sooo many nice people and am making such great friends. It's opened up a whole new world...and like you say, a fun one at that!

  2. Hi Brenda,

    Thank you so much for the award. I do already have this one, but it still means a lot to me that you wanted me to have it, too. I will definitely post about it soon in one of my blogs.

    I gave an award recently to all the people on my blogroll, and you are one of those people. You just overlooked it somehow, and I never got around to notifying everyone that I was giving that award. It is a picture of a rose and says: "Thank you for being a rose in the garden of my life."

    I want you to have that award and please feel free to pass it on to others if you would like.

  3. hopefully I make yor day as well.if so I'm snagging it it not oh well,I'm still snagging it for there are a lotta people that i can give this to.

  4. Brenda, I just looked and I gave that award out in my post from last Sunday. I blogged about a meme called Slice of Life Sunday, so that would be the title of the post. The award is down toward the bottom of that same post.

  5. That is so kind of you. I know I keep coming back, but I just like the vibe in here. You always make me smile and give great tips.

    Thanks again Brenda.

    Hugs Jan :)
