I Have Made A Decision....

Good morning bloggy friends~

How are you all doing? It's a nice sunny but breezy day here on the Island. We awoke to a light dusting of snow on the ground but it won't stay long now. I believe the farmers call any snow we get from now on, "Farmers' fertilizer." Fertilizer or not, I'm happy that Spring is here and in April, the songbirds will be back!

For several months now, I have been doing some pondering about what to do about awards and tags. Some of you may be aware that I have three blogs and I try to keep them up to date as best I can.

I thought about keeping all my awards in another blog as some of you do, but I am pressed for time and the time I do have, I would like to spend writing and visiting your blogs.

So, I have made a decision not to accept any more awards or tags. I hope you understand and will not be offended by my decision. I do value your friendship most of all!

Those of you who have blessed me with awards in the past, I thank you for your thoughtfulness and I feel very honoured that you have passed these awards on to me!

At the bottom of my blog are all of the awards along with the names and links of those from whom I received them. I even made a couple myself at one time to give away. I will leave them on to acknowledge all the generous folks who have given an award to me.

There is a lot of love in blogland which is evident by the number of awards below. Thank you again to each one of you and the Lord bless you for your generosity. I pray you all have a beautiful day.

Sharing from my heart~ Sandi


  1. I am overwhelmed with them, too. I am afraid I have hurt some feelings, by not posting some. I just can't keep up. It is not that I don't appreciate them, b/c clearly I do as I am sure you do, too.
    GOD BLESS and know that I totally understand.
    Hugs, andrea

  2. I totaly understand ,I stopped recieving awards quite a while back. I know the best intentions are behind them, but we are already busy enough women:)

  3. Darling I support your decision 100%. With so much on our plates and so little time, we have to do what is best for us and for you now this works. Have a lovely day, tea was great yesterday by the way.

    Love & Hugs

  4. I too felt I had to do this so I totally understand. It is soo hard for me to keep up even in samll way that I do. Your blog is soo beautiful and I do soo enjoy it and your sweet comments. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Debbie

  5. Altho it's not posted on my blog, I don't accept awards any longer either. I think most of us agree that we love the recognition of the awards and the love they bring, but it's very time consuming to follow up. I don't blame you, Char

  6. Sandi...I have seen so many blogs doing this now, and some even have a little statement on their side bar that states, 'award free'...or something like that.

    Like Andrea stated, it can be overwhelming trying to keep up with awards, or passing them along, or posting about like you, I have stopped also....I have them on my blog at the bottom of my side bar in a slide show and thank them for passing me the lovin!

  7. Hi Sandi,
    I totally understand-time is hard to come by some days.
    Take care,

  8. There is a lot of love here in blogland and everyone here accepts and understands your decision.


  9. Ja ja not to brag, but I was drowning in awards...there comes a point when they must be respectfully declined, as feelings get hurt and time gets gobbled up when trying to choose who to pass them to...

  10. what an honor to receive so many must have a lot of sweet blogging friends.

    have a wonderful weekend...


I am delighted to have you visit me and I read every comment. Please forgive me for not being able to visit you all as there are so many of you lovely bloggy friends now. I will visit as much as possible. I wish you a day filled with JOY! ~ Sandi
