Another Award, Another Birthday, and Another New Year!

Hello and Happy New Year everyone. How did you spend your New Year's Eve? Hubby & I spent the evening with our sons Jeff and Jordan, playing Monopoly. Jordan won of course, as he usually does! We are having a blizzard today so we will be spending the day cooped up all cozy and pray that the power doesn't go out. We could get up to 40 cm. of the white stuff with exceedingly high winds! Yuck!!

With the New Year, comes another birthday!
.....Yes, I'm a New Year's baby. I was supposed to be born on Christmas Day and after waiting a week, my mother decided it was time to get things rolling, so she took a dose of castor oil. Lo and behold, I finally made my appearance on New Years Day; and that's ALL I'm telling you!

Yesterday I visited Suzann's blog at Lavender and Roses at and was pleasantly surprised to find that she had won an award and she had graciously passed it on to me. Still new to blogging, I'm always surprised and honoured that someone would want to bless me with an award.
To accept this award, I must mention who I received the award from and link back to her. Then I am to write the following into my post:

"This blog invests and believes the PROXIMITY- nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly written text into the body of their award."

I find this award very complimentary and I feel blessed to have had it bestowed upon me. What a wonderful birthday present! Thank you Suzann!

I would like to bless the following eight bloggers with this award:

Charlotte from Charlotte's Weblog -
Judith from Judith's Quiet Moments -
Jenni from Nest to Keep -
Rachel from A Romantic Porch-
Debra from Glory Feathers, Starlight, and, Roses-
Wendy from Pink Slippers-
Dolly from From My Cherry Heart-
Have a wonderful day everyone and God bless you as you begin 2009 with Him!
